Midweek Moment

There are some very exciting things that have been happening around the church this week! The first item has to do with people! We are so thankful to our wonderful staff (especially LuAnn Haywood) and so many gracious volunteers who have pitched in over the last six weeks as we have been searching for a new church Office Manager. We are thrilled to announce that Ellen Lawless has joined the CUMC family as our newest staff member.

Ellen and her husband Greg recently moved to The Villages from Indianapolis, Indiana. Together they have five grown boys and several grandchildren. Ellen brings with her lots of great administrative experience from owning and operating her own business and for the last 11 years she served in various capacities on the administrative staff at East 91st Christian Church in Indianapolis.

Ellen comes to us with incredibly high recommendations and we are so thrilled she is here. We want to encourage you to come by the office when you have a chance and introduce yourself and offer her your personal welcome to the Community UMC family. Let us show her the grace and friendship that is part of our nature. I am sure you will find her warm hospitality and welcoming spirit inviting. Please join us in welcoming Ellen to the Community family. We are so glad that she is here!

The second piece of exciting news has to do with property. The demolition crew has been very busy at our new Rose Avenue piece of property and the house has been completely razed! Work is continuing in clearing the lot and preparing it for its next phase of life as additional church parking.

These are exciting days to be part of the Community UMC family. Please keep up the prayers for our shared ministry.
