As you can see, we are coming back in-person as a church! Even more important is the beautiful spirit in our congregation right now! We are moving forward, renewing, offering new initiatives, and I believe that our church will finish very strong in this most bizarre year! Thanks for all you are doing in being the church at its’ best right now! Shalimar UMC has loyalty and resolve! And best of all, we serve an AWESOME GOD who is reshaping us even as I write this to be a stronger church for HIM!
