Elm Springs Friends and Family, As 2021 draws to a close, I want to say a heartfelt thank you to each of you for making the mission and ministries of Jesus happen at Elm Springs UMC. Without your contributions both financial and spiritual, we could not do the amazing things we're doing. We feed families from our buildings, we offer ways to connect to Christ and grow in our faith. We provide opportunities for our community to have fun and know that there is a group of people who care about them and are praying for them. We support our local schools, teachers, police officers, and medical workers. There are so many ways we share the transforming love of Jesus with others.
In Philippians 1:6, Paul tells the church of Philippi that "He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it...." Paul knew that the Philippian church was faithfully sharing the gospel of Christ and that God would honor that. I believe God has already begun this "good work" in us at Elm Springs. We have grown so much individually and collectively, and I'm confident God will continue to work in us and through us in 2022. It would be a true blessing if we could begin 2022 on strong financial footing, ready to follow the Holy Spirit! If you have the ability to make a year-end gift to the ministries of ESUMC, I invite you to do so now. For tax purposes, all gifts must be received/post-marked by December 31 at 11:59pm. You can drop a gift in the mail (PO Box 8, Elm Springs, AR 72728), or in our secured mailbox located on the left side of the main entrance, or you can give a secure gift online through elmsprings.church/give. Again, thank you for living our our mission to Be Disciples who Make Disciples.
Grace and Peace to each of you in this new year!
