University Park United Methodist Lays Off Staff
You get used to hearing about layoffs at tech firms, school districts, and newspapers, among other businesses. I’d never heard of them at a church until yesterday. That’s when University Park United Methodist sent out an email that said the Staff Parish Relations Committee had decided to eliminate three “support positions.”
“These changes will allow us to be more efficient with our budget dollars while giving more laity the opportunity to participate in the daily ministries of the church,” the email said.
