August 13: Update From Pastor Kenny Ott on transitioning to a Single Board Model

Click Here to listen as Pastor Kenny Ott shares an update on the proposal to move to a Single Board Model.

Canton First United Methodist Church is in the proposal process for transitioning to a Single Board Model (SBM). A Single Board Model (also known as the Single Accountable Board Model of Governance) consolidates the administrative committees of the church into a simplified and more efficient organizational structure to support alignment of the Canton First UMC Mission & Vision and to drive our missional focus in reaching new disciples for Jesus Christ.

You can learn more about the proposal and view critical questions here: Transitioning to a Single Board Model

Upcoming SBM Proposal Important Dates:

August 22 | 12:15 PM | Congregation Listening Session | Sanctuary
August 25 | 6:00 PM | Congregation Listening Session
September 26 | 12:15 PM | Church Conference | Sanctuary

 July 29: Updated Covid-19 Safety Precautions

In the CDC’s latest guidance, recommendations have been added for face coverings in public indoor settings​, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons. Go here to learn more: Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People | CDC
It is important to remember that each person is responsible for making decisions to protect his/her own personal health and wellbeing. Please be considerate of our brothers and sisters in Christ who wear face coverings ​and those who choose not to wear one. We will continue to ensure that you and your family will have a clean and sanitized environment for worship. ​Hand sanitizing stations ​and face masks will continue to be available at all entrances. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.
