As we wait for decisions from General Conference regarding full inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons in the life of the United Methodist Church, we naturally turn to the Bible to discern God’s Word.
Clearly Christians are not all of one mind about homosexuality and the church. This Bible study, Claiming the Promise, presents several points of view that we think offers us glimpses of God’s Word in the midst of our troubling dilemma.
We hope only that you will prayerfully participate and consider its point of view, whether it differs from yours or not.
For the first session, please have:
*A Bible (any version)
*Look up the definition of the word “inspiration” in the dictionary. Have that definition with you.
There is no reading assignment prior to the first session; however, if you wish to read Chapter 1, you can view the full study here:

Whether we live in the heart of a city, a suburban neighborhood, or the rural countryside, we all live in a community. Our lives intertwine with other people and organizations. The following suggestions are ways to be spiritually connected with our communities, every day and anywhere.
Walk through your neighborhood or community with an open, prayerful heart. What celebrations and needs do you see? Who are the people you encounter? Pray for those you pass.
Get a map of your community. Every day, choose a place on the map - a street, a neighborhood, a home, a business, or a public place - and spend time praying for the people and activities in that location.
Whenever your community has a town hall or city council meeting, devote time beforehand to pray for the meeting, for wisdom and compassion for all involved, and for the well-being of the community to be the result.
What community service programs are in your town? Make a list and each week, choose one to be the focus of your prayers.
Contact one of the community service programs in your town. Ask for ways you could help - collecting food for the food pantry, supplies for the shelter, etc. - and Put your prayers into action.
To learn and grow in the way of love, to be forgiven and in relationship with God, and to practice the way of love and forgiveness daily.
When living in love, forgiveness and relationship with God completely changes the world.
Green Street offers multiple doorways to experience, learn, and live God's love, so that together we can transform the world.

The Upper Room is a major asset of Green Street that is not being used productively right now. The Sustainable Budget Task Force recommends looking at many possible uses and the ramifications of each to help secure Green Street’s financial future.
To work with the City of Augusta, and our District and Conference leadership, expanding the range of acceptable uses for Green Street’s building. This may include recommending to the Board expenditures on improvements to Green Street’s physical plant recommended to secure that expanded range of uses.
The Task Force may seek funding from the Board to hire a Realtor and other consultants to help with finding any suitable tenants for the space available. Ideal tenants will help Green Street build partnerships for ministry in the local community.
To work with our District and Conference, once any promising tenants are found, to ensure Green Street’s compliance with The Book of Discipline, and to seek the approval of the Board (as Trustees) to lease space to any tenants.
To report to the Board and the Congregation monthly, even if there’s been no new progress, to keep this task ‘front of mind’ as an essential piece in solving Green Street’s financial puzzle.
To work diligently to complete this work by the end of December 2021.
We can not succeed without volunteers from the congregation. If you can help - or if you know someone who can - please call the Green Street Church Office at 207-622-0843
