Mariners Disaffiliation Resolution Approved by the Pen-Del United Methodist Conference

Clergy and lay members attending the 2023 Peninsula-Delaware Conference of the United Methodist Church voted on June 9th by an 88.9% majority of 305 to 38 to approve the disaffiliation of Mariners Bethel Church and 91 other churches.

UMC Bishop Easterling indicated that all matters involving disaffiliation of the 92 churches will be completed on or before December 21, 2023.  This will require Mariners payment of pension, unfunded healthcare and apportionment obligations to the United Methodist Conference totaling $432,824, less 2023 apportionments and payments we have already processed year-to-date.  We have targeted settlement by August 31.

The Global Methodist Church has granted Mariners conditional acceptance upon the approval of our disaffiliation resolution, settlement of our financial liability and completion of related administrative details with the Pen-Del Conference.
