Hello, Assurance Family! 

Throughout the month of July, we will be in a message series called "Where Could I Go?”  This series will be centered around Psalm 139. Join us in praying through Psalm 139 daily as we take a slow read through this beautiful psalm of God's steadfast knowledge, love, and care for us all.  

We are so excited to welcome children into our GrowZone!  PRE-Check-In for next Sunday morning is available now, please click the button below. This link will remain open through Friday.

Dear Church Family,

We are so thankful for you and the multitude of ways your generous living & giving keeps our mission at the forefront of who we are at Assurance--to grow in Jesus and go in service.  There are so many God things happening in our midst! 

As we continue to journey through the summer months, we wanted to share with you where we are financially as a church.  Below is a graph that highlights where we stand currently:
Thank you for your continued support and partnership in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are eternally grateful to be a part of Assurance United Methodist Church, and it is a joy and honor to serve in this role as your pastors.

With gratitude and grace,

Register for the August 2nd-6th Summer Camp

Our SCIENCE-focused camp is designed to provide a space where children will experience and connect to God and their faith through various experiments, activities, and projects.

We will explore many things and dive into quite a few messy things, all the while discovering that each and every one of them holds a God Story!  

We would love for you to be a part of one or both of our groups.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to email tina@assuranceumc.org.

"What I mean is this: the one who sows a small number of seeds will also reap a small crop, and the one who sows a generous amount of seeds will also reap a generous crop.  Everyone should give whatever they have decided in their heart. They shouldn’t give with hesitation or because of pressure. God loves a cheerful giver." – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

In response to all that God has done for us, we are invited to give and live generously. Thank you for your partnership in the gospel of Jesus Christ, which allows us to live into our mission to grow in Jesus & go in service.  Your gift matters!
