The Pastor’s Pen

If you haven’t heard already, Mary Beth Muncie resigned in December as our     Director of Music Ministries. We celebrate Mary Beth and wish her well after 12 wonderful years of ministry at FUMC. The best part of this announcement is that I get to tell you that Mary Beth and her children intend to remain part of our church family. When you see Mary Beth, tell her “Thank You” for her many years of service to our church.

In a quick turn of events, our SPRC Committee moved to hire Matt Tyer as our new Director of Music Ministries. Matt is currently a social studies teacher at New Albany Middle School, and he has lots of experience in the local church in terms of leading a thriving music ministry. Matt is married to Summer, a science teacher at New Albany High School. They have four children and two grandchildren. Please make sure you give the Tyers a big FUMC welcome when you see them!

I’d love to end this note to you with “See you Sunday,” but I will still be in quarantine from COVID. Yes, I had both vaccine shots AND a booster. And, yes, my symptoms have been relatively mild. Stay safe, get vaccinated, get boosted, and wash those hands!
