Dear SUMC members and friends,
Greetings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ!
Many people in our church seem to be on Facebook. When I see the faces of our congregation on Facebook, I am so glad to see them that I often request that I be friends with them. Then I realized that not everyone would feel comfortable “friending” a virtual stranger. I often feel the same way when I am requested to be a Facebook friend, and I know nothing about the person.
With that realization, I stopped sending friend requests to my church members and friends. However, if you should be interested in being my Facebook friend, please send me a friend request. I will be happy to be your Facebook friend.
The Bible tells us in Ephesians 1:20,21 that church is the body of Christ. As we take care of our body by exercise, nourishment, and proper care, we need to take care of our church by worship attendance, prayers for one another, financial support (if you can), and sharing of gifts and talents. As the Groundbreaking Ceremony is done now, let us all be a unified force to press on to achieve our common goal of building our new sanctuary. Better yet, let us build a community of Christian love.
Sincerely, Your servant in Christ,
