We are experiencing a good year together. The stories you will read in the attached brochure will reveal that we have much for which to be glad and grateful. Our professional skills, personal passions, and resources of money, time and influence are being contributed to carry out a diversity of ministries, programs and mission outreach.
Giving ourselves to something greater than we are can bring spiritual as well as tangible benefits. There is good done to us when we do good for others. This is especially true when the good we do is fueled by our glad and grateful hearts.
This stewardship season is the time to make plans for the good we want to deliver in the year ahead. In the coming weeks, you will hear stories on Sunday mornings (and via weekly email) of the impact that our Extravagant Welcome, Justice & Peace Seeking, and Continuing Testament have had on others. We hope these weeks will be a time for you to consider the celebration and commitment you want to share on Sunday, April 13.
With glad and grateful hearts,
The Church Council
