Dear Elizabeth Lee UMC Family,
My family and I are so excited to be joining the Elizabeth Lee family as we move to Chickamauga. In the time we’ve had to get to know this church and community from a distance we have been so impressed with the wonderful, transformational ministry you are doing both in the church and out in the community. Elizabeth Lee has a long history of bearing much fruit for God’s Kingdom and has an equally bright future filled with promise. Being part of a thriving congregation and community is the perfect way to raise a family and Stephanie and I are so thankful for our family to be able to call Elizabeth Lee and Chickamauga home.
I look forward to getting to know each of you individually in the days and weeks ahead. We each have stories of how God’s grace has nurtured our faith and led us to this point in our lives, and I can’t wait to hear your story. This church also has a story that is a testament to God’s faithfulness, and I can’t wait to learn its story through each of you as well. To help you get to know me and my story and to help me to get to know you, your story, and the church’s story, I plan to hold a Town Hall meeting in July where you can literally ask me anything. Feel free to ask me questions about myself, my family, the church, or anything else that’s on your mind. This event is scheduled for Sunday, July 22nd at 6:30PM in the Fellowship Hall.
This summer is going to be an exciting one as God does so much in and through this church. From Vacation Bible School to mission trips to the Summer Feeding Program and so much more, I am both impressed and excited about what the future holds. So many of you have been so gracious in welcoming our family into your family. We are most thankful. I hope you’ll be in prayer for the Elizabeth Lee UMC family as we get to know one another and strive to love God and love others just like Jesus.
Zach, Stephanie, Luke (4), and Cara (2) Fitzpatrick
