At the 32nd General Synod, the church was charged with convening a working group to produce a Manual on the Local Church. The Manual on Church Working Group has worked diligently towards these ends.

The Manual on Local Church (MLC) is now available for download! This draft is the result of five years of research, interviews, case studies, writing, review, revisions, editing, more review, more revisions and more editing! The MLC Working Group is confident this is a faithful and usable draft for Local Churches and entities in covenantal relationships with them, including Associations and Conference, to use as a resource and guide.
