What defines your life? Is it wealth? Belongings? Faith? Many of us live with a scarcity mentality, worried that we must gather and hoard as much as possible, saving for some imagined “rainy day.” Or we focus on self-gratification. But the Bible promises both God’s blessings and joy for those who choose to live another way.
During this Sunday’s worship services, we will look at the vision of the church. Where have we been? Where are we now? Where is God leading us into the future? It isn’t just about the direction of the church, but it invites us to reflect deeper on our own lives. Where are you heading now? Where is God leading you? How do you plan to grow personally, spiritually, and relationally?
Next week, you will be receiving an estimate of giving commitment card in the mail. On a practical level, we ask our members to turn in estimate of giving cards each year so our Finance Committee is able to set an accurate ministry budget for the coming year. This allows us to make the most of every dollar given to the church. On a personal level, the commitment card is an opportunity for you to spend time in prayer and reflection, considering what offering you would make to God through our church in the coming year. Please be watching for the mailing; then fill out the card and bring it with you to worship on Sunday, October 5. You also can pledge online.
