Nurture

1/1

A Special from from our Senior Pastor

With two campuses on either side of I-20,
Greensboro First United Methodist Church is
strategically located for ministry and mission
here in Georgia’s Lake Country. In fact, I
believe our church is uniquely positioned to
carry out God’s mission of “Making Disciples of
Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the
World.” I also believe we will be able to grow
our church’s disciple-making ministries
significantly once our remaining building debt
is paid.


That’s why we’re launching a capital campaign
called “Imagine NOW.” We’re inviting everyone
to “Imagine NOW” what God can do when
every dollar given by our congregation is
dedicated to growing our church’s ministries of
Nurture, Outreach, and Witness (NOW),
instead of making mortgage payments.


Imagine NOW! Imagine what Greensboro First
UMC could do in ministry and mission NOW, if
we were no longer burdened by building debt.
Without mortgage payments built into our
budget, our congregation’s generosity could
focus on funding ministries of Nurture,
Outreach, and Witness that will make a
difference for Jesus Christ.


Imagine how we could utilize our resources to
Nurture the spiritual life of children, youth,
families, and adults of all ages!

Imagine new Outreach ministries that would
share God’s love with others here in our local
community and to the very ends of the earth!
Imagine how being freed of our building debt
would empower our congregation to Witness in
new and creative ways to God’s great love for
all people in Jesus Christ!


Please note that this special “Imagine NOW”
capital campaign is separate from our annual
stewardship drive that supports Greensboro
First UMC’s regular operating budget, which
includes funding for all of our church’s current
ministries. We’re inviting everyone to give
sacrificially to this special capital campaign –
beyond your regular giving to our church’s
annual operating budget – with the hope of
retiring our mortgage debt within the next two
years.


I encourage you to pray about the commitment
God is calling you to make to this special effort,
and to begin to “Imagine NOW” what God will
do through Greensboro First UMC. I also
encourage you to read the following questions
and answers, and to contact me or anyone on
our capital campaign team if you have further
questions.

 

In Christ’s love,
Rev. Mike Morgan
Senior Pastor
