Covenant Relationships (80394-LC-¶2551.1b)
Amend ¶ No. 2551.1b
b) The covenant relationship shall not require that a
No United Methodist congregation shall will pay rent to another United Methodist church. However, each congregation should be expected to pay a mutually agreed share of building expenses. . . .
This addition allows local United Methodist churches other than those in covenant relationships addressed by the paragraph to pay or charge rent in appropriate cases.
