One year anniversary of the tornado that struck Newnan

Friday, March 25th will mark the one year anniversary of the F4 tornado that struck Newnan. After a year, the community continues to rebuild with most people now back in their homes.

What remains is a considerable amount of clean up work and debris removal. Last week an UMCOR Team responded to assist with this work. The team, led by Alpharetta FUMC, included participants from 6 other churches, including Julia Murray and Jerry Melton from Midway FUMC.

The work days were long, but very rewarding as we served God by serving others. We anticipate additional work in Newnan in the future and likely will see an active spring storm season. I will continue to monitor and communicate opportunities to serve others and respond to community needs.
