 Hi Folks,

I pray all is well with you. Below is a link to thour "Process" for making the decision to remain with or to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church

The decision for FUMCTavares to remain in the UMC or to disaffiliate from the UMC will be tough and painful. I wish it were otherwise. Yet, we must prayerfully discern God's future for our church.


Please check this page often. I will keep you up to date on the process. More importantly, I want to point us to seek Jesus, to cast our cares on him and trust in his leading. 

Your friend on the journey, 

Pastor Mike

This is the Presentation schedule as well as Q & A meetings and our Church Conference.
