Why IGRC for Unity?
The United Methodist Church in Illinois has always been a group of diverse people with different opinions on many things. Our unity has always been in our relationships and our commitment to serving the world in the name of Jesus Christ. This unity is threatened by forces that seek to divide and separate us. We believe that we are stronger together. We believe that our United Methodist family needs the diversity of our ideas united under the big-tent of God’s gracious love.
We are working to foster conversations, relationships, and actions to build up one another and find a way to stay together in midst of our differences.
