happening around the church as we live into our story!

Our congregation is in the midst of some incredible steps toward the vision God has given us to be connected to God, one another and the community. We anticipate June coming with a new pastoral team and a new leadership structure that will carry us forward. The teams are almost complete and actively working to evaluate and develop ministries that meet God’s call on our church in Decatur. Please pray for our new leadership as we live into the Story being written for Decatur First UMC.
