August has begun and things begin to settle down in our lives, or "back to normal," as some say. What does that mean for you?

I am back from taking some time away and I am very thankful to the church for helping me to take some time. I want to thank Dale, Matt and Macon for filling the pulpit while I was away.

What does the fall and winter hold for us at FUMC Tallassee? I pray that you are spending time in Bible study and prayer as we get direction from God about the ministries that we need to be involved in for the rest of the year.

I have been praying and studying and getting excited about what God has in store for us at FUMC Tallassee. Let us stay focused and keep cool as life re-turns to normal.

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!
