Committed to Christ
Making Disciples of a new Generation
Below is a link for our devotional booklet written by friends of this church. It has been compiled and curated by Fran Conger and Julian Sparrow. It is designed to travel with you through the spiritual journey that is an integral part of the capital campaign we are beginning today.
Our church vision is Making Disciples of a New Generation. We want to carry on RUMC’s witness to the love of Jesus Christ in our community. We want to continue to serve Rockville and our world through acts of mercy and justice. You will be hearing more about this vision in the weeks ahead.
In the meantime, I ask with all my heart that you read this devotional booklet and pray. Our campaign kick-off date is April 15. Perhaps you could set an alarm every
day at 4:15 as a reminder to pray. If that time doesn’t work, choose another and remain faithful in prayer. Pray for these things:
• The City of Rockville—for its well being and for how our church can bless this community
• Rockville United Methodist Church—that we might be faithful to Jesus’ commission to make disciples
• Our capital campaign—that we might raise funds needed to support new ministry through reduced debt
• Your part in all of this—ask God what you should give to this campaign—ask and then listen
Thank you for joining in this journey. I will be praying for you and I hope you will be praying for me.
In the love of Christ which binds our hearts,
Christ has called Rockville United Methodist Church (RUMC) to make disciples of Christ to reach and love our neighbors. God’s grace compels us to share God’s love by inviting others to faith in Christ and by serving our neighborhood and the world.
