God’s Love in Action: Past, Present, and Future

The story of our church is a story of God’s love in action. This Sunday, as we begin our annual giving campaign, we’ll be looking through the lens of God’s faithfulness as we have repeatedly experienced it in our congregation. We look with gratitude to our past and founding, our present ministries that touch and transform lives, our future and God’s vision for our church that inspires our hope and forward reach to do all that God asks of us. Some faithful Methodist pioneers started organizing our church back in 1960. Today, in 2019, we still need that forward-looking and hopeful spirit to move us into God’s future.

I doubt our founders at PV could envision all that we are doing in ministry today, the buildings we have built, the countless lives that have been touched. We are all blessed by the work of people who came before us and prepared the way for us to enjoy and grow in faith because of their mighty efforts. Tomorrow will be no different. Children, youth and adults will come to PVUMC in the years to come and know challenge, comfort, and blessing of faith because of what we do now. Sunday we worship God whose faithfulness to us inspires our ministry so there will be a church who cares for all who come to grow in a community of faith. Our church has been and hopefully always will be a place that sends people out into the world to be God’s love in action. Join us Sunday as we recreate a worship experience from our past, remembering how things got started here and how God works in our present and future. See you in church!
