After 4 wonderful years at St. George Island UMC, Pastor Brian Brightly will be retiring for the second time. Pastor Brian has been a blessing to SGI and has been the push of many successful missions that have been achieved in our community.
- A new after school state funded program in Eastpoint with 100 children
- A new family ministry at Hope Park on 159 Bear Creek Rd
- An expanded faith based prison ministry working with churches and over 40 volunteers
- A reading program for 3rd graders in Franklin Schools
- Continuing thrift stores in both SGIUMC and Eastpoint
- A new scout initiative in Eastpoint, Carrabelle, and Apalachicola; registered as Pack #22 with 35 adults and youth.
His participation and dedication to Franklin County will be missed! Rev. Bob Tindale will be the interim pastor for SGIUMC from July to the time the church is able to select a permanent pastor. Rev. Tindale will be a great asset to SGIUMC and is very familiar with the people of Franklin County. We are excited for the change and warmly welcome him to the family.
