Stewardship Thought – 1 Corinthians 6:19b-20 – “You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” God owns everything, including our very selves. We were made to serve Him and glorify Him and will never truly be happy or find our fulfillment until we learn that lesson. Jesus has redeemed us and brought us back into the Kingdom of the Father, and that has set us free to serve Him in joy, generosity, liberty, and faith.

THANK YOU to everyone who generously dropped off food or monetary donations for the Rosemeyer family (Tonya Klabon’s brothers’ family). Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
