Stories of hope
YOUR GIVING MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Each month, almost every week in fact, someone comes from the congregation or community seeking God’s help through our church family. In the last month alone we helped people with food, transportation, spiritual counsel, referral to county resources, help with the loss of a loved one, and in getting medication.
Thank you to those who offer financial support for vital, life changing ministry.
I need to take this opportunity to THANK the people of Chirst Church. May God's grace continue to bless you. This will be my last Sunday attending unless something dramatic changes with my job. It has been a warming and gracious experience for me with you over this last year. Please continue to reach out to the community and push yourself a little bit. Thank you for everything! A special thanks for Dennis & Judy.
LENTEN FOOD PANTRY COLLECTION
March & April 2014
Thank you to everyone who donated food for the food pantry during the Lenten season. 962 pounds of food was delivered to the Holy Communion Food Pantry. Thanks to your generous support, we set a record for the amount of food donated by Christ Church in one delivery. Praise be to God for the blessing this will bring to hungry people.
GENERAL BOARD OF GLOBAL MINISTRIES (GBGM)
One of the great resources of the United Methodist Church is The General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM), the mission agency of The United Methodist Church.
When we support the GBGM through our apportionment giving and The Advance, we support missionaries and projects around the world that bring the love of God to those who are suffering from the effects of poverty and disease.
The work that United Methodist missionaries do to alleviate suffering, build and strengthen Christian communities, and seek justice and peace is transformational. It is transformational not only for those who serve, but also for the missionaries themselves.
Thank you for undergirding the work of United Methodist missionaries. These ministries are made possible by the generosity of United Methodists churches that pay 100% of their apportionments. With your supports, they can truly bring the light of Christ to those in need.
God is at work in this church and through its people. Thank you to those who offer financial support for vital, life changing ministry.
