I want to take this opportunity to share some really great things that are happening at FUMC New Albany…
1 .Finances—We finished 2019 in a very strong financial position, receiving around $75,000 more than we spent for the year. Please hear me say: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Your financial faithfulness helps to make our church a vibrant and growing congregation. Let’s keep up the good work in 2020.
2 .District Leadership Conference—Mark your calendars now for Sunday, January 26 for our District Leadership Conference. Meeting from 3:00-6:30 p.m., there will be workshops for SPRC, Trustees, Finance and other committees. Additionally, there will be sessions on Sunday School, Conflict Resolution, Church Vitality, and other topics. Bishop Swanson will be preaching at this event, so you will surely want to be here! Please know that all leaders and committee members in the church are encouraged to attend if at all possible.
3 .Worship Attendance—Worship attendance has been very strong these first two Sundays of the New Year. Honestly, I had worried that our change in worship schedule on Sunday morning would negatively impact our attendance. But……you have been faithful! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
4. CLC Renovations—The renovations to our gym are almost complete, and it won’t be long before we can resume Wednesday Night activities. Thank you for your patience as the finishing touches are put on the CLC.
FUMC New Albany is a special place, and I look forward to this year of ministry with you. May 2020 be our best year yet!
