Stewardship 2018 – It is time again for each of us to focus on God’s gifts to us and on the countless blessings that, through his grace, we enjoy. It is Stewardship time again, and soon you will be receiving a letter from me as Stewardship Chair enclosing a pledge card for you to fill out and return to the Church for its support during the coming year. We are blessed to have outside income that keeps our lights on and our doors open. However, that should in no way lessen our individual gifts which are in thanksgiving for our blessings. Please give prayerful consideration to your gift when the letter comes. Everyone is needed. – Bill Bridgforth
