Welcome to Mountain Sky on the Way Forward. The purpose of this page is to inform the conference on press releases, petitions, and other important information related to the special session of General Conference in 2019. Below you will find a timeline of the work of the Commission on a Way Forward, as well as a statement from the Council of Bishops regarding this special session.
Use the menu or the links below to navigate other resources, such as press releases and commission information.
Mountain Sky pastor, A.J. Bush, along with other staff, has created a series of videos to help explain the Special Session of General Conference in 2019. Feel free to share these with your congregation or ministry.
As The United Methodist Church prepares for the special called session of General Conference in St. Louis, we invite you to join the Mountain Sky Conference as we pray for our denomination, our local churches and all who will be attending the gathering. Beginning today and every day through the rest of February, please take a few minutes at noon to pray. The attached prayer card and instructions below can help guide your reflection time. Through prayer, we will find strength together. And we will know that no matter what is decided at General Conference 2019 or what happens in the weeks and months following, we can continue to be vital congregations sharing the grace of Jesus across this area that we love.
Prayer card Instructions:
We will also offer a sign-up and template for churches and individuals in the Mountain Sky Conference to pray for a designated hour each day during General Conference from Feb. 23 to 26. Look for more details about that in a future conference communication.
