Bishop Sue received a letter of thanks from Moses Kumar, General Secretary of the General Council on Finance and Administration of The United Methodist Church, to the people of the North Georgia Conference for your apportionment giving that funds the ministries of our global denomination. Thanks to this giving, lives are changed through the ministries of our Church.
December 5, 2017
We bring you greetings from the General Council on Finance and Administration during this Advent Season. We want to take this opportunity to say “Thank you!”
We wish to give thanks to you and the faithful members of your Annual Conference for your commitment to the general Church apportioned funds. Your gifts are a blessing to the Church. Your example throughout the connection is a reminder that God has blessed The United Methodist Church with people who are committed to supporting our connectional ministries. I am honored to work with and among people who give so others benefit from the ministries of our Church.
The ministries of our global denomination depend on your faithful giving. The work of our missionaries, the training of our leaders, and the resources for Disciple-making are all possible and available because of your support. With this giving, lives are changed and communities get to see what it means to be the Church in their world.
While we will always give thanks for what God has given us, I ask you to continue to pray with me for our Church as we continue our ministry of making disciples of Jesus Christ.
As we work together for the people of The United Methodist Church and celebrate the ministries of its people, I am reminded of this scripture from Isaiah 26:12 “Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.”
Thank you for your example of leadership.
Please share this “Thank You” message with the members of your annual conference as an expression of our appreciation.
A. Moses Rathan Kumar
General Secretary & Treasurer
