Dear Church family,
As we swing into this year, I want to thank you for your faithful giving. Thanks to you, we were able to pay 100% of our insurance for the year and 100% of our Apportionments (the expenditures we United Methodist share as a denomination), which we have not done in over 10 years.
Since January, our church has added 13 new members and 7 Confirmands. We have helped Habitat for Humanity, the Heifer Project, Explore Foster Miami Ministries. P.A.V.E in Jamaica and supported several local feeding programs. For example, we provided meals for 50 migrant families for Easter this year. We also hosted an out-of-this-world Vintage Car Show where we raised funds for local Veterans. This annual event is free, family-oriented, and open to the public. This year, we had over 1000 attendees. In addition, our church responds to natural and human-caused disasters year around through the UMCOR Disaster Relief Fund.
Furthermore, our campus has also been blessed by the addition of two incredible community-building organizations, "Wellspring Christian Counseling Center," which has offices in the "Sanctuary House" on 104th street, and (NCF) National Christian Foundation in room 20. We are blessed to partner with both of these amazing organizations.
We have done all this while sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with our friends and neighbors. With God's help, I feel this is just the beginning of what we can do this year.
In His Service,
Our Doors are always open to God's people!
