Linking Policy

We welcome links to our home page or specific pages, although we cannot guarantee that the URL of an individual page or item will not change. You may provide a link to our site as long as the link does not imply sponsorship or endorsement of your site. You may include a copy of our logo (but not the United Methodist cross and flame) for identification.

As a general rule, we are willing to include links to sites similar to ours when the information at the link is useful to our visitors. Acceptance of links is at our discretion. Our criteria for inclusion include:

  • Audience: we seek to address the needs of churches that are trying to be inclusive and accessible on disability concerns.
  • Reciprocating: we usually exchange links—if we include a link to your site, we ask you to list us in an appropriate place on yours.
  • Scope: we do not offer legal, medical, or financial advice or information.
  • Non-commercial: we do not seek to promote specific businesses, industries, or products.
  • We have no control over the content of pages outside of our site, and do not promise that any link is accurate, complete, safe to visit, or free from malware.
  • We cannot modify the policies under which we operate, which are specified in the current United Methodist Book of Discipline. Only the General Conference can speak for or pass legislation on matters related to the policy of the United Methodist Church.
  • In conformance with rules of the Internal Revenue Service, we cannot promote, affiliate, advocate, or endorse any political party, organization, or candidate, although we may provide information about matters of public concern.

Items that are not suitable for linking at our website may be suitable for a one-time link on our Facebook page.
