United Methodist Policies on Marriage and Holy Unions:

In 2008, the United Methodist General Conference affirmed both equal rights for couples regardless of sexual orientation and the definition of marriage as “one man and one woman.”   Additionally, clergy and local churches are prohibited from celebrating same-gender weddings or Holy Unions. For more information on United Methodist policies, click here.
