AS OF MAY 6, 2019 THERE WILL NO LONGER BE A SOUTHWEST DISTRICT OR DISTRICT OFFICE IN ATLANTIC. We are now in the Northwest/Southwest District with district offices being located in Storm Lake, Iowa. Terra Admundson will continue to be our District Superintendent but her office will be a virtual office located in her home. All these changes are being made as our Conference budget needs downsizing. I am grateful and thankful that the congregation at Oakland UMC continues to pay your apportionments.

Having been a harder winter than we have experienced the last few years and you may have missed worship on Sunday we want to remind you to consider the possibility that offerings may have suffered. The ministry of the church continues regardless of weather conditions and the expenses of maintaining the building will increase. Thank you for your faithful support of the ministry of Oakland United Methodist Church.
