Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do

even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12

Our mission is to bring people into an always growing relationship with Jesus.  Bringing people to Jesus is not a one-time event, but an ongoing one as we learn, grow, serve and share Him with others.  For 2021 we will be focusing on reaching people with Jesus in all ministry areas.  The 2021 budget is $924,800.00.

Thank you for financial giving to Indian River City UMC.  Your tithes and offerings help us fulfill our mission of Bring People to Jesus to Know Him and to Make Him Known. 

We encourage you to continue tithing and sacrificially giving your treasures as you feel led.  Here at Indian River City UMC by:

Time to go the second-mile

“If any of your kin fall into difficulty and become dependent on you, you shall support them.” - Leviticus 25:35

Thanks to vaccines, we can expect an end to the pandemic this year, but the economic recovery will linger much longer. Our government reports that half the families in our nation lost income in 2020, with some of them forced into desperate poverty.

Billions of dollars in federal assistance and a moratorium on evictions have helped ease the pain, but many are suffering. The pandemic’s economic victims may include you, your family members, and people in your community or congregation.

It’s not too late to adopt a discipline that may simultaneously help bring you closer to God, increase your faith and help your neighbor. Pray for guidance on how best to respond to the tide of need in our midst. Here are some ideas:

  • Pray. Set aside time each day to talk and listen to God.
  • If you can afford to make a financial contribution, give sacrificially to a ministry that‘s helping people get by. A food pantry, soup kitchen, homeless shelter, clothing closet. Can you make a weekly donation?
  • If you cannot afford to make a financial contribution, can you volunteer? Are there special talents – writing, organizing, fund-raising, etc. – that you might be able to donate?
  • In your congregation, start or expand a helping ministry. Alternatively, become a congregational partner to a church or agency that’s already doing a good job.
  • Learn about the needs in your congregation and community, and then educate others.
  • Advocate on issues of poverty and economic justice.

The pandemic’s bruising effects will take years to heal. As God’s people, we can help by praying, serving and supporting those in need.
