A Word From 

Pastor Ron Kitterman

 I have become painfully aware of the realities of my aging. So it is with sadness that I am going to say goodbye to you at the end of September. You and Pastor Lon have been so supportive of my ministry! And while I wish I could continue to be with you, I find the old saying “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” is true for me. I treasure our shared faith journey and will continue to pray for each of you and the faith journey we continue to make in Christ.

                                  –Pastor Ron Kitterman


Pastor Ron has been a wonderful member of our church staff and his ministry in our church and community has been greatly appreciated – our thanks and prayers and best wishes go with him! The Staff/Parish Relations Committee is hard at work to fill this staff position and will keep the congregation informed as this process continues.

Awesome August Annual

Conference Giving Sunday

set for August 24 !!

   At the recommendation of the Mission Committee, the Administrative Council has voted to consolidate most of our UM Conference Special Offerings into one Sunday.

Human Relations Day

Native American Sunday

Peace With Justice Sunday

Disability Awareness Sunday

Christian Education Sunday

United Methodist Student Day

Golden Cross Sunday

Rural Life Sunday

Youth Service Fund

United Methodist Children’s Fund

On August 24 we will combine all these special United Methodist Conference Offerings and give you an opportunity to give to all or any of those you wish to contribute to. The Missions Committee and the Ad Council feel that the consolidation of the special offerings will allow us to better promote the offerings and hopefully have a better response to these special offerings.
