Focus on Faith: Rev. Brent McCumons, retired United Methodist pastor

Psalm 107: O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever…

Retired pastor from Midland First United Methodist Church, Rev. Brent McCumons and his wife, Marlene, a teacher, are thankful for the supportive Prairie Cottages community they have found at UMRC’s Chelsea campus:

“As a pastor and former UMRC Board member, Marlene and I always knew we would someday make Chelsea Retirement Community (CRC) our home. When we learned of the new Prairie Cottages project underway, we decided the timing was right.

We wanted to develop a faithful community together, so, as we age, we’ll have that support. It’s comforting for us, and reassuring for our children, to know CRC’s continuum of care is available. Already, I’ve been able to take advantage of physical therapy here, and the coming McMullen Wellness and Aquatic Center is very exciting!

We are extremely impressed with The Prairie Cottages, including the caring staff and opportunity to choose the design and details we wanted for our cottage.

We are grateful for our many friends here who are former pastors and spouses, and for new friends, too. We love being closer to family and recently hosted our annual Grandkids Camp here in our new home! God is good!”
