I am beginning to meet those of you who enjoy the benefits of winter in Sun City. Welcome back! Thank you for your ministry while you are here! I look forward to getting to know each of you and hearing some of your stories. I am discovering many of you already know me because you’ve been worshipping with us via our YouTube and live streaming. I think it’s a real gift to help remain connected through technology.
As you may know, we are in our annual stewardship campaign through November 18 and I have a request for your unique circumstances. Many of you have a home church in the summer and I am certain you give regularly to your home church. I find some stop giving to their home church in the winter while here in the valley and instead, give to their winter church (Lakeview of course!). If this describes you, thank you for your gifts to LUMC!
You can help our budgeting process and the budget of your home church by simply making your giving distribution to each over the full twelve months. By leveling out your giving through the year, it helps us avoid peaks and valleys in our monthly offering and simplifies our budgeting.
Thank you for considering this change in your giving practices.
Pastor John and the Finance team of LUMC
