Love Your Neighbor Training

The Fountains is pleased to be hosting one of 54 “Love Your Neighbor” trainings hosted nationwide by the Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA) and Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN). The goal is to train 1500 United Methodist laypeople and clergy in one-to-one meeting skills so that they can contact the 606 US delegates to the 2012 United Methodist General Conference and encourage them to vote towards establishing a Fully Inclusive United Methodist Church.
