A message from our District Superintendent
Dear Members and Friends of Belmont Heights United Methodist Church:
It is my joy to announce that Bishop Grant J. Hagiya will appoint Pastor Bomi Kim as your new pastor beginning July 1st. Pastor Bomi is a Provisional Elder who is currently serving in the North Georgia Annual Conference. She earned her Master of Divinity degree at the Claremont School of Theology in 2017 and served at the Walnut UMC as a pastoral intern before relocating to the Atlanta area. Your Staff-Parish Relations Committee met with Pastor Bomi earlier this week and affirmed her gifts for ministry as they relate to Belmont Heights UMC. I am excited for this new start in ministry for both the congregation and Pastor Bomi, spouse Brian and son Jun, and I will work with your SPRC between in the coming months to insure that this transition is a smooth and positive one. My sincere thanks go to Joey Villaseca, Kathleen Rockmore and the Staff-Parish Relations Committee for guiding you through this time of transition in your congregational life and pastoral leadership. We move forward with God into a new and exciting day for the life and ministry of Belmont Heights United Methodist Church!
Grace and Peace, Reverend Mark M. Nakagawa West District Superintendent
United Methodists and others wishing to provide humanitarian assistance to the Ukrainian people in the wake of the Russian invasion of their country may contribute to Advance #982450, UMCOR International Disaster Response and Recovery. This fund will provide direct assistance to those in Ukraine as well as assistance to Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring countries.
Gifts to support the people of Ukraine can be made in the following ways:
- Online at https://umcmission.org/advance-project/982450
- By toll-free telephone: 888-252-6174
- By check with “Advance #982450-Ukraine” written on the memo line, either mailed and addressed to Global Ministries/UMCOR, GPO, P.O. Box 9068, New York, NY, 10087-9068 or given at or through any United Methodist church
One hundred percent of all Advance contributions go to the designated cause.
The United Methodist community in Ukraine, though quite small, is actively engaged in assisting neighbors in need. Global Ministries is in touch with the church’s leadership as well as with church leaders in countries welcoming those who are fleeing from violence in Ukraine.
