The Pastor’s Pen

Some great things are happening these days at FUMC New Albany!!!

First, a generous donor has agreed to purchase a church van for our congregation IF we will match it by purchasing one ourselves. We’ve set a goal of $25,000 and already have $24,250 either pledged or in hand. We are so close, and we can do this! Will you help out by calling or texting a pledge to Martha or me? Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Next, our annual Charge Conference will be held this Sunday at 6 p.m. via Zoom. The meeting code is 960 5662 5080, but make sure you swing by the church to get your information packet before noon on Friday or call and we’ll gladly mail you one. Charge Conference is the place we elect leaders and approve pastoral salaries each year.

With the addition of in-person Sunday School, our worship attendance has been increasing. Let’s make sure we continue to adhere to the protocols set forth by our Health Advisory Team so we keep our congregation as safe as possible. Know that you are loved and appreciated!


P.S.  To date, we have received 143 financial commitments for 2021 totaling $813,350. We still have 25 pledges from 2020 that have yet to be renewed which would total $89,340. We really need everyone on board and participating if we are to maintain the same level of ministry in the coming year. Thank you in advance for your continued generosity toward Christ and his work in this place.
