I believe, as I hope you do, that the ministries of our church are a blessing to both our church body and families outside our congregation. God continues to bless us as we grow in number and influence in our community. Yet with this growth comes a challenge. Since our current monthly income must be used for our operating budget, we must now focus on a solution to maintain the positive mission and ministry of Colonial Park United Methodist Church.

Accelerate is the name chosen for our stewardship journey.  We believe that with God’s guidance, this ministry will fulfill the financial needs of our church. As part of  Accelerate, every household is asked to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial commitment—over and above your ongoing level of generosity—to be given over the next three years.  We hope to raise the necessary funds in order to accelerate the vision of our church and create momentum for our future in ministry and mission.  Accelerate is a vital step for our future, and your involvement impacts our success.

Let me encourage your attendance on Sunday, October 6th. During this special service you will learn more about the renovation project and Accelerate. We will discuss the importance of church-wide prayer during this crucial time, and we will share information about our church and its ministry.

These are exciting days of decision in our church. Let us commit to seek and act in God’s will.  To the glory of God, we will move ahead in faith to the future God intends for us.

Yours because I am His,

Pastor Jathaniel
