Our church family shares a strong heritage in the City of Orlando. For more than 130 years, First United Methodist Church of Orlando has spread God’s love from our corner of downtown Orlando throughout our community and beyond. In the more recent past, our congregation embraced the goal to live W.I.S.E.ly in our community: welcoming the marginalized, identifying with the poor, submitting our resources for God’s purposes, and experiencing God’s love and grace personally and then sharing it with others. We have sent teams of Christians out into our city, into our country, and into our world to spread God’s love to those in need. Our focus has been and remains on serving God’s people and making disciples for Jesus Christ. First Church now faces the challenge to continue our ministries without interruption. We have a financial wall to climb. Our mortgage payments drain our monthly budget, and it’s time to leap that wall and put that mortgage behind us. Together we can pool our funds and lead our church into its future, free to serve and do God’s will.
Please join us in undergirding our capital campaign with strong prayer. For the next 21 days, read through the ministry of the day and pray for that ministry. If your ministry does not appear in this prayer booklet, please add it to your prayers. What a powerful boost these ministries will receive when we all focus our prayers on them individually. May God bless us in our efforts to continue to serve and spread the word of Jesus Christ!
