Growing Today for Tomorrow
With joy and gratitude for our 45 years in ministry at the corner of Chestnut Street & Somers Road, the East Longmeadow United Methodist Church has launched a capital fund raising campaign to meet the future needs of our growing ministries and to provide a more functional and welcoming environment for our members and the many visitors we've been receiving. Like any 45-year-old home, our building requires updating to make it safe and sustainable. After addressing our immediate needs concerning repairs to the exterior of the building and accessibility modifications to meet building code and ADA requirements, we will make improvements to support our growing Sunday School, upgrade our worship space, and explore green energy to be better stewards of creation and to lower our utility costs. We're also overdue on our parsonage garage commitment and need to protect our investment in that property. Finally, we will tithe 10% of the monies raised for outreach through the New Hope Regional Ministry supporting collaborative urban ministries in Greater Springfield.
