    It is that time of year again when we discuss our stewardship in the church. Pastor Allan presents to us the state of our church and talks about strategies for tithing and how to move to offering a full tithe. When we faithfully tithe and trust in God's provision, we allow our selves to be open to God's blessing; for ourselves and our families, as well as within the church.

    Hot Spots – Rev. Allan Brooks – Exodus 3_1-3
    Series: Pentecost
    The one connection we are concerned with on a daily basis is whether our phones have service or not. We have become a society that is dependent on WIFI access, or being able to have LTE. When we do not have those connections, we desperately search for a hot spot. When it comes to needing internet on our tablets or laptops, we set up that hot spot on our phones. How about your connection with God? Do you have full bars with LTE or are you in need of a hot spot? When was the last time you were at your hot spot?

    Jars of Clay – Rev. Allan Brooks – 2 Corinthians 4:6-9
    Series: Pentecost
    Jars of clay, human vessels, containing the knowledge of God's glory and conduits of the Holy Spirit. We are fragile and improper containers for this gift from God, prone to breaking; prone to getting things wrong. And yet, herein lies one of the great mysteries of God, that we should be the perfect vessels for this gift, to the magnification of God's glory. This is the beauty of the church. Imperfect? Yes. But, chosen and used for the glory of God's design.
