A Word From Mike…

Proverbs 11.25
A generous person will be enriched,
and one who gives water will get water.

This passage of scripture is one of my favorites and one I have often adapted when praying a prayer for others.  I pray that God bless them as they have been a blessing to others.

We have had several people bless the church in recent weeks. Gifts have been given towards our awesome looking new playground addition, towards the establishing of a new church parlor and the Pettigrew’s were gracious enough to purchase a full New Interpreter’s Bible Commentary set.  If anyone finds the 10 copies that vanished, we would still love them back!

God has blessed us with a beautiful campus and while that is not the focus of who we are, every investment you give makes a difference.  I am thankful for your generous witness to me and your thoughtfulness for our congregation.

Thanks for sharing the journey,
Mike
