STEWARDSHIP SNIPPET – 1 Corinthians 2:4 – Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.  Everybody has strengths and talents. Steward/disciples know that we find optimal joy, peace and fulfillment when we are using them for Godly purposes. What are your gifts? How are you using them?

TEXAS IMPACT – Have you felt frustrated with decisions made at the Texas Capitol?

REQUEST FOR AUDITOR – You don’t need to be a CPA. If you’ve ever done accounting, bookkeeping or any form of finance; you are invited to speak with any Council member or the Finance Ministry team about doing our 2018 Church audit.  They will provide you with further information.  Please pray for your calling to serve in this capacity.  So many of us have valued skill sets which can be utilized to serving our congregation. I pray that there are members out there with these qualities. John Duarte
