At FBC Umatilla we believe God is doing incredible things, and we love being part of His vision for our lives, We want more than anything to tell the people of the world about what Jesus Christ has done for us, as well as taking care of people. Whether broken, healing or healthy spiritually and physically, we want to love you with the love of Christ.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18
Here at FBC Umatilla, we desire to reach people beyond the doors of our church. We believe that we are the hands and feet of Christ, and we want to meet people’s needs both physically and spiritually. As Christians, we are called to more. To give more. To love more. To become more so that Christ is more in this world.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

1 Thessalonians 5:11
Weâ€™re all human. So it makes sense that our hearts often hurt for people impacted by tragedies here and abroad tragedies that can leave us feeling helpless.
What can we do in response to the violence and destruction around us?
Prayer is the Christian’s greatest weapon.-Billy Graham
As believers, we lookup. We seek out God through prayer and trust in His sovereignty.
When you don’t have any words, or when you feel like you’re beating down God’s door with the same prayer day after day, ask God’s Holy Spirit to help you. The Bible tells us the Holy Spirit is an intercessor for us and cries out to God on our behalf.
When you feel as if your very soul hurts from news reports of another shooting, evil act or disaster, how do you find comfort?
There is a place of refuge.
Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him Proverbs 30:5
Grief can kill a person emotionally and physically. If not counteracted with God’s strength and power, our personal weakness may debilitate us. -Billy Graham. Do our minds ever erase graphic images such as horrifying footage from tragic events?
You may have experienced what’s called secondary trauma from viewing video clips and photos on TV and social media. It’s important to recognize how these lasting impressions can affect you, as they can be physically, emotionally and spiritually damaging.
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. -Galatians 6:2
It’s important to guard your heart, but you can also support others experiencing secondary trauma some who may be going through a personal crisis as well.
