|A Note From Our Pastor|
|Dear Center Grove Family:|
I am writing simply to say: “Thank you!” Your faithful investment in the work of the Kingdom of God through the ministries of Center Grove Church has allowed us to grow numerically and spiritually. Church membership, worship attendance, Bible studies, and financial giving, even in a hybrid format, continue to be strong and we give all glory to God.
We witnessed so many extraordinary things at Center Grove last year. Here are only a few highlights of ministry and mission:
Partnered with the Legacy Center to distribute food boxes several times during the year
Provided a meal for QuadW interns, a summer missions program for college students
Provided meals for families in the community at Thanksgiving and Christmas
Provided toys to children at Christmas through our Annual Angel Tree Project
Provided school supplies for students at our partner schools
Provided sponsorships for the following events: Legacy Center Kickball Fundraisers for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia; Community Faith Partner’s World AIDS Day; Lakeside UMC Juneteenth Celebration
Completed a successful campaign to pay the balance on our audio-visual equipment
Above all, we are blessed and extremely grateful that God has been doing a transformative thing in our lives, our congregation, and our community. As we continue to move into 2022, I invite each member to remain faithful in their financial giving to the Kingdom of God through Center Grove. My hope is that in 2022 we will not only sustain the ministries of our church but expand our reach even further into the community. The greatest way that we can support the work of Center Grove in this season is by going over and beyond in the giving of our time, our talents, our financial gifts, our service, and our witness. I thank God for you and pray that God will continue to bless you and your family beyond measure.
Grateful to be your pastor!
