This quarter of the year we are challenged to love unconditionally. 1 Corinthians 16:14 reads, “Everything should be done in love.” May everything you do radiate the love of Christ. As we worship may the God of hope, peace, love and joy fill this place. Come, Holy Spirit, Come.

Giving Options: · In-person offerings may be dropped in the offering box in the Sanctuary at the entry/exit on Sundays. · Offerings can also be mailed or dropped off at the church office 300 W.

We know we have taken baby steps toward the life you’ve called us to live. The giving is easy compared to the kind loving you expect us to extend to others: a love that is patient, unselfish, forgiving, and full of hope that endures through anything. May we grow in our giving, but even more in our loving as your Son taught us. We pray this in the name of Jesus, who gave in enduring love all there was to give for us. Amen.
