Vision Statement:
‘Building a community together that
explores faith & experiences God’

St. Andrew’s Online

May 25, 2016

I read this the other day and thought how true:

Most people who turn on a television set,
don’t know how it works.
But they can’t deny that it works.
The image on the screen tells them that.

Most people who drive a car don’t know how it works.
But they can’t deny that it does.
The motion of the car tells them that.

In the same way,
most people don’t know how faith in Jesus works.
But they can’t deny that it does.
The change in people’s lives tells them that.
Without faith in Jesus,
many could never do the things they now do.

Do you let your faith in Jesus empower your life?

        Blessings,

Pastor Melissa

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
