If our church is disaffiliating because of the stand of the mothership against LGBTQ rights, does this allow the big church to become stronger in a discriminatory stand? Is our church creating more or less change in the stand of the mother church if we vote to change?

can you describe the vote process for next Sunday?
Emily Muller
01:20:26
If we vote to disaffiliate on Sunday, can the actual break with the church be put off while we fundraise and consider financial components? I understand that we would have time before the final break must be made in order to keep the property.
