Dear Friends,
After much prayer, thought, discussion, and direction from the Conference it has been decided that we need to shut the church down for the safety of our members. I want you to know that
this was a very hard decision to make, and even harder after our worship on Sunday. Worship on Sunday had such a lovely spirit and I think all of us were blessed to be there. But hard decisions
need to be made and for now our decision is to be closed. I am asking that small groups and councils not meet at the church either.
Please know that I continue to be your pastor and if you have any needs (prayer, counseling, visiting, etc.) I invite you to call me. During this time, I invite us to be in prayer, stay connected to God, and continue to check on one another.
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jay

Global Ministries, the worldwide mission and development agency of The United Methodist Church, invites members to give love, joy, hope and peace through a denomination wide year-end giving campaign. Between November 1 and December 31, Global Ministries will share stories of transformational mission work and the ways financial gifts through the Advance impact lives.

Since 1948, support of the Advance – the designated mission giving channel of the church – has raised funds that positively affect change within communities and empower individuals across the globe. Thanks to faithful giving, the Advance has funneled more than $1 billion dollars to equip ministries worldwide.

Global Ministries connects the church in mission through evangelism and church revitalization, missionaries, global health, and disaster response and recovery.
Every contribution makes a difference in this important work.

Beginning November 1, mission-funding gifts to the Advance through the year-end campaign can be made at umcmission.org/givelove.

For additional information, contact donationhelp@umcmission.org.
