Excite, Encourage & Empower Disciples For Christ
This is our mission at Griffith First United Methodist!
We would like to welcome any to the house of God. We open our arms to those who thirst for God’s word and guidance. Wherever you are on God’s path, we welcome you to this church with open arms and fellowship. We are located on Cline Avenue across from Strack’s in Griffith.
Again, thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to meeting you soon!
Pastor’s Blog – March, 2014
These last two months have been a financial disaster for our church. We have had to pay for way too many unexpected bills just to keep the church operating. While our various responsibility groups have been diligent in their expenditures, I must inform everyone that we as a church are not doing well financially.
We have not been making our expenses for the operation of the church through our offerings and we are currently trending at a loss for the first two months. I am aware of the increased expenses we have all been dealing with to keep our heads above water as we are looking forward to the melt of our record breaking snow. I wish there was just one thing we need to do to alleviate this problem but there is not. It will take all of us!
I am asking that if you have not been in worship and therefore have not made up your pledges to please do so. If there is any extra your church could also be blessed by your generous giving now is the time. We are working hard as the leadership of the church to provide all of you with the best we can in worship and physical accommodations. Please help us.
On a lighter note; I saw a robin today. It is most likely one that never left but I see it is as sure sign of spring and we all need that!
Hang on, He’s comin’ back!
In JC, Randy
