Living Generously – Oct. 2 – Combined Service at 10 a.m.

What we leave behind is what we give, not what we take.

On October 2 there will be a combined service at 10 a.m. Everyone is invited afterwards for a pancake brunch.

Our giving changes lives  and there will be some short talks on Saint Paul’s ministries talking about the work our church has supported. There will also be a presentation on how to use technology to create your own cell phone app, to access the parish directory, and manage your giving.

One person said giving is not transactional – “We do not listen to WII FM, that is ‘What’s In It For Me.'” We give because it makes a difference. Don’t miss this pancake breakfast on living generously.

“The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” ~ 2 Corinthians 9: 6-7
We have a new app called “Church Life” to make online giving even easier!
