Miracles Everywhere: Our Connection
As United Methodists, we are part of a connectional system. Our local churches support denomination-wide causes and agencies that equip us and send us out to do ministry across the globe. First UMC serves as one of many “mission outposts” that work together for one common mission: “To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
We are one part of a larger mission and ministry that seeks to lead others to the love of Jesus Christ, address missional needs in our communities across the globe, and equip disciples for the ministry of the church. So, when we give to the church through our weekly offering or to special offerings, we are making an impact locally and globally! Our gifts provide a worship space for us in Freehold and help create a worship space in places like Tanzania. Our gifts support our pastor and staff as well as equip new leaders to the church through seminaries, scholarships, and ministry training workshops. Our contributions go forth to fund a vital ministry in Freehold, in Greater New Jersey, and around the world.
So, as we make our pledges before God this morning, may we remember the grand impact our gifts can have in funding God’s miracles everywhere. Thank you for your generosity that will help shape the future of our church, near and far, in the years ahead.
