AS OF MAY 6, 2019 THERE HAS NOT BEEN 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 is still our District Superintendent, but her office is a virtual office located in her home. All these changes have been made due to Conference budget downsizing. I am grateful and thankful that the congregation at Oakland UMC continues to pay your apportionments.
