Most churches have an endowment fund which helps to continue the “Work of the Lord”, in lean years. Union Baptist would like to invite you to help start one.
We, like many other small churches, live in the moment and trust the Lord to provide for our daily and weekly needs. Through the tithes, offerings and generosity of members and friends, we are able to keep this church and it’s missions actively engaged in promoting the cause of Christ here in northeast Connecticut. Your prayers and financial support make it possible for hundreds of families to have hope and faith in God.
Each month dozens of volunteers help distribute food, educate children, and minister to the needy through this growing ministry. We have seen first hand the miraculous provision of the Lord not only for us, but for those who are seeking freedom and liberty from the darkness in their lives. There is HOPE in Christ. As you can imaging this keeps us continually praying and receiving just what is needed, sometimes at the last minute. Thank you Lord! We are extremely thankful for the Lord’s provision. Prayer works!
Our prayer for the long term is that the Lord would inspire some of you to consider leaving something in your will to Union Baptist Church or, if you prefer to one of our various ministries. We believe the Lord has called us to take a step of faith and ensure the financial stability of this church and it’s ministries. If we each contribute a little after a while it will add up to a lot.
We know that the restarting of Union Baptist Church in 1997, was a call from the Lord. We were, and are honored, to respond to that call. We do our best to accomplish His will as we walk the path He has set before us. We are committed to serving Him no matter what the circumstances look like. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of this not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1).
Will you prayerfully consider remembering Union Baptist Church in your long term planning? Your gift to this work will make the difference for generations to come. People will in the future bless the Lord for your generosity today. Let us all ensure that Union Baptist Church and New Hope Community Ministries is here for our grandchildren generation. God bless you and thank you for your prayerful consideration.
