ON MISSION TOGETHER
The mission of the Church throughout history has been to go into all the world and make disciples of Jesus Christ. At St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church this is our mission today. As we head into 2019 we want to be on mission together–ensuring that everything we do leads all people to experience God’s grace through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Paul said that our unique talents, passions, and personalities are gifts of God’s grace that are drawn together in the body of Christ to accomplish God’s purpose in this world (1 Corinthians 12:1-12). Discover or re-discover your spiritual gifts by taking a Spiritual Gifts test.
Prayer allows us to communicate with God and participate in His works. Prayer not only strengthens our relationship with God, but when we pray with other believers, prayer also strengthens the bonds between fellow Christians. We send out weekly prayer list emails. Join us in praying for these individuals by signing up to receive our prayer list. We also encourage you to submit a prayer request anytime you are in need so that we can lift you up in prayer by name.
Your story can make a difference in the lives of others—so tell it! The greatest thing you can do in this life is lead someone to Christ. God wants to use you. God can use you. You may feel ill equipped, but remember, it’s not based on your personality, how well you articulate or how many Bible verses you know. Rather, it’s about your willingness to say, “Lord, here I am. Send me.” If you feel led to share your testimony with us, contact us and we will set up a time to record your story.
Time. Talents. Service. Prayer. Story. Resources.
We are called to give generously of our time, talents, service, prayer, story and resources. "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." [2 Corinthians 9:6-8]
