The Good Word

Coordinator: Chris Kimball-Peterson

The Good Word is a ministry of our church, which was started by Rev. Bill Gottshalk-Fielding during his time as our pastor (in the 90s).  Jan Fergus was the first, until two and a half years ago, coordinator of this special ministry.

This is a recorded daily devotion; which people can hear by calling 387-8202. We are now listed in the phone directory under the United Methodist Church of Trumansburg.

About 11 volunteers record either a prayer or a devotion per week. Some record different messages every day or sometimes every other day, whatever they can fit in their schedule. This is a 24/7 daily ministry that is for everyone in our community and further.

The volunteers for the Good Word are: Eileen Collins,  Mary Louise Gallagher, Cheryl Hine, Connie Ike,  Susan Mccormick, Sylvia Mitchell, and Ellen Mitterer. New volunteers are always needed. The more people that are willing to help with the Good Word, then the rotation for all of the volunteers is longer.

The purpose of the Good Word is to provide a “Spiritual Uplift” you might be stressed out, feeling a bit lonely, depressed or just want to start your day with a prayer/devotion.

Anyone interested in trying out the Good Word, listen to it for a couple of weeks, and if you are interested, contact Chris at 387-5486 or e-mail her at
