TWELVE MONTHS OF GIVING


The Events Committee continues Twelve Month of Giving, sponsoring and collecting items for Utica's food pantry.  Each month the pantry volunteers
let us know what is most needed.  Please place your donations in the bin upstairs or downstairs by the door.  We will collect your donations at the church 
and deliver them to the pantry.

Items Needed for the Month of June:

TUNA, PANCAKE MIX, SYRUP, SOUP
 
 
  Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have,
 for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.  Hebrews 13:16
THANK YOU NOTE
Utica UMC,

Thank you from all of us at LEADS Pantry.  We continue to serve over 120 families each month.  This would not be possible without your help.  God bless each and every one of you.

Love, All of us

MOMENTS WITH MARK #238
We all need a sturdy and steady source of confidence (belief or trust in oneself or someone else).  That confidence we need and can depend on comes from something with a solid foundation.  Jesus Christ is the solid foundation we need!  No matter what we are facing, Jesus is better!  No matter how big the challenge, Jesus is capable.  No matter how negative the prognosis, Jesus can turn the situation around.  When you're facing a frightening situation or a major challenge, fix your eyes on your source of strength.  "Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished the race we're in." (Hebrews 12:2 MSG)

We might look to ourselves.  Look to a friend.  Look to a coach or teacher.  Look to our leaders.  We even look inside ourselves.  Bottom line: We need to look to Jesus!  Our confidence weakens when we turn to someone or something else other than Jesus.  He is the rock!  "So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord.  Remember the great reward it brings you." (Hebrews 10:35 NLT)  When life is throwing a lot at you, grab hold of Jesus with both hands and never let go!  Jesus is always better!  He's been through it all!  "But take heart, because I have overcome the world." (John 16:33 NLT)
