United Church of Underhill at 50: We are still growing!
We have different gifts that are consistent with God’s grace that has been given to us. If your gift is prophecy, you should prophesy in proportion to your faith. If your gift is service, devote yourself to serving. If your gift is teaching, devote yourself to teaching. If your gift is encouragement, devote yourself to encouraging. The one giving should do it with no strings attached. The leader should lead with passion. The one showing mercy should be cheerful. – Romans 12:6-8
This fall, the United Church of Underhill is blessed to celebrate 50 years as a united congregation. In 1973, the Methodists and Congregationalists, already working collaboratively in a decades-long partnership, decided to officially unite as one church. Both in the creating of that agreement and in the abundant ministry that has followed, the people of the United Church of Underhill have employed their gifts with joy and persistence. With thanksgiving for our roots, we continue to offer our gifts in hope and faith for the future yet unseen. Read the full stewardship letter.
We will celebrate our fifty years together on Sunday, Nov. 5 during our 10:00 am worship service. Then, on Nov. 12, we will consecrate our pledges for the first of our next fifty years.
You may also make an online pledge of giving for 2024. Responses are viewed only by the financial secretary.
We are grateful for the givers and the gifts, the prayers and the passion that have brought us this far.
