Our Daily Readings Continue

Join us as we "Step out in Faith" and read "Practicing Extravagant Generosity" daily.

Hope you are “Stepping in Faith” and have enjoyed the daily readings in your Practicing Extravagant Generosity book. These short readings are a great way to start your day. 

Thank you Ashley for your wonderful talk last week. If you missed it - take a minute to watch it here.  Ashley's talk begins at approximately 31:33.

This week's speaker is someone we hear from a lot during church - but this talk will be different. I have asked Fr. Mike to gave his testimony on stewardship as he did a few years ago. 

Thank you for your commitment to this Generosity Journey. Don't forget we will be filling out our Estimate of Giving Cards in church on Sunday, November 24th during both the 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. services.

"Lord, where would you want me to be in my giving?" -- Sr. Warden Charlie Downing

Pack a Shoebox for a Child in Need

Shoeboxes must be received in the church by Nov. 24th.  

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide children  with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world.

If you would like to participate in Operation Christmas Child, you can pick up a shoebox in the church office or use a shoebox you have at home. 

The filled boxes will be blessed during the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday, November 24th and delivered on Monday, November 25th. Have questions? Click here for additional information about Operation Christmas Child, watch a short video here on what to pack in your box, or talk to Becky Capt.
