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. Being on mission together means striving to reach new people in new places in new ways. Being on mission together means building relationships with people in the community who have yet to experience God’s grace. Being on mission together means seeking to meet the needs of the communities we serve. The transformation of the world is far too big a task for any of us–but together we can do more and lead more and more people to experience the extravagant grace of God.
In 2018, your support allowed us to reach over 500 people each week in worship; welcome 28 professing new members to the church; confirm 10 students to live as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ; celebrate the baptism of 13 children and adults; provide Bibles for over 100 preschool children; foster countless Christian relationships through Life Groups and fellowship events; host Vacation Bible School for over 150 children; provide a variety of weekly opportunities for people in all stages of their faith to grow in their relationship with Christ; serve food to over 500 families through the Food Pantry and Meals on Wheels; provide shelter, meals and supportive services to six families through Family Promise; and together we can so much more.
