On September 26, 2019, the 232nd Anniversary of Jesse Lee Day, nine churchs of the New England Conference notified Bishop Devadhar that they have begun the discernment process for disaffiliation from The United Methodist Church.

We have developed an eight-session curriculum that fulfills the requirements of Resolution 211.  We would like to proceed collectively with other Methodists. Having multiple congregations share a common process will create connection and accountability that will benefit all of us.


As we work through the curriculum we are thinking about gathering our churches together for a celebratory conference on January 11, 2020 in Portland, Maine.  If you would like to attend please contact us at
