5 Week Study
A Letter from Our Pastor
As we have been living through what has been a challenging and uncertain 2022, we look to our future and wonder what ministry can look like for the rest of this year and beyond to 2023. We know we need to approach ministry in a new way… in a renewed way. Where this pandemic has caused many problems and challenges for us, it has also presented new exciting opportunities of ministry.
In order to execute the ministry plans we have for the next 24 months it will require each of us to self-examine ourselves and see how God is calling us to greater levels of faith, commitment, and generosity even in midst of uncertainty.
As we now begin to focus on what our ministry plans will be from now through 2023 and how we will resource those plans, we want to introduce to you a generosity emphasis entitled, “Be Renewed”. Our desire is that 100%of the people who call NP First United Methodist their home would respond to Be Renewed.
The vision and ministry of NP First United Methodist is needed more than ever and we need to come together as a church and Be Renewed to make that vision a continued reality. Through this Be Renewed emphasis, you are invited to…
- Ask and yield to God’s will in your life
- Be open to how God will challenge you during this time
- Consider honestly the condition of your heart
- Have open conversations in your household and pray about your generosity
- Be present in worship on May 22, 2022 ready to respond
Over the next five weeks lets contemplate the powerful Bible verses included, exhorting us to trust in the Lord and to honor the Lord with the resources He has provided us. I’m excited to see what God will do in each of us individually and as a body collectively if we will all be open to Be Renewed! Thank you, in advance, for being part of this united movement for Him.
Yours in Christ,
