At a called Church Conference presided over by District Superintendent Rev. Don Boren, Polk Street United Methodist Church members approved the vote to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church by a majority of 74.9% to 25.1% out of 391 votes. Upon approval of that ballot a second vote was taken and 87.5% of the members approved of joining the Global Methodist Church.
This means that upon ratification by the Northwest Texas Annual Conference session in June Polk Street will become a member of the Global Methodist Church on July 1, 2023.
The Church Council approved a new church name to take effect on July 1, 2023. The new name for our church will be Polk Street Methodist Church.
More information will follow in the coming days and weeks. Thank you so much for your prayers for Polk Street.
