This Saturday is a big event called Trunk or Treat. It lasts from 3:00-5:00 in the afternoon on that Saturday and is fun for our church young people as well as many youngsters from our immediate neighborhood. There will be candy, food, and family fun for all ages.
Also, Loyalty Sunday is this Sunday with nationally recognized speaker, preacher, and author Kent Millard being our special guest at all three Sanctuary services. You are invited to bring your pledge card forward for dedication at the communion rail. All are invited to come forward and pray.
Because some of you think I am too long-winded, I will summarize my understanding of Christian stewardship in brief:
The point of Christian stewardship is not to repay God what we owe God. The point of Christian stewardship is to share what God has given each of us with those with whom God wants us to share. When we share God’s bounty we live up to the promise of scripture. One promise suggests that “We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19).
