“Behold;” the Lord says, “I am doing new things; they spring forth! Do you see it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:16,19) God is doing new things through Belmont UMC: Pastor Ingrid’s new work with community engagement, children’s discipleship under tents, the return of choirs to in-person worship, and so much more! God is upholding and leading us in new ways as we pass through this hard Covid season.

We hope you will join us in God’s work through Belmont UMC in 2022. We ask you to begin to prayerfully consider your financial commitment to Belmont UMC in the coming year. Your pledge card should arrive by mail next week. Let’s give generously and do our part to help bring about God’s kin-dom of love, justice, hope, and welcome on earth as in heaven.

You can pledge online through Realm, make your pledge over the phone or via email by contacting Emily Bowland (615-383-0832, ext. 220), or by filling out a pledge card and dropping it in the mail to P.O. Box 120098, Nashville, TN 37212.
