The Lenten season begins on March 1

Lent is a time of making sacrifices for God but I would also say a time of looking at things to honor God. We have peo-ple every year who give up chocolate, caffeine and other stuff, but what are some ways of honoring God through these sacrifices? Spending more time in prayer and study? Who is someone that I can spend time with and get to know? What do I need to be involved in to help my community?

I believe during this season we can look at the gifts that God has given us and use them to help others know him. I hope the Lenten season is a great one for you as you discov-er or remember ways to honor God with your Time, Talents, Service, Tithes and Witness.

st, Ash Wednesday, as we begin to prepare ourselves for Easter. This is a great time for us to reflect on our lives, to look at what needs to stay and what needs to go.  









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!
