Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. II Corinthians 9:7
In 2016 we will focus on the future of our faith with service, commitment, and community. This past year has been challenging for our church. We now are moving forward with rebuilding our youth program, strengthening our membership, expanding our service to others, and growing spiritually. Neighborhood Church is what we make it with God’s guidance. Help us to fulfill the needs of your heart and God’s.
Our 2016 Mission Spending Plan includes:
- Worship: Focusing our faith in and through the worship of God.
- Music Ministry: Music worship that touches the soul & challenges the mind
- Pastoral Care: Caring for our Church family
- Teaching & Nurturing: Environment for children & youth helping to shape their lives
- Outreach: Reaching our wider community
- Wedding Ministry: Connecting with couples at a major life transition
- Welcome: Joyously welcoming all
- Administration & Facilities: Faithful stewards of the Church
The rewards of generosity are immeasurable and life changing. Taken together, small changes can become big changes by sharing our gifts and taking the ministry of Jesus into the world.
