Disaster Relief Efforts

Dear Friends,  As I am sure you know, Llano and Burnet counties experienced significant flood damage this week.  And I am sure you are wondering how to help.  The following would be much appreciated:  Monetary donations for “Flood Bucket” supplies.  Our missions committee will very soon be putting together Flood Buckets to replenish diminished stocks.  Each Flood bucket has approximately $75 worth of cleaning supplies.  You can make your donation out to “Fredericksburg UMC – Flood Buckets.” (donate online here: http://fredumc.org/giving/)We…

Psalm Forty-Six…

God is our refuge and strength,an ever-present help in trouble.Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

Schoolhouse Angels

As Christians, Jesus teaches us to love our neighbors – and for our church, one of those neighbors geographically is Fredericksburg Elementary School (FES), just a few blocks away from our building.  Our Schoolhouse Angels group coordinates acts of service for the 109 staff at FES.  During the beginning of the year teacher in-service they served breakfast tacos, and in September provided highlighters with the encouragement “You are the HIGHLIGHT of FES”.  This month the Schoolhouse Angels are planning to give gift cards…

Giving

Giving and financial stewardship are vital parts of the life of any disciple of Jesus Christ. Of course, the church needs the financial support of those who are part of its ministry, but that is not the primary reason we give. More important than the ministry program’s need for funds is the Christian’s need to give. We believe that everything we own belongs to God and that God calls us to give back to him a significant portion of what He has entrusted to us. We do this primarily through our giving to the church, and regular, systematic giving is important as we live out our faith. Tithing (giving 10% of our income) or proportional giving is the practice that best demonstrates this practice.
