Pastor Linda Settles
Hello GT Family & Friends!
Thank you for sowing seeds at the UMC of Green Trails and investing in the Kingdom building work that we do! It is your faithful and generous giving that has helped this church to make disciples of Jesus Christ for over fifty years. We are so grateful for you!
You may have heard that today is Giving Tuesday. On this important day, we are focused on giving to non-profit organizations that help others. There are so many to choose from, and I just wanted to remind you that your church is one of those organizations! Now, if you’re connected to Green Trails in any kind of way, you are probably already giving to the church, so why send this email? Because your extra gifts on Giving Tuesday will help us to meet our goal by year-end. We have seen the effects of inflation on our personal finances, so you can imagine the impact on the church. And also, because there are more ministries that are needed, more people to be touched in this community, and more things that God is calling us to do. This goes beyond meeting our budget, but it goes to the heart of making a real difference in the lives of children, youth, and adults through the ministries of Green Trails. You can help make this happen!
“Still other seeds fell on fertile soil. And they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted.”
If you would like to sow an extra seed that has Kingdom impact, please click the link below or mail it to the church office and use the phrase “Giving Tuesday.” Then, consider giving of your time and talents. We have multiple opportunities to help at the church, LifeWiseSTL, and our other missional partners. This is the season when we are hyper-focused on giving, to God and to the world! Again, we thank you for all that you have done, for what you continue to do, and for what you will do to help make a difference in the world!
“Whatever you do, do it as unto the Lord…”
