As the conversation on the continuing United Methodist Church progresses, the webpage, A Bright Future with Hope, provides resources to help address questions that many are asking such as: Why should I stay in the UMC?; How do I know if there will be place for me?

Disaffiliation Information & Timeline
As we provide information and timelines for disaffiliations and departures, it is our hope that local churches postpone any decision until after the General Conference meets in 2024 when we will have more information to make any necessary decisions. All information on disaffiliation can be found on our website, and your District Superintendent is always available to answer questions. The Bishop, Cabinet, Conference Staff, Conference Chancellor, and the Conference Trustees have worked together to develop a timeline to help guide local churches.
For churches looking for a helpful discernment tool to have conversations within their congregation on any given topic, the Kentucky Annual Conference has developed a "Discernment Workbook: A Christian Discernment Process to Empower Churches and Ministries to Discover their Calling."
