Dear Minnesota United Methodist Builders and Friends,
For every house is built by some one, but the builder of all things is God.
And we are his house if we hold fast to our confidence and pride in our hope.
– Hebrews 5:4, 6b
Every spring and fall, the Board of Directors of the Minnesota United Methodist Builders reviews applications and selects one project to be the recipient of our Call grant. We are very pleased to announce that the 2017 Spring Call grant is in support of Peace United Methodist Church of Richfield and their plans for the installation of a new rooftop heating unit that will bring all-season comfort directly to their building’s lower level and radiate upward to support seasonal comfort to their sanctuary, nursery, and common areas.
The Church of Peace was built on the Richfield and Edina borders and was dedicated in 1958. Additions were made to the building in 1961 and 1989 to accommodate the needs of the growing congregation. This Call will help support the comfort of the congregation as they worship and carry out their ministries in the community. Even more importantly, it will also greatly assist the Christian values-focused daycare center housed within their building that also provides after-school supervision for grade-schoolers whose parents are working when those children get out of school.
The enclosed brochure for the 2017 Spring Call describes in more detail both the mission and ministry of the Church of Peace, but also the hope of their members to be even more effective builders with God in their missional outreach to the changing needs of the community surrounding their church facility.
You may send your check in the enclosed envelope to help the Church of Peace in Richfield be the house of God in word and deed in their community. Please make checks payable to the Minnesota United Methodist Builders, noting “2016 Spring Call”. You may also donate online by visiting our website at https://MnUMB.org.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the MnUMB, I invite you to be part of this Spring Call request.
Rev. Larry W. Mens
