Mike,

Per your request, we have moved New Albany FUMC’s disaffiliation exploration from Sunday, December 11 to Monday, October 17 at 6:30 pm.  After talking to Rev. Tom Potter, the meeting will be held in the sanctuary of New Albany FUMC.

At that time, the information you have requested regarding present procedures around various alternatives available to United Methodist congregations will be provided.  You are encouraged to invite all members and constituents of the congregation to attend this meeting.  This will allow everyone to hear the same information at the same time and to ask any questions they might have during our time together.  We anticipate the meeting will last approximately 90 minutes, 60 minutes for the presentation and 30 minutes for question and answer.

Our goal is to provide the congregation with all the information needed to prayerfully discern God’s will for the future ministry of New Albany First United Methodist Church.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you for your leadership and faithfulness.  Know Dr. Miskelly and I are praying for Rev. Potter and the precious congregation at New Albany FUMC.  Let us know how we can serve you and your congregation.

Blessings,

Cheryl
