Stewardship makes some of us quake in shoes, thinking that we will be required to give up something that we really need. Let me put your mind at rest. God wants us to give out of abundance, not out of our fear. He will never ask of you something that He hasn’t already given to you.

That’s why the scriptures says in 2 Corinthians 9:7. “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.”

 

A NOTE FROM PASTOR CHERYL

As you listen to the testimonies in Church this stewardship month, take time to thank God for the gifts that He has given you and has allowed you to share with others.

Pray 1, Stich 2 Ministry

Every Wednesday Morning, a group of women

get together to spend an hour or two knitting Lap Blankets and Prayer Shawls for those hurting, sick or need a little piece of TLC to wrap themselves in.

These women lovingly and faithfully make these items that are prayed over and then sent out to bless others.

Thank you Ladies for using your gifts and talents that God has given you to bring joy to others and brighten up the lives of those who receive them.

If you would like to know more about this knitting group or would like to donated unused/clean yarn, please see Jeanne Roberts or you may call the church office at: 860-745-5211

 


Have you or someone you know lost a loved one?

A starting date decision of when you like this pledge to start gives you the options of now ….and should read:  January 2022 NOT January 2021.

There you will find..great Fellowship Time, Delicious Hot Coffee and maybe even a yummy treat.

We need Volunteers for a few minutes before and after service to help set up table, make coffee and clean up afterwards.

THE POWER OF PRAYER TESTIMONY

I AM A LIVING EXAMPLE OF WHAT PRAYER CAN DO.

On 7/11, I had a brain aneurysm and 4 strokes.  I was in a coma for 2 weeks and was on a breathing tube. 

The doctors didn’t give me much chance of survival.   But, I did.  My PCP called me a miracle!

I don’t know much of what went on, only what my family and friends have told me. 

They cried and prayed along with many others.  I was fortunate to have so many people praying for me. 

My daughter, Taryn, say’s it was prayer that pulled me through.

All I can say is Thank You to all who prayed for me and guided the doctor’s hands.  AMEN

 Edie Heeber
