Covid 19 Update

In order for us to safely have services in our church building, we must take added precautions.  Ways that we are taking proactive safety measures include, but are not limited to: having ushers seat you at safe distances, sanitizing bathroom stalls after each use, mounting hand sanitizer dispensers on bathroom walls, etc.  We urge you to be vigilant as well by: staying home if feeling unwell, properly wearing your face mask at all times, maintaining social distance of at least 6 ft apart, and frequently   sanitizing your hands.  This is an ever-changing situation and we will   continue to implement safety precautions as they pertain to our congregation. Remember, we are not just working to keep ourselves safe, but others also.  Following the safety guidelines put forth by the CDC as well as our UMC conference is how we can show love to our neighbor during this trying time.  

Due to the Conference Guidelines and current spike in Covid 19 Cases, FUMC Reopening Task Force has decided to continue postponing the regular local group meetings at the church until further notice. Approved Groups can still hold their meetings outside under at the Pavilion using social distancing guidelines.


As a prior military wife and mother of 3, it gave me opportunity to live in some great places and work for in many different fields as civilian gov't employee for 13 years; logistics, purchasing, office manager, to name a few. The last assignment moved us to Key West, were I enjoyed lots of fishing. Moving Northward, I landed in Charlotte County in 2005, went back to College and got degrees in Homeland Security, Public Safety Administration and Business. After my second child graduated and moved, on, it was time again to move more Northward, and I moved to Gilchrist County in late 2017, a dream fulfilled after over 5 years of planning. I starting working at FUMC in August 2018 and have enjoyed the church and the wonderful people who are there. Thriving on always trying to learn new things, I currently keep very busy learning about nature, trials and triumphs of establishing a small hobby farm and future Christmas Tree farm.
