There was a Congregational Business Meeting held on Sunday October 28th to hold the vote regarding withdrawal from the Church of the Brethren denomination. The members of the congregation voted to approve the motion to formally withdraw from the Church of the Brethren Denomination effective on December 31, 2018 with 422 members voting ‘Yes’ in favor of the motion and 41 members voting ‘No’.
The Atlantic Northeast (ANE) District Board of the Church of the Brethren denomination is scheduled to meet on November 13th to bring forth a proposed settlement agreement for Midway. Following this, there will be a congregational meeting to review the settlement offer as appropriate and discuss final details of the transition. Please continue to pray for the ANE District, the Church of the Brethren denomination and for the body at Midway as we walk through this process.
Thank you to all those who are a part of the Midway Church. We thank God for each and every one of you. We will continue to walk through this process together with our great desire to grow in love and faith. No matter the circumstances, we must continue to live out the mission and purpose of God’s church at Midway – Lifting up the name of Jesus.
It is our desire to bring the hope of Jesus to the Lebanon Community.
To be shaped by God’s Word – Serve our neighbors near and far – Be a place to call home
All for the Glory of God!
