Over 400 Methodist churches in Texas left United Methodist Saturday
VICTORIA, Texas – Over 400 Methodist churches in Texas left United Methodist last Saturday.
The choice comes after a disagreement with the church’s rulings regarding same-sex marriage. Three local churches in Victoria share their opinion of the ruling.
Officials at First United Methodist Church on 407 North Bridge St. say they are staying with the United Methodist Organization. Officials at John Wesley United Methodist Church on 8300 North Zac Lentz Parkway have not yet taken a vote on whether they plan on leaving United Methodist. Officials at Webster Chapel United Methodist Church, 405 South Wheeler St. say they will remain with the United Methodist organization.
A meeting with a vote is planned for next month.
