A Word from Bishop
Bishop Schnase offers some comments on disaffiliation and why no matter your theological leanings, you have a place in the UMC.
We're interested in maintaining a UMC presence in communities where churches have disaffiliated. If you want to retain your UMC membership despite your church disaffiliating, please click below. There is a form to submit to retain your UMC membership.
Special Called Session
A Special Called Session of the New Mexico Annual Conference will be held virtually on May 20th.
That We May Be One
Information and conversation among clergy and laity who want to work together for the future of the United Methodist Church–holding together various backgrounds and theological positions to offer the strongest possible witness to the love of Jesus Christ.
Some of our churches are opting to consider disaffiliating from the UMC. The NMAC Trustees have created a policy to guide churches through this difficult process.
Why Do We need this page?
Since the General Conference didn't meet in 2022, the decision regarding disaffiliation was regrettably pushed down to the local church. Some of the information that churches entering the disaffiliation discernment process are receiving is skewed toward persuading people to vote to leave the UMC. We want to ensure that our people are getting all the information that they require to make the best decision for themselves and their church.
"There's a place for you in the UMC. Whether you approach things from a more conservative theology, or centrist, or more progressive theology...You're an important part of the future of the UMC."
