JUNE Communion Offering

This month we are focusing our efforts on supporting and encouraging Ardell and Gordon Graner in their ministry with the people in the Dominican Republic. This is especially dear to our hearts not only because we’ve been supporting them for over 30 years, but also because a group from First UMC went to the DR this past winter and had an amazing experience. Ardell’s focus is on helping the church there develop and write curriculum that makes sense in their context and is then used with Sunday School teachers and as devotional writing for the various churches. Gordon’s focus is both on expanding the Solar Oven Project, which supports families and business owners, and also on assisting pastors and congregations to be effective in proclaiming and living the Gospel of our Lord. We are thrilled to be partners with the Graners in sharing God’s love in these ways!
