Time, Talents and Treasures

WriteThe council decided to have the Stewardship tables before and after church (similar to the picture table) on March 26th and April 2nd. 

We will be visiting with people before and after church to see what ways they can help the church with their time, talents, and treasures.

Two Forms which youi may wish to Download and a third to pick up at the Stewardship Table:

  • The Time, Talents and Treasures Survey Form (PDF) - Fill it out and bring it with you to Church.  Additional copies will be available at the Stewardship Table.
  • Ministering Through Meals (PDF) - Interested in cooking for the Students?  This handy little Tri-fold brochure gives you many tips and hints.
  • Pledge Cards - Pledge cards will be available at the Stewardship Table as well.  Filling these out gives our Council valuable information for planning for this coming fiscal year.
It's Going to be a WOW Sunday!

LightingWhen you arrive at Church this coming Sunday, take a look around and see some amazing things that have happened over the past few weeks.

            "The Dimensions of our Discontent"

            Do you find yourself often discontented with life and with the world? Is your discontent necessarily a bad thing for people of faith? We keep searching for something to content us. We keep searching for some "it" that will make all of life fit together sensibly and peacefully.  We will explore that in our mid-week Lenten worship. We will use Marty Haugen and Susan Briehl's service, "Unfailing Light" for worship.1
