Time to exercise your gifts Beginning Sunday, May 16th, Killearn UMC will have VIP (Visitor-In-Person) stations outside both narthexes. We'd like a team of 12 KUMC Ambassadors to welcome visitors, provide an orientation to our campus and opportunities, and just plain BE FRIENDLY (Greeters & Ushers can participate) at each service.
