All of Who We Are

Dear Church Family,

I want to thank you for your generous support of the Wesley Foundation at the University of Central Florida. We collected $875 in our Voice of Hope (VOH) baskets last weekend, which will be used to help fund the ministry led by Pastor Erwin Lopez. I am proud of our congregation’s willingness to give to causes outside of our church. That said, the VOH basket this weekend will go to support UMCOR, our United Methodist Committee on Relief. I invite you to give generously to UMCOR and be confident that every penny of what you give will go to directly to the work of disaster relief. 

I also want to thank those of you who have donated candy for Trunk or Treat and/or signed up to help us with the event. We still need more trunks in order to make Trunk or Treat a success, so please sign up if you haven’t done so already! Halloween is just a few days away, and we need as many people as possible!

This weekend, we start a brand-new message series called “All of Who We Are.” The series will explore our tendency, as Christians, to hold back once we make a commitment to Jesus. However, Jesus doesn’t want us to hold back. Instead, he wants us to give our whole selves over to him, including our time, treasure, talents and trust (what we’re calling “the 4 T’s”). Join us at one of our weekend services as we explore the first of these T’s, which is time! In addition, we’re going to hand out a packet of information that will go directly with the series. Make sure to read this information and prayerfully consider how God might be calling you to give all of who you are to the ministry of Community of Faith over the next year.

See you this weekend! 

Blessings,

Chris
