GP FAITH WORKS
God blesses us in so many ways and we have so much for which to be thankful! At the June Presbytery meeting, we celebrated the abundance of spiritual gifts and resources within MUP.  As part of the meeting, everyone was asked to fill out a form titled, “Celebrating Missouri Union Presbytery.” If you right click here, a summary of responses received is available.  It is truly uplifting to read!

Moving forward, we will be building on our strengths as a Presbytery, and one of those strengths is clearly our common call to mission work.  If your congregation is participating in any mission efforts this summer, locally or beyond, please send some photos to the Presbytery office.  Next month they will be posted on the MUP website in order to affirm these very important ministries that we share.  Also, please feel free to post them on the MUP Facebook page.

Your partner in ministry,

Deborah
