FREEDOM FOR THE FUTURE

FRIENDSWOOD METHODIST CHURCH

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

A LETTER FROM REV. JIM BASS

For almost sixty years, Friendswood Methodist has been a church that has reached out to our community with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. Over the years, this mission prompted us to expand and make more room for others, eventually leading to the construction of our current worship center. During those sixty years, we faced many challenges, but the Lord always provided.

 

Today, we face another challenge. We need to retire our remaining debt from the building and disaffiliation to focus all our resources on our mission to show others Jesus and grow our children, students, and adults to become his fully devoted followers. Our debt has hampered us in our mission and ministry over the years. We spend almost a hundred thousand dollars a year in interest alone. I would rather spend that on ministry and mission. I am confident you would as well!

 

We are in a solid position to grow following the challenges we faced with COVID-19, the

worship center flooding, and disaffiliation. As we enter our second year as a Global Methodist congregation, our church has never been more aligned than it is now to share a gospel-centered, biblically-grounded, and missionally-minded message with others.

 

That is why the Freedom for the Future capital campaign is so essential. The time is now! We need to retire our debt and replace our aging sanctuary AC system to step into the future God has for Friendswood Methodist Church. If we can give more than needed, we could upgrade our sanctuary sound and video systems, make overdue maintenance on the organ, renovate the FLC kitchen, provide new signage, and more.

 

The Lord will provide today as He always has! Please read through the brochure’s information about our vision for the future and your opportunity to participate. I also invite you to sign up for one of our informational meetings and attend worship each week to learn biblical principles about where God is leading us. But most of all, seek the Lord’s direction in prayer about what He calls you to do on our Commitment Sunday on May 5th.

 

Blessings,
