STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT - Luke 15:2 – “And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, ‘This man receives sinners and eats with them.’ ” Thanks be to God: Jesus receives us sinners. What the Pharisees can’t understand, we praise with all our being. We live by the grace of God. The more of it we receive, the more we will want to conform ourselves to the image of our generous and gracious Lord. Knowing the Lord and trusting Him come first, and the desire to imitate Him cannot help but follow.
A very special THANK YOU Eric Peterson and Lisa Marie for their hard work and generosity in the refinishing of our blacktop areas near the church.
ADDRESS CHANGES / PHONE # CHANGES - In order to keep our Directory current and updated, please pick up an address form on the back table in the Narthex, fill out and return either in the collection plate or leave on the secretary’s desk. A form was also included in the Ambassador for our shut in friends. Many of you have added cell phones and/or have disconnected your landlines which has made it difficult to contact you. Thank you.
