Offering

We thank you for your heart-felt generosity and sacrifice in giving. God is the ultimate giver who gave the most precious gift imaginable - His Son Jesus - to die on the cross for our sins. Our lives are transformed by the gospel of Christ. When we learn to give generously, it changes us, making us more like our generous Creator. In other words, generosity isn’t something God wants from you, it is something he wants for you.

Our Text to Give number is TEXTING ONLY.

This is a very easy way to use a credit or debit card: you simply text the dollar amount to this number, and if this is your first time, you will receive a text back with the link to complete a one-time set-up.

Note: If you try to place a voice call to this number, the message will say disconnected.

I've heard a thousand stories Of what they think You’re like But I've heard the tender whisper Of love in the dead of night You tell me that You’re pleased And that I'm never alone
You're a Good Good Father It's who You are It's who You are It's who You are And I'm loved by You It's who I am It's who I am It's who I am
I've seen many searching for answers Far and wide But I know we're all searching for answers Only You provide Because You know just what we need Before we say a word
You are perfect in all of Your ways You are perfect in all of Your ways You are perfect in all of Your ways to us
Love so undeniable I can hardly speak Peace so unexplainable I can hardly think As You call me deeper still As You call me deeper still As You call me deeper still Into love love love

Scripture

1 Hear what the Lord says: Arise, plead your case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice. 2 Hear, you mountains, the indictment of the Lord, and you enduring foundations of the earth, for the Lord has an indictment against his people, and he will contend with Israel. 3 “O my people, what have I done to you? How have I wearied you? Answer me! 4 For I brought you up from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam. 5 O my people, remember what Balak king of Moab devised, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the righteous acts of the Lord.” What Does the Lord Require? 6 “With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? 7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?” 8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

1-2 Listen now, listen to God: “Take your stand in court. If you have a complaint, tell the mountains; make your case to the hills. And now, Mountains, hear God’s case; listen, Jury Earth— For I am bringing charges against my people. I am building a case against Israel. 3-5 “Dear people, how have I done you wrong? Have I burdened you, worn you out? Answer! I delivered you from a bad life in Egypt; I paid a good price to get you out of slavery. I sent Moses to lead you— and Aaron and Miriam to boot! Remember what Balak king of Moab tried to pull, and how Balaam son of Beor turned the tables on him. Remember all those stories about Shittim and Gilgal. Keep all God’s salvation stories fresh and present.” 6-7 How can I stand up before God and show proper respect to the high God? Should I bring an armload of offerings topped off with yearling calves? Would God be impressed with thousands of rams, with buckets and barrels of olive oil? Would he be moved if I sacrificed my firstborn child, my precious baby, to cancel my sin? 8 But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don’t take yourself too seriously— take God seriously.

I, the Lord of sea and sky I have heard My people cry All who dwell in deepest sin My hand will save I who made the stars of night I will make their darkness bright Who will bear My light to them? Whom shall I send?
Here I am Lord, Is it I, Lord? I have heard You calling in the night I will go Lord, if You lead me I will hold Your people in my heart
I, the Lord of snow and rain I have borne my people's pain I have wept for love of them they turn away I will break their hearts of stone Give them hearts for love alone I will speak My word to them Whom shall I send?
I, the Lord of wind and flame I will tend the poor and lame I will set a feast for them My hand will save Finest bread I will provide Till their hearts be satisfied I will give My life to them Whom shall I send?

Many of us participated in the annual Chili Cook-Off last Sunday. We very prominently contributed to the contest, and took the top prize for the Meat chilis (Sam Bowland and Bob Shiels tied).

The other catgories were vegetarian and speciality, and there was a lot of variety. The event was well so well attended, we ran out of chili!
