Local Announcments

Announcements: July 7, 2018
Today’s Offering: How much of our offerings cost us relatively little or nothing? We place a dollar or two in the offering plate and think we have done God a great service. Let’s give sacrificially this morning.
After the communion service today we will take up an offering for the Good Samaritan Fund. This money is used for helping church members in severe financial need. You may donate at any time by simply specifying such on your offering envelope. Please remember our church budget needs as well. We have a large ministry here in our own community.

 “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”                     Romans 13:11, 12
