Rev. Mark and Lynne Kimpland have served the First United Methodist Church and the Fulton community for the last 18 years.
“Our time in Fulton has been a wonderful blessing full of opportunities, challenges and above all, it’s unlimited potential,” Rev. Kimpland said. “We will forever treasure the relationships, ministries and Fulton’s unique sense of community.”
Rev. Kimpland has been reappointed to the Endwell United Methodist Church in Endwell and will begin his ministry July 1.
Lynne Kimpland has directed the children and youth ministries at FFUMC. Their two children, Matthew and Lacey, were very active in sports at G. Ray Bodley High School and currently are third grade teachers. Matthew Kimpland is teaching at Volney Elementary School and Lacey Kimpland is teaching at Johnson City Elementary School.
The Fulton First UMC is inviting the community to the Kimplands’ last worship service Sunday June 23rd at 9:30 a.m. A Farewell Come and Go Reception will be held after worship until 1 p.m.
