God gives us the goal to give 10% of what we earn for the worship of our God. This can be a great challenge when we balance our income with all the demands on our money. If you’re not tithing 10% try to challenge yourself to give a little more than you did before.
Paying bills isn't sexy, but the general budget means that as a church we can pay our bills and fund our ministry to remain a places where people can come to experience God's grace and love in worship and in community.

Pastoral Care and Visits: Reminder that Pastor Beth is available for pastoral care and visits: if you are sick, in the hospital, in jail, or otherwise just need a listening ear. If you wish to talk with her or have her visit you, let Pr. Beth know. If you don’t tell her, she won’t know! Don’t assume that Pr Beth will just find out or guess that you want to visit. You can contact her in case of emergency by calling. Otherwise, you can contact her via text message, phone call, or email and she will get back to you as soon as possible.
