Annual Conferences
The Rev. Andrew C. Kjorlaug, an Arkansas Conference elder and U.S. Army chaplain, presents a resolution at the Arkansas Annual Conference that calls on the state’s congressional delegation to act on “Responsible Fire-Arm legislation.” In a year that has seen multiple mass shootings, Arkansas was among a number of United Methodist conferences urging elected leaders to do more to regulate guns.

Conferences take action on gun violence

Even as United Methodist conferences deal with mounting church exits and disagreements over LGBTQ inclusion, they are bearing a shared witness on gun violence. And they are urging actions beyond thoughts and prayers.
