On Sunday, Pastor David led an open dialogue between services to discuss the Reeves property. During the discussion, he expressed both thankfulness and hopefulness of our continued ministry in the city. The room was filled with laity who were curious and, more importantly, encouraged about the expanded possibilities for ministry
that Reeves offers. In this interactive format, key questions were asked regarding the community, diversity, and funding.
The Reeves property is uniquely positioned next to the Orlando Gifted Academy, in an up-and-coming neighborhood. With financial support from the Florida Annual Conference, we forecast minimal start-up costs. FUMCWP Leadership plans a slow expansion of ministry at Reeves as we hold tightly to our call to be stewards of our resources.
Later this month our church family will be voting to determine whether the Reeves property is a fit for our mission. If you missed the open dialogue or any of our off-site and home meetings this summer, you are in luck! This Sunday we are hosting an Open House at Reeves from 11:00am to 2:00pm. We invite all of our members to walk the property, pray for discernment, and explore some of the expanded possibilities for ministry. Then, we invite you to join us the following Sunday (September 23rd at 12:15pm) to vote at our Church Conference as we seek a decision on the adoption of Reeves.
