We hope you will give prayerful consideration to making both financial and volunteer pledges this year in support of
this special place we call our church, Umphress Road United Methodist Church. Every pledge helps us grow our
spiritual and impactful programming for members, expand our children and youth ministries, and allows us to have a
greater impact on our community and the world.
God uses our giving to change the world for God’s purposes, and God uses our giving to reconfigure our lives and
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Kenneth Park
