This coming Sunday is Pledge Sunday, the culmination of our stewardship emphasis. Last Sunday in worship, we heard moving testimonies from church members sharing how UBC made a difference in their lives.
Lu Overbeck recalled a period in her life when she was inactive at church. But after the death of her husband, the church welcomed her and her daughter Ruth back with open arms, and invited them to different groups. The members of UBC were there when Lu needed them most.
Debby Johnson shared how she found a welcoming and loving community, as well as her husband when she started attending UBC almost forty years ago. Larry Johnson talked about the many priceless gifts he has received from UBC—from his grandparents and parents who were lifelong UBC members, to close friends, Wednesday morning work crew buddies, golfing companions and fellow Sunday School class members.
Finally, new members Brent and Sarah Wilson talked about what a blessing it was to find a church family not only to worship and fellowship, but one with other young couples to share life’s journey.
It was inspiring to hear their testimonies, and you can view the video here.
How has UBC made a difference in your life? How can you give back in gifts that build up the church?
