Capital Funds Debt Reduction 3 year Campaign


Hope and a Future Campaign 2013-2016

How can you help? It’s always a good time to join in! 

June 16, 2013 was a very special day for our congregation. The opportunity to continue the wonderful ministries of this congregation do not end on that day, but are available to you at any time.  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. You may not have even attended church here in 2013, but the need is great to continue to reduce the loan on our facility. The sooner it is paid, the sooner those gifts can be used to increase our outreach and ministries. Can you envision the day when we have a Director of Christian Education on staff to coordinate all our ministries and assist the age level groups in programming? Can you imagine the joy of having a host or hostess who cooks delicious meals for Wednesday Night Connection? Can you dream about the satisfaction that would come from having a role in temporary housing for displaced individuals and families in our town? Those are only a few things that can happen in the future when this debt is further reduced and eliminated.  We have made tremendous progress in the last 3 years. Join in the HOPE AND A FUTURE that God has envisioned for this faith community.
