How can you help?
June 16 was a very special day for our congregation. Do you enjoy coming to the musicals, dinners, services,senior events, and Bible studies we have here on a regular basis? Is your grandchild, child, or neighbor in First Kids, Scouts, Children’s Choirs, Youth Group? The list of ministries through which we are blessed is HUGE! This modest list doesn’t begin to describe all the wonderful things that happen on the campus of First UMC, Sweetwater. That’s the good news. YOU Have the opportunity to help all these ministries thrive and continue to grow into even more ways that we serve the Kingdom in this place by making a PLEDGE to help reduce the principal on our facilities loan. Gifts of all sizes are welcome and needed, and YOUR gift will make a difference in 2 important ways. Whatever amount you pledge will reduce the principal of the loan. THEN, the added bonus is that reduces what we will have to pay in interest over the life of the loan, so you are making a difference not once but TWICE!
Be a part as we celebrate our promise to contribute to the HOPE and FUTURE that God has planned for this very special congregation! Please pray about your role in this important initiative. If you couldn’t be here on June 16, complete your pledge and bring it to the church office or to a worship service, or mail it to church at 509 Church Street, Sweetwater, 37874. Together we can all make a BIG difference! Jeremiah 29:11
