Happy New Year! May God bless you and your family in 2019! Here are some happenings at your church as we begin this brand new year!
Mims UMC Memorial Garden Workdays Next Two Saturdays

Come and help us honor the memory of those whose ashes are in our Memorial Garden.

Taylor Property Update
We are pleased to let you know that, due to the thoughtfulness of several of members who have passed away who had named our church as a beneficiary in their wills, we have been able to completely pay off the loan for the Taylor property! As you consider how your estate may be divided when you have “graduated to the Church Triumphant”, why not remember your church family with a significant gift!
The Way Forward
As you may know, our denomination is in conversation about how we as Christians should relate to LBGQT persons in our congregations and communities. In February (23-26), the UMC will hold a specially-called General Conference to decide on “A Way Forward”. Several options will be considered. If you would like to hear more about these options, there will be an informational gathering at First UMC Titusville, Sunday, February 3 at 2:00 p.m. (The previous date/time that appears in this weeks bulletin is no longer accurate). NOTE: You may wish to watch a video of a presentation by Rev. Adam Hamilton and Bishop Schnase that you can find at https://vimeo.com/292414110
Anthony and Cherri Jicka are pleased to welcome their new grandson, Jarrett Michael Jicha, who was born on January 2, weighing in at 8 lb. 1 oz. Congratulations!
I hope to see you in worship this weekend!
