Greetings to our Sunbury UMC Family,
“Now glory be to God, by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of — infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.”Ephesians 3:20
The above passage tells us that we can accomplish far more through the power of God than we could ever accomplish on our own. Come join us in worship at 9:00 and 11:00 through the month of October as we hear about the importance Christian Stewardship plays in our spiritual lives. You see it is through our stewardship that God works to accomplish His plan for us as individuals as well as God’s plan for the church.
I believe God is asking us to Dream Big with God!
Today we worship together each Sunday in this beautiful sacred place, because of the dream that our forefathers had. It was in a barn that the members of Sunbury UMC started to Dream Big with God about the future, and the result … we worship in this beautiful sanctuary.
In recent years, we dreamed big with God to offer a place for the community children and parents to meet, play, and connect with others … and today Sunbury UMC has the Recreation Connection space which often times finds itself with 40 – 50 children and youth using the space to connect with others.
What is your dream for Sunbury UMC?
Pastor Rick Warren, who wrote The Purpose Driven Life said, “Faith is choosing and believing God’s dream for your life. Nothing starts happening in your life until you start dreaming. God gave you the ability to dream, to create, to imagine. Dreaming is an act of faith. Everything you see on this planet started as a dream. Dream great dreams for God. It’s the first step in your walk of faith.”
One of the most important ways to support God’s dream for each of us within our walk of faith is to share his many blessings through our tithes. Enclosed is a commitment card for this upcoming year. Please pray in these coming weeks of our commitment to God and our Dream for Sunbury UMC.
As we walk with God each day, give thanks with a faithful heart and Dream Big with Sunbury
