Fall Stewardship Campaign

October 2021

During October we have the opportunity to express our faith and share God's abundant blessings by showing our extravagant generosity by making a pledge to the 2022 General Fund budget. We will also take steps to conclude our capital campaign and to make sure all of the church renovations which have recently been completed are fully funded. On October 31st (Commitment Sunday), in our woship services, we will be committing ourselves to the transformational work and at the end of worship we will have time to turn in our commitment cards for 2022. If you are unable to attend or would like to submit your commitment in a digital format, we encourage you to click on the link below and express your partnership with Christ and the Church for the coming year of mission and ministry!

The Stegall Seminary Scholarship Endowment Foundation invites you to an evening with Randall Atcheson in the sanctuary of FUMC Prattville!

Everyone is invited to join us for this inspiring and entertaining performance!

Randall Atcheson.jpg

Randall was reared in neighboring Chilton County where he has been named one of the most talented and renowned musicians from the state of Alabama. Randall attended Clanton public schools and is a 1970 graduate of Chilton County High School. He graduated from Samford University and then spent the next ten years at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City receiving simultaneous bachelor and master’s degrees in piano and organ. 

During the concert, he will be performing a variety of selections beginning with classical, popular, sacred and patriotic music. No tickets are required but attendees may contribute to the Stegall Seminary Scholarship Foundation to support seminary students and Course of Study students from the Alabama-West Florida Conference, while also supporting theology students abroad at Wesley College in Tanzania.

Randall has performed at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and Blenheim Palace in England. He has made much-acclaimed piano debuts in Australia, Jerusalem, Brazil, Germany, the Czech Republic and Italy. He has performed for three Presidents and at one Presidential Inauguration. Other performances were at the Gala of Stars from Radio City Music Hall, Paramount Studios in Los Angeles and he has been featured on “Fox & Friends” several times. Randall has also recorded 16 albums. He and his wife Laurie live in Greenwich, CT where he has made his home since he started his studies at Juilliard in 1971.
