At the current moment, Life Together is taking on a whole new meaning, understanding, and reality with our need to physically distance ourselves, in order to protect one another. But this does not mean we disconnect from one another! In fact, just the opposite is true. At this moment in time, we need to ensure we are more connected to one another than perhaps ever before. As I have shared many times in past sermons, I believe God has created us (wired us) to be in relationships with one another. In other words, to do Life Together.
With the current reality, our Leadership Board is working on a new and vital ministry to ensure that we remain connected. The Leadership Board is putting into place actions that will reach out to every single person/family that calls MUMC home. We want to touch base with everyone, personally, to perhaps address any needs the church might help with, but most importantly to let everyone know that not a single one of us is alone in this current reality. The goal is to quickly put into place "Shepherds" and "Flocks". The shepherds will be touching base with their flock on a regular basis. Likewise, your shepherd will be your main connect person within the church if ANY need arises in your life.
If you might be willing and able to help the Leadership Board in this effort, by being a shepherd, please send me an email (
