Let’s pray together this week:

Lord, You are the giver of all things. If through Jesus' death and resurrection You have provided for our salvation, will You not also provide all that we need as we run the race You have set before each of us in this life? Help us to view our worldly possessions through the eyes of one living in Your Kingdom in the here and now; eyes that are focused on You and You alone. Amen.

A tree was removed by the Buildings & Grounds committee from the greenspace south of the parsonage. There is plenty of firewood available for free located on the southside of the church garage. Please help yourself. There are some smaller pieces and some larger pieces that may need some chopping before transporting. Whatever is not gone by the end of October will be put in the dumpster.
