The United Methodist Church of Evergreen
Pastor Russell Fletcher

Sunday, June 10, 2018
3rd Sunday after Pentecost
Services at 8:30 & 10:30 am


Russell's Ritings....

To many "discipline" is a dirty word! It conjures up pictures of punishment - like standing in the corner, being sent to our room, and being forced to do things we do not want to do. Self - discipline is just as bad - controlling our impulses or denying ourselves things we really want.
 
But we need discipline! We need it to force us to do what must be done, to accomplish worthwhile goals, to be what we want to be. We need discipline to avoid being lazy and floating through life.
 
We need to pray God to forgive us our undisciplined lives and teach us to set goals in our daily living so we can achieve our potential. This will enable us to be worthy of our calling for the sake of His Kingdom!
 
The last in the sermon series on "Things We Need" is DISCIPLINE! The text is Luke 4: 1 - 13. I hope to see you Sunday!
 
"and the folks are friendly"
 
Russell

DID YOU KNOW?
THE MANY WAYS YOU
CAN SUPPORT UMCE  WITH
YOUR FINANCIAL GIFTS 




There are many ways you can support  our church besides the Sunday morning  offering. Here are just a few: 

Birthday Donations
During the month of your birthday make a donation to the church equal to the number of years you have been on this earth (or any number you are comfortable with). Make a birthday donation for your parents, children or best friend.

Grocery Card Purchases
Purchase a King Soopers or Safeway reloadable gift card at the church. Use it and keep reloading it to buy your groceries and gasoline at King Soopers or Safeway. Buy the grocery cards for family members, friends, service providers, etc. Encourage them tot he reload the cards and use them to purchase their groceries and gasoline. The church makes 5% on grocery card purchases.  

Vehicle Donations
Donate your used vehicle to the church. We have a contract with an organization which sells used vehicles. They give a portion of the sales price to our church.  

IRA Rollovers to Benefit the Church
The IRA rollover is a simple and easy way to grow God' s kingdom.  If you are 70½, you may rollover up to $100,000 from your IRA to the church without paying any federal income tax on your gift. Your gift to the church from your IRA will qualify for your 2018 required minimum distribution (RMD). To make an IRA rollover gift in 2018, simply contact your custodian and request that all or  part of your required minimum distribution  (RMD) be transferred to the church. For more information, visit rm-umf.org or contact the United Methodist Foundation at 303-778-6370.

All of these donations provided added benefit to our church.  Thank you for your support!
