It's true: we're having to revisit the topic of stewardship in response to our recent financial challenges. But, may I suggest that it's God's way of gently reminding us to focus on a topic that we need to revisit regularly in our lives? As we move forward, we'll be doing a couple of things to address our financial challenges. We'll be looking at how we can be more responsible with our budgeting and expenditures. At the same time, another important thing for us to be doing is examining ourselves to make sure that we are being faithful stewards of God's gifts. What is stewardship? What does a faithful steward look like? We'll be answering those questions and others, starting with the first: What is stewardship? (follow link to read more)
The church council has scheduled a special voters' meeting for Sunday, January 7, 2018, immediately following the service (since we will be on our new schedule-- one service at 9:00 a.m.-- it will start at approximately 10:15).

Our Thursday morning Women's Bible Study is beginning a new study on the book, "Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God's Overflowing Gifts" by Deb Burma. Even if coffee isn’t your beverage of choice, you look forward to downtime, especially if it is spent with a friend who wants your company. Jesus is such a friend. The Lord wants our company. He invites us to meet with Him in His Word. Just imagine what He has in store for us as we meet Him with our “cup”—our self—a vessel created and chosen by God, redeemed in Christ, and ready to be filled for His purpose. Time spent in Bible study will fill you to the brim and beyond with God’s Good News. Sip, savor, and drink deeply from His Word. Receive the outpouring of His grace, His joy, and His peace!
