Communications Update

As we continue to live into our new vision launched this January, we understand that strengthened communication and collaboration across our church family is critical. Our new structure with the pillars and long-range planning goals are helping us achieve those goals.

Over the past several months, we have made several shifts and enhancements to our communication as a church family. Many of these changes involved behind-the-scenes processes, parameters, guidelines, etc. However, we want to share a few of the more visible updates:

  • Our Thursday at Three newsletter continues to be a tool for our church family to learn of the work that God is doing here at FUMCWP. This newsletter shares updates from pillars and ministries – but also sheds light into some of the strategic shifts and movements of our church family. Make sure to subscribe here.
  • We have developed a Marketing and Communications lay team that is actively involved in the communications needs of each of our ministries. With over 30 ministries and administrative teams, empowering our lay leaders to use the communications talents and gifts that God has given them is just one of the ways we are strengthening the communications work of this church. If you are interested in becoming a Communications Ambassador and joining our lay team, please email Sarah Skidmore, Director of Marketing and Communications, at
  • You may have noticed the screen in the gym lobby. We are putting more of those screens up around our campus to keep everyone up to date on church happenings and relevant information. Look for more screens to be on campus this summer!

We have several more exciting communications updates coming this summer and fall through the work of the Marketing and Communications Lay Team (aka The Coalition for Marketing and Communications). Our efforts are strategically directed towards living into our vision and aiding all our ministries, leadership, and laity in embracing this new vision for our church.
