Development Committee FUMC Survey
The First United Methodist Church (FUMC) Development Committee was formed by the Leadership Team to identify viable options for the best use of our buildings and to address the long-standing structural financial deficit of the congregation. The Development Committee is seeking input from members, visitors and attendees of FUMC. This is the first step in our journey together to understand what is important to us, and to express our hopes and dreams for the FUMC buildings and gathering spaces and the people we serve today and in the future. This is a journey. We don’t know what the outcome will be. It may be an upgrade to the existing buildings, a complete redevelopment of the half block at 21st and J Street, or a hybrid of multiple concepts. We have a lot of dreaming, listening, praying, and learning to do. Thank you in advance for joining us in this process and sharing your thoughts!
