Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we are thankful for the Holy Sprit that you left to comfort us, but also to convict us. We can lie to you even as we lie to ourselves, but your Holy Spirit is the only true mirror we have, and He lives inside us showing every day who we really are. Teach us how to deny ourselves daily because we want to live not just for today, but for eternity! Show us how to be content with what we have. We want to honor you like the widow whose great faith GAVE first. Help us to understand that what we DO have is meant to be given away in order to glorify you. Help us to be confident that our giving multiplies, and always remember to give our first fruits to you. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Reminders/Announcements

2021-2022 Financial News
The company which provides our offering envelopes has notified us of a production delay which impacts our ability to provide the envelopes to you in early January. At this time, the earliest estimated arrival is late January. Once we receive these, they will be placed on tables in the Welcome Center for pick up. There are My Offering envelopes in the pew pockets which can be used until you receive your envelopes.

HOPE ROOM NEWS
The Hope Room is not accepting donations at this time. We will be processing all your recently donated items in order to start getting ready for Spring. We are still open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays so our community can stock up on warm winter clothing. We are so thankful for the generosity of our church members!
