What temptations lure us from the path of discipleship? Possessions, pride, power? So much in our consumer society tempts us. The beauty of stewardship, as a way of life, is that it enables the Christian steward to resist the temptations of excessive consumerism and materialism. Not that these in and of themselves are bad. They are bad only when they get in the way of our discipleship. Stewardship enables us to discern between needs and wants and thus brings a measure of balance to our lives. This Lenten season let us pray that we may live responsibly and possess sensibly.

coffee time…

We are still looking for volunteers to donate baking for our coffee time after the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. Thank you so much to those who have made  baking contributions!

weekly announcements…

Any congregation member who wishes to have an announcement made on a Sunday is asked to give a written copy of the announcement to Canon Condo at least fifteen minutes prior to the service. Canon Condo will, in turn, make these announcements each week prior to the start of the Sunday service.
