These men will be punished most severely.” The Widow’s Offering 41 Jesus sat down opposite the place…

Precious

What am I thankful for today? That question is usually so difficult for me to answer specifically. Of course I am thankful for my family! Of course I am thankful for my church and good friends! Of course I am thankful for food on the table!  Sometimes thankfulness feels generic, and sometimes it pierces me through the heart. As I’m writing, it’s doing the latter. Chris and I took our youngest son Noah to the ER last night. He has…

Giving

Giving and financial stewardship are vital parts of the life of any disciple of Jesus Christ. Of course, the church needs the financial support of those who are part of its ministry, but that is not the primary reason we give. More important than the ministry program’s need for funds is the Christian’s need to give. We believe that everything we own belongs to God and that God calls us to give back to him a significant portion of what He has entrusted to us. We do this primarily through our giving to the church, and regular, systematic giving is important as we live out our faith. Tithing (giving 10% of our income) or proportional giving is the practice that best demonstrates this practice.
