FMUU Ministerial News

We are excited to announce that we have hired Rev. Edith Love to be our minister (on a half-time basis), starting in September.  She will partly serve us long-distance from her home in Memphis.  But she will also make periodic trips here to be with us in person.  Her first in-person visit is now set for early September.  Plans are still forming, but expect an open house reception for her on Saturday, September 10, in the afternoon.  She will be leading our September 11th church service, and we will have a potluck afterward.  Help us welcome Rev. Edie!

Please contact with any questions.
