Courageous Conversations

Summer 2021


In the summer of 2021, PWUMC is focused on our “Summer of Love,” with programs, missions projects and sermons that help us learn to love our neighbor. One component of that effort is our Courageous Conversations series, tackling hot topics that people are talking about.

Courageous Conversation on Human Sexuality
Sunday, August 1 at 7 p.m.
Worship Center or on Facebook


Through the second Courageous Conversations (CC) event, Platte Woods UMC opens conversation – not debate – on homosexuality and LGBTQIA+. We will look for better awareness on the issue, and we will listen and participate in the conversation examining what the Bible “says” on it and what the church (the UMC Book of Discipline) claims.  


We will work to figure out our own prejudices and biases on the issue and seek wisdom for how Christians in a faith community should respond. 


Following the event on August 1, we’ll have small groups that will meet for three weeks to discuss further. Signups for those groups will be available soon.


Register for the August 1 Courageous Conversation event
