Stewardship - An Act of Faith
1 Corinthians 1:18 – “Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?” God’s ways are certainly not the world’s ways, including the way God tells us to manage the resources He’s given to us. The world says, “hold on, hold back and gather up.” Jesus says to store up treasure in heaven where moth and rust do not destroy and where no thief breaks in to steal. Whose way do you think is best? What is wiser: the wisdom of the financial gurus or the foolishness of God?
Thank you so much for all the cards, calls and prayers while I was out for knee surgery. A most special thank you to my "pew partners," Charlie and Sandy, for all the extra kindness they showed me. We are such a blessed people to have such a wonderful congregation and two of the best pastors. Thanks be to God. -Rita Tilley

As the Pastor said, if you add on gestational age she would have been 100 years old, having been born in August of 1923, and living until December of 2022. God's Blessings, the families of Vaughn, Cheryl, Jan and Marcia.
