Our special called Church Conference was held on Sunday, March 26. There were 664 ballots cast at the church conference. 57 votes (8.6%) were cast to remain with the United Methodist denomination and 605 votes (91.4%) were cast to disaffiliate from the United Methodist denomination. There were two abstentions. Special thanks go to our tellers, greeters, nursery workers, and church staff for their extra help with this vote and meeting.
Please bring the following items to the table in the Fellowship Hall: Socks, Underwear, tshirts, diapers, formula, towels, shoes, toothpaste, brush, deodorant, kids toys, manual can-openers, plastic food containers, Zip-lock bags, pet food & supplies, water, and Gatorade.
From time to time, scam artists will send out emails or texts that appear to be from our church and pastors. We apologize for this but many churches and pastors are having this happen to them. Our church and staff will never approach any church members for special favors, gift cards, or money. Please do not respond to those emails or text messages.

Church Conference date set for disaffiliation vote
On Monday, January 23, the MUMC Administrative Council voted to hold a vote of church membership regarding disaffiliation from the United Methodist Church. The decision to move forward in the discernment process for disaffiliation followed the announcement of the results of the church-wide pulse survey that was administered the week of January 15 – 22.
