2019 Stewardship Letter

Dear TLUMC Church Family,


As you have been hearing in worship each Sunday during our series “The 20/20 Church,” Tri-Lakes UMC is moving into the next decade with the vision of being a church that is:

  • Theologically traditional
  • Personally transformational
  • Outwardly missional

It’s a vision that helps us to further define our mission to “build followers of Jesus Christ who love and serve God and neighbor.” We want to be a church that is grounded in Scripture and the historic expression of the Christian faith, a church where people are seeing their lives transformed, and a church that is serving people in mission in our community, our region, and in the wider world.


I’m very excited about this vision and about what it will mean for TLUMC as we move into the year 2020 and well beyond. While there is a lot of turbulence in our world and uncertainty in our denomination at present, we know that this clear and compelling vision will drive our congregation no matter what the future might bring. We want to be a church that is making a difference for God’s kingdom in the lives of people.


Expanding this vision means that we will also need to expand our capacity to resource it with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Your generosity with money, time, and talent means everything to the life of the church and to the people we will reach with the Gospel. As we move through this sermon series, you will be hearing about ways in which additional resourcing in the areas of mission and personal transformation will increase our church’s impact with people who are in need both physically and spiritually. I hope that you feel, as I do, a deep desire to invest in this great work!


I love that we are a generous congregation and I’m thankful to each of you for the investment you make in the life of TLUMC. As we move into 2020, I invite you to invest even further in our collective work. Enclosed is an Investment Card where you can indicate your intended investment in the work of the church. This is only an estimate, but it does give our Finance Committee a clearer picture of what we as a church can plan to do with our resources in the coming year. If you prefer, you can also indicate your investment intentions online by going to tlumc.org/invest We’d like to receive investment information back by November 24 as we prepare for the new year.


Thank you again for your continued support of TLUMC!



In Christ,­
