For the first time in the history of our new church, offerings are very close to what we’ve projected. That may not sound like headline news, but it’s an important sign of health. We have a way yet to grow before we’re financially self-sufficient– we still very much depend on those of you who support us from afar– but we’re getting there. For all of you who join in our efforts by faithfully and consistently giving, thank you so much!
Please pray with me: Generous God, we give because you first gave us everything– even your Only Son. Thank you for moving in our young church to grow in our giving. May all those who give through Everyday Church experience your words, Jesus: “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)
Please pray for our next sermon series, “Save the Date”. Not all days are the same. Some days are life changing. Weddings, birthdays, and graduations mark endings and beginnings of important seasons of our lives. God wants to put a date like that on each of our calendars, a date that will mark, for all eternity, our rebirth into his forever family. It’s called baptism.
