With a grateful heart we give praise and thanks to God for our shared ministry, and your commitment to the ministry God has called us to do.
Reflecting upon the many ways God is at work at Hyde Park Community/Over-the-Rhine Community UMC, it is with a grateful heart we pray with King David: “Yours, O Lord, are the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and on the earth is yours; . . . all things come from you, and of your own have we given you . . . I know, my God, that you search the heart and take pleasure in uprightness; in the uprightness of my heart I have freely offered all these things, and now I have seen your people who are present here, offering freely and joyously to you.” (from 1 Chronicles 29:11-17)
The Covenant people Israel knew, and Jesus taught: All we have comes from God and belongs to God. Therefore, it was with a grateful heart that they “freely and joyously” offered God their tithes.
We invite you to prayerfully consider how you will support the mission and ministry of Hyde Park Community/Over-the-Rhine Community United Methodist Church through your financial resources. With a grateful heart we invite you to join us in “freely and joyously” committing the “tithe” (10% of your income) in 2016. If you are unable to commit to the tithe, we encourage you to take a percentage step towards tithing in your giving. Please pray for God to guide your decision to invest sacrificially in the ministry of Jesus Christ; our prayers are with you!
Love in Christ,
Pastors Cathy and Doug Johns
