We are saddened to announce the death of Norma Grisamore, longtime member of Mattoon First United Methodist Church.
Norma had been ill and struggled with many health problems the past several years. She recently had a stroke and passed away yesterday a little after noon at Sarah Bush hospital.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions we will hold her funeral at Dodge Cemetery next Friday at 1 p.m., with Ron Dickinson and myself presiding.
The moving dates for the pastoral transition have been planned as follows:
June 10: Smiths move out of the parsonage
June 16: Krosts move in
Starting on June 10, my remaining vacation will take me through to the end of the month. Todd Krost will officially become the new pastor of First United Methodist Church on July 1, 2020. Jordan Thomas will provide pastoral leadership in the 20 day interim period.
