Concerned and United Methodists have all reasons to smile as officials of the two Churches, (Concerned United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Church) embark on ventures that are gear towards bringing them together under one umbrella.
The disclosure was made by a member of the Concern United Methodist Church and former Representative of electoral district #5 in Bong County, Samuel K. Bondo when he attended the opening of the 22nd annual session of the United Methodist Church in Freeman Reserved.
Hon. Bondo who said there are consultations currently ongoing explained that in the soonest possible time the two churches will come together under one umbrella.
According to him, the leadership of the Concern United Methodist Church has not met with the largest group from the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, but they have been talking with the Weala District Conference Superintendent of the Church, Rev. J. Methuselah Sackie relating to the issue, indicating that they are getting somewhere.
“You know it is not a day’s event, the event is a process; that process is ongoing and you will see things will get better. People are saying the Church has been divided, I don’t see the Church as being divided” he added.
He meanwhile expressed the need for the Church to come together and make sure it remains the Church on grounds that there is nothing that is above the Church.
It can be recalled that the Concern United Methodist Church years ago broke away from the United Methodist Church on grounds that they were disenchanted and both Churches have been conducting separate Charles and Annual conferences across the Country.
It has been revealed that creation of the Concern United Methodist Church was as the result of disagreement that ensued amongst members and officials of the Church when other people decided that the David Gweh United Methodist Church be placed under Monrovia District leaving first Church in Kakata with Farmington but others suggested that the Church be placed under Weala District.
