Message from Rev Herb Taylor
Hello from Herb,
You are invited to be a part of our mission trip to Puerto Rico (in January) and to Maine (this Saturday). When a church takes part in a mission trip only a small number of people are able to actually go, but there is no limit to the number that can get involved. In fact, each person within the church family has a role to play to make the trip successful.
First and foremost, we need everyone to share in prayer together. This is an experience of mutuality between the churches involved. So, as we go to the Iglesia de Metodista in Garrochales, Puerto Rico (in the north central part of the island, a little more than an hour west of San Juan) and to Calvary UMC in Lewiston, Maine, we hope you will pray for each of these churches and the communities they serve, just as they will be praying for our church. We also hope that you will join those going in learning about each of these communities (one still in the midst of re-building from Hurricane Maria and the other in the midst of an old mill city, but both suffering through economic challenges).
Second, we hope that you will financially support these mission projects (as well as supporting all the ways we do mission and outreach as a church locally). Giving through our church to support these mission projects ensure that 100% of your giving will go to make a difference in people’s lives. Also, this giving is magnified far beyond the actual projects. Your giving shares a love and hope that is powerfully felt by these churches which we will help. The relationships built between these churches will bring transformation for all involved.
Therefore, please consider committing yourself to being involved in these mission projects. Please support the fundraising auction we are planning for Sunday, Oct. 28th after church during coffee hour, as well as a luncheon after church on Sunday, Dec. 2nd. And of course, you can give directly to provide for these mission projects – write a check or give online and identify that it is for the Mission Projects. As United Methodists, our prayers, presence, witness, gifts and service, define how we do ministry together – and this is true for mission projects as well.
See you in church.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Herb Taylor
