Topic: Loving My Neighbor

Our lives are made up of small, daily decisions that eventually shape our character. Jesus highlights this principle in Luke 16:10, “Whoever is faithful in little things will be faithful in large ones.” 
We are inviting each of you to participate in monthly experiment that will engage and encourage you to look at stewardship in a whole new way.

Fill out our new Time and Talent form!
We want to make sure we know your talents and what you love to do! Please take a few minutes to fill out the form - there are several pages and with the hopes of not missing anything. This info will be shared with our current ministry teams to ensure more involvement!
Confirmation during Lent
We will not formally meet during Lent, but the confirmands have a project of their own! We have asked them to choose 6 different topics (provided from our Lenten theme Again and Again) and reflect on them in a journal. They will also be connecting with some adults via mail through out Lent as well. Please keep our confirmands in your prayers as they journey through Lent.
