The Future of Fort Myers

Last Saturday I spent time in Fort Myers dreaming about future ministry post-hurricane Ian with people from the PCUSA and ELCA churches on Fort Myers Beach. All three island churches were heavily damaged and all three churches/denominations are weighing their options about what the future looks like and if we could/should work together on a community church effort. It was a good first day of dreaming together. 

Melana, the Presbyterian superintendent; Khadeer the Lutheran superintendent and me.

This is where the three congregations are located on the island. 

The Presbyterian church currently. 

The Methodist church and parsonage currently. 

And the Lutheran church currently. 

It will be interesting to see what might develop in the future.
