The photo shown above depicts Pastor Bob Bushong of Peace UMC hugging Alva "Butchie" Inman, who is the mother of the current lead pastor of Peace UMC, Pastor LeeAnn Inman. Click the photo above to see an enlargement of the photo. This photo appeared in the Orlando Sentinel on December 22, 1991, as part of an article written by Adelle M. Banks of the Sentinel Staff entitled Religions's changing face: More churches, megachurches. It was taken during the first service of Peace UMC, held on September 8, 1991, at Southchase Theater. How's THAT for a real "Circle of Life" moment?

To quote the article, "Using marketing strategies that they never learned in a seminary, these congregation creators draw from an area with massive numbers of "unchurched" people. Armed with the knowledge that at least 70 percent of Florida's residents don't belong to a local church, they have found street directories their most important reference after the Bible." Butchie Inman was part of a group of people who called Hunter's Creek residents informing them of our impending first service.

Click on each of the scans at the left to view PDFs of some of the material sent to our Hunter's Creek neighbors to promote our upcoming first service.

Also included is a comment written at the time by an early church member who recorded her impressions of that first service.

For those of you who were there as well, we would love to hear about your impression of the event to post as a comment below. Send your commnets to Larry the Lay Leader!
