I hope you are participating in the many online opportunities provided by First Church! I certainly found comfort and reassurance when I watched First Church’s worship services this past Sunday. I cannot begin to count how many times I have recited the Affirmation which begins, “We are not alone; we live in God’s world.”
I attended the annual Polar Express party last night. I found joy in greeting our young guests and giving them their Polar Express golden train ticket which of course had to be punched by our very own train conductor, Dr. Mike Marshall (who needs Tom Hanks when you have Dr. Marshall after all).
If you have seen this week’s Moment with Mike, “bless your heart” for having to endure me towards the end of the segment. I asked if I could join him on this week’s segment to give a brief Stewardship Campaign update coupled with my appreciation.
The formal aspect of the 2020 Imagine Annual Stewardship Campaign concluded last Sunday. Over the last four weeks, our pastors and worship team knocked it out of the park. They shared their personal stories on giving and challenged us to think about how our relationship with money influences our stewardship.
