2 X 4's for Hope Helping Families in Need


Finance Letter of 03-21-2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


     As I reflect upon this time in the history of the world, it truly is unprecedented, in our lifetime anyway. We do need to heed the call to care for self and others during this health crisis, yet at the same time we must not live in fear. The apostle Paul wrote to the saints in Philippi these words of encouragement, “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7, NRSV). What a gift it is to know that God hears our prayers and that He is present with us in the midst of every season of life. I want to encourage each of you to pray each day at noon for those who are ill, those who are alone, and as the Holy Spirit leads you. We know there is significant power in prayer.


     We have been encouraged to refrain from gathering in worship and small groups until the end of March. We are complying with that request. Even though we cannot gather together, we are the church and God will see us through, He is faithful. I want to thank you for your faithfulness as well. I would like to encourage each of you to continue your faithful stewardship. By continuing to send in your tithe and offerings we will be able to continue the vital ministry God has called us to be a part of. Thank you for your continued support.


     My prayer is that the COVID-19 virus quickly comes to an end. I am praying for you, your family, and friends, that you will each stay healthy during this season. May you have shalom; the peace that comes straight from God.

    
Blessings,
   Pastor Carol  

 


Cancellation of Church Services and events

We have received word from Bishop Frank Beard that due to the COVID-19 virus all worship services and gatherings have been suspended until further notice.

Please continue to check this website and/or our Facebook page often for updates.

For information or questions, please contact the Church Office (217) 223-6062.

We now have Pre-Recorded video worship services that can be viewed via You Tube.  There are links to these videos on this webpage and the UUMC Facebook Page.

There will be those in the church who will want to continue to support the church financially, and for that we are eternally grateful. We have provided the opportunity for people to have a check written directly to the church from their bank account and there are a few who have chosen to do that. However many prefer to write a check or contribute cash. It will be important to offer an opportunity for people to continue to give during this time when we can't worship together in person. To learn more about this contact the church office.

Blessings,
Pastor Carol
