Four existing United Methodist Churches in Newton, Milwaukee, Ransom and Schultzville will officially merge on July 1, 2008. An elected transition team has nominated officers and committees, but a new church name has not yet been decided upon. Members of the existing congregations have the opportunity to share ideas for a new church name at the next two services. Preliminary voting will be conducted on February 3 and a final vote is set for February 17.
