In the midst of transition in the United Methodist Church, Bishop Palmer and the Extended Cabinet of the West Ohio Conference are excited to share this new ministry initiative called North Star Congregations.

North Star Congregations are local churches in the West Ohio Conference that are prepared to welcome anyone whose church has closed or disaffiliated.

If you or someone you know becomes disconnected from a local congregation, please be assured that there is still a place for all in the United Methodist Church. Consider these United Methodist faith communities as places of rest and recovery with people who will provide care while offering a haven of peace, grace, and opportunities to be in ministry. To become a North Star Congregation or to find a North Star Congregation, click here.
