The 176th Church Anniversary will be celebrated on July 13 during a unity service at 10:15 AM. The theme is “Extraordinary Stewardship – It’s Our Turn.”
The focus is to move the congregation to faith-based stewardship. God has given us all we have; our goal is to acknowledge God’s love and grace through the practice of grateful response. We are no longer affected by factors such as limited time, slack in using talent/skills, or monetary limitations which determine our level of service. Instead, we see ourselves as stewards called to seek, serve and give so that the kingdom of God is fulfilled through the mission of the church. We put our faith in action by finding time, using talent and giving financial resources to promote God’s presence on earth.
The sacrificial gift (donation above our usual) which is requested for the Anniversary offering should be a gift of thankfulness and reflect our gratitude to God for our many blessings.
