Called Special Session of the North Alabama Annual Conference
A Special Session of the Annual Conference of the North Alabama Conference of The United Methodist Church is called to be held on Saturday, December 10, 2022, starting at ten o’clock a.m. CST. It will be within the bounds of the North Alabama Conference with the specific location to be announced in the near future.
The purpose of the called Special Session of the Annual Conference will be to process the current requests for disaffiliation under ¶2553 of the United Methodist Book of Discipline. Membership of the called Special Session will consist of the voting members of the June 2022 Annual Conference (¶602.5).
This is the first of potentially three gatherings our Annual Conference will have to vote on disaffiliations for churches who, after going through our discernment process, discern to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church. The other dates will be at the regular Annual Conference session in June 2023 and possibly another called Annual Conference in December 2023.
The December 2022 called Annual Conference will be followed by a worship service for the purpose of blessing and sending forth of churches who are disaffiliating from the North Alabama Conference.
