The Traditional Plan goes into effect on January 1, 2020. We at GP UMCNext are partnering with Mainstream UMC and our GP Reconciling Churches for a #ResistHarm Kickoff on Jan. 4, 2020 to gather for Epiphany worship at Topeka Countryside UMC at 10am and bless the letters we have written to Bishop Saenz. Then we will take a trip to the Great Plains Conference office to deliver the letters.
Is Topeka too far of a drive on Saturday, or are you looking for more ways to participate? On Sunday, January 5, the national #ResistHarm movement invites all congregations and communities to take pictures of themselves, their classes, or congregations holding #ResistHarm signs and post them on social media with the hashtag #ResistHarm. You can create your own Resist Harm 8.5 x 11 and 11 x 17 signs by downloading files, banners, and other resources from our Communication Tools.
