Dear Minnesota United Methodist Builders and Friends,
“You are the light of the world.
A city set on a hill cannot be hid.
Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
Let your light so shine before all people, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
– Matthew 5:14-16
Every spring and fall, the Board of Directors of the Minnesota United Methodist Builders reviews applications and selects one project in the Minnesota Conference to be the recipient of our Call grant. We are very pleased to announce that the 2018 Fall Call grant is in support of the Glenwood United Parish and their need to remove the black mold from the entire lower level of their building, including their Sunday School classrooms so that they are usable again.
This Glenwood United Parish building has stood on a hill overlooking the town of Glenwood and Lake Minnewaska since 1977. Their Healthy Church Initiative process called for a major rehabilitation of the building and parking lot to make it more welcoming for potential new members and usable for outreach ministries in their community. The 2018 Fall Call will be step one in helping Glenwood United Parish truly shine God’s light from their hill throughout their community, calling everyone to both share in God’s love and be served by God’s people.
The enclosed brochure for the 2018 Fall Call describes in more detail both the mission and ministry of Glenwood United Parish and their plans to both remove the black mold in their lower level and their commitment to an entire church facility rehabilitation project.
You may send your check in the enclosed envelope to support Glenwood United Parish. Please make your check payable to the Minnesota United Methodist Builders, noting on it 2018 Fall Call. You may also donate online by visiting our website at https://MnUMB.org.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Minnesota United Methodist Builders, I invite you to be part of this 2018 Fall Call request.
