What’s in a Name?
A lot! Our current name doesn’t say anything about who we are or what we do. And so, we are exploring changing our name to something that says something about who we strive to be as a church. We are asking for your input, but we’ve only received a few responses. So we are extending our period of name suggestions. Here are some of the suggested names: Joyful Family; Safe Haven; Amazing Grace; The Refuge; The Well; HopeSong; Safe Journey; and The Journey. After each of these names will appear either the phrase “A United Methodist Church” or “A United Methodist Fellowship.” What we are asking the congregation to do is to email the church with their top three preferences (email@example.com). Please include in your vote whether you prefer UM Church or Fellowship. After the votes are tallied, and if there is a clear preference, we will announce a new name. This is your chance to have a voice on this issue.
