Dear Grace-Filled Family,
I trust this message finds you well. I'm writing in follow-up to my Sunday sermon, the fourth and final one in our "Together on Mission" series, in which we reflected deeply on the power of stewardship, sacrificial love, and the transformative miracles that can happen when we offer what we have.
During the sermon, I extended an invitation to you and all members of our church family to make a pledge to support mission and ministry at Memorial in 2024. If you were not present on Commitment Sunday or if you've not yet had the chance to make your pledge, I want to remind you that it's never too late to do that.
Your pledge is not merely about the upkeep of buildings and property. It's about empowering us to continue making a difference in our community and across the world, as we stay together on mission. From feeding the underfed locally to visiting the sick and lonely of our community, your pledge enables us to continue this valuable work.
Additionally, your pledge is a crucial tool in our budget setting process for 2024. Your responses help us to effectively plan and allocate resources where they are most needed, ensuring that our mission remains robust and impactful.
Please remember, no pledge is too small. As we learnt from the little boy in John's Gospel, when we offer what we have, Jesus can do amazing things with it.
You can make your pledge at any time in the coming weeks. Pledge cards are available in the church office and in both worship spaces on our campus. Alternatively, you can also make a digital pledge online at our church website: www.mumconline.com/give.
Thank you for your continued faith, love, and commitment to our church. We are truly grateful for your willingness to join in on this mission, walking in Christ's ways, making a difference in the world.
