Missio Dei – God’s Work

Every week our church bulletin features the Vision & Mission of the First United Methodist Church.

“Shining the Light of God’s Love”

through Inspiring Worship-Personal Growth-Intentional Outreach

But as you have noticed in the picture above – there appears to be a piece missing – is it you? God calls each of us to worship Him, grow in Him, and reach out to our community and the world in His name!

I wish to invite the whole church to look upon 2019 as the year of:

In discussion with Pastor Brian and Assistant Pastor Rad, there are four areas of specific mission concentration for the Mission Team this year: The Florida United Methodist Children’s Home – Northport School – Methodists United in Prayer (formerly Cuba/Florida Covenant) – Haiti Mission (Christian Alliance School). This does not diminish the many other ministries in our church outreaches; but to narrow the focus of mission

concentration to ensure we are meeting our ministry obligations to these partnerships.

There are many opportunities and possibilities to help the Missions Team – pray, attend a retreat that is being planned, become a member of the Missions Team , serve on one of our

subcommittees, provide items or funds for planned outreaches, brainstorm, make phone calls, write letters of encouragement, etc. These are just a few of the ways you can help in doing God’s Work with Our Hands!
