The council will hear from the UMC Council of Bishops regarding the constitutionality of three sets of legislative petitions coming from the Commission on a Way Forward known as the One Church Plan, the Connectional Conference Plan and the Traditional Plan.

The oral hearings will begin at 2:30 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) Tuesday, Oct. 23. Click here for more details about the schedule.

The hearings will be open to the public and broadcast at UMC.org/live and Facebook.com/resourceUMC.

Hearings will remain available on the website throughout the month to make it convenient to watch despite time zone differences and will be archived.

More information about the docket for the meeting, which takes place Oct. 23-26, is available online.

The three plans will be presented to delegates at the 2019 Special Session of the General Conference, which meets Feb. 23-26 in St. Louis.
