In the time of disaffiliation in the UMC, Magnolia United Methodist recognizes that we have people of various beliefs in our pews. We are a community that is striving to live together and love one another even in our differences. After polling the congregation, we have chosen not to enter into the discernment process and will stay in the United Methodist Church.
