God has given us a great gift: one another! Together, we answer God's call to ministry. We build ministry together! And you have an opportunity to build ministry with your brothers and sisters in Christ in 2018
On Sunday, October 22rd, we will celebrate a very important day in the life of our church: Building Ministry Together Stewardship Sunday. During our worship service on that day, we will gather as members of Lyons First United Methodist Church and make our personal, financial commitments to our ministry vision for our congregation in 2018.
Why give? Why pledge? Because it is important to your personal faith. It is important to our mission. And it helps your church prepare for ministry. Every year, our church operates and conducts ministry through your generous tithes and offerings. This year alone, we estimate spending $366,000 to minister to children and youth, provide for our amazing ministry staff, reach out to our community, maintain our facilities, and minister to one another. In 2018, we are focusing on investing in children and youth, including taking extraordinary steps to hire a full-time youth director!
Your financial commitment help us determine how we will fund our ministry and mission over the next year. It’s time to Build Ministry Together! I want to thank you in advance for sharing your gifts of love to help others Love God, Love Each Other, and Love Outside the Walls! May God bless you as you consider your commitment.
