St Pete First Educational Series: Resources

During the Fall of 2021, St. Pete First hosted a series of three educational presentations on the current issues involving the United Methodist Church. We discussed current issues, conflicts and options. The recordings of these presentations, along with slides and handouts, are all available below.
