Stewardship Notes

Matthew 21:3– “If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.”
Consider the faithfulness of that man who owned the donkey and colt. All he needed to hear was, “The Lord has need of it.” Then he gave willingly. The Lord has given each of us various callings in life – in our homes, in the Church, and in the communities in which we live. In each calling we have good work to do which comes from the Lord’s hand. The Lord has need of us in each calling. How is He calling you to generous giving in each of your vocations?

Cards for Libby Care Center –We need 70 Christmas cards. Have 34 done. Cards are in basement. Take as many as you can do. Doesn’t take long to do a card. And there’s no monetary cost to you. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.

Faith Steps – Every morning this week make a list of 5 blessings God has given you. Thank Him by sharing 1 or 2 of them during the day.

Blankets – Six blankets went to the Basic Need Store this past week.

Christmas Wrap, etc. – following Ms. Helen’s death, her family gave the church Christmas paper, bags, boxes, ribbons, etc. They are on a pew in the basement for members to take if they wish. Help yourself, but don’t take more than you need – share. There are also some non-Christmas items: Any items remaining on Dec. 20th goes to a thrift store.

Birth Announcement – Last Sunday at about 2:15 pm. God blessed Dan and Freda with a grandson, Nolan Lee Kramer. He entered the world screaming, according to his dad. He weighed 5lbs 5oz and is 18 inches long. Mom, Shannon and Nolan are doing well. Praise and thanks to God that all went well.
