Special Events and Information

 

Please join us on Sunday, November 17, for week five of our six-week journey of spiritual growth, "Committed to Christ." This week's message topic is "The Joy of Giving!" We will explore the question, "Are you ready to grow one or more steps in your giving?" Committed to Christ encourages you to continue your journey to be a disciple of Christ in the world. Each week we are asking you to complete a commitment card related to the sermon topic. These cards are designed to help you take your next step in your journey of spiritual growth. So far we have discussed how you can grow in your discipleship with Jesus Christ through prayer, Bible reading, worship, and witnessing. If you missed a commitment card, contact Helen Boddy at the church office at (610) 253-2731 or greenpondumc@rcn.com.
