 The saying of good-bye is hard—so hard, in fact, that many would rather say, “see you later.” We all know what it means, especially in the United Methodist Church—it means change is about to happen.

I have enjoyed my time here as your Pastor! You have made us feel welcome, loved, and accepted. My family has been through some very difficult times and you all have stood by us with your words of encouragement and your signs of love. I want to thank you!

I pray for you all to continue to grow in your love for God and your love for each other. I pray also that you love and help Clint and his family as he leads you all.

One last thing: the past is to be remembered, but not to be wished to go back to, because you can’t. God has a great plan for you all but it lies ahead of you. The past has pushed us forward, as we must continue each day to strive to go; learn from the past but keep pressing on, for the better days are before us. SEE YOU LATER!

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!
