We hope that you will find this as a way to make your contributions easier.

Stewardship Moment-Psalm 34:10

Those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.  Have you lost your job? Is there a possibility of you losing your home or going bankrupt? Are you in the toughest place you have ever been?  Paul said “God will supply all your need.” Those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.  Stand on God’s word today and declare: Lord, You said if I’m willing and obedient, I will enjoy the best You have to offer.  We each have to ask ourselves, are we being obedient and do we trust God with our whole heart? Are we good stewards for Him and His church?  If the answer is No, you can begin to make some changes today.  Try moving towards a more fulfilled life of stewardship. You will be blessed.  (Excerpts from The Word for You Today)
