The Belmar congregation is small in number but huge in dedication and heart. This experience has been a great challenge and a blessing all in one. I have come to learn what "Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread" truly means. We are counting on Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" as a family.
The following is the Belmar UMC church assessment.
- It is our goal to focus on Mission/Outreach - We hope to install showers and dormitory style space for mission ministry.
- Senior Citizens - We hope to be a center for activity, meals and wellness for them specifically.
- Young Adults/youth and families - We hope to bring more relevant space to meet there needs (coffee house, education programs, concerts, etc.)
- New Worship - We hope to have the sanctuary rebuilt in a contemporary style as a multi-purpose room with new equipment, sound system, full baptismal, stage, art, etc. We also hope to have the school remain there.
Please continue to pray for us. We are so grateful to have your encouragement and support. This is such a sensitive time especially coming into Annual Conference and Appointment season. We are so excited to share in the journey and pray God will prevail. Luke 18:1 is my favorite scripture and we know that the Lord is faithful and He will strengthen and protect us.
God bless you and your ministry.
In Christ's Love
