First United Methodist Church

Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors


What is the mission of our church? We have a mission and a vision statement:
          First United Methodist Church, Tallassee is committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ,
          by connecting people to the word of God and engaging them in ministry here and 
          throughout the world.
How are we doing at accomplishing this?  In our daily life, at work, at play, with family, do we look to connect people around us with the word of God by helping them to see it in action?  Do we let our words encourage and engage?

The summer is here and many feel like it is a time to rest and play and, yes, this is true, but let us continue to engage our faith daily with those we meet.  When we believe that our mission and vision for the church is truly a part of us, we will always look for ways to help others know the Savior that we serve and know.

Thanks for being such great witnesses in the world as we do engage others for Christ.

Your Servant in Christ,



We will begin looking at long-range plans for FUMC Tallassee as our first project for the coming year. I am also looking at the shepherding committee—to get it back into action. I am getting really excited about what the education committee is going to do this coming year. I am also thankful for our music program, youth and children’s programs.

I believe it is going to be a great year. We have an amazing staff at FUMC Tallassee who do great minis-try and we also have some of the best volunteers from the congregation. Thanks for all that all of you do for the Church.

We still need volunteers to help this coming year. Some of you may still be wondering how you can help? Or what your gift may be? I have two websites I would like for you to look at that can help you answer those questions. They are:

Please come and talk to me about your results. I would love to help you use your gifts for the Kingdom. This is going to be a great year!
