Above & Beyond Campaign
Dear First Church Family and Friends,
It is such an exciting time to be a part of First United Methodist Church. As we remember those who laid the foundation for our church to grow, we embark upon an effort we pray will take us Above and Beyond our current horizons.
We hope some of our information has already reached you and you are becoming familiar with the Above and Beyond Capital Campaign. This campaign the financial foundation for the church’s “Six-Year Vision” that we have discussed at church and in home meetings. This vision is realized through growth in three S’s: Small groups, Service, and Stewardship. Your commitment to the campaign will take us to a new level of Christian stewardship. With your generosity we will be able to:

First United Methodist Church cannot grow without your prayers and your gifts. We trust that you have been—and will continue—praying for the success of the capital campaign. We also trust that you will give Above your normal “tithe” (offering) to help your church take this important step Beyond our sanctuary walls and throughout the church campus and the St. Petersburg community. Remember that everything we have, and indeed everything we are, is a blessing and a gift of love from our Heavenly Father.
The pledge form outlines several methods you can use to make your gift. Please complete the form with your Above and Beyondpledge and return it to the church. We encourage you to contact our church Business Administrator, Nelson Dort, at the church office at 727.894.4661, if you have questions.
During the transition to the new buildings, we ask for your prayers and your patience as we adapt to the many exciting changes we are making. In our quest to go forth and make disciples, let us call upon the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen us as a church family.
Yours in Christ, Yours in Christ,
