Celebrate the Power of Generosity this weekend


The Power of Generosity begins with our simple decision to generously return to God a portion of the blessings he has provided to us. This Saturday and Sunday, (Nov. 22/23) is Stewardship Commitment weekend. Please remember to bring your commitment card with you to worship this weekend and put it in the offering plate as it comes by. You can also send your card to the church by mail, or make your commitment online. Thank you for your commitment to stewardship as a way of life. Your gifts change lives!
