 Help us Celebrate Grandparents Day on September 8, 2019

Grandparents Day is a holiday that is celebrated the first Sunday after Labor Day and is used to celebrated both maternal and paternal grandparents.

The statue making Grandparents Day a holiday lists the three purposes which are: 1) to commemorate and pay respect to grandparents, 2) to recognize the importance that older people can have on the lives of the young, and 3) to give said grandparents the opportunity to show love and support for their children’s children.

We invite you to help us celebrate this special day by telling us about one or more of your grandparents and their importance and impact on your life. There are bulletin inserts for you to fill out and return to the church or use as a guide if you would like to email something.

Also, why not take this special time to invite your grandparent or your grandchild to worship with you. Who knows maybe there will be some extra special “Blessings” flowing.

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT

Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren. Proverbs 13:22

Many people are reluctant to draw up a will.  At a subconscious level, they fear that as soon as they do, they’ll “cash in their chips”.  In scripture long life is one of God’s promises to us: “Fear of the Lord lengthens one’s life”.  So with that in mind, here’s an important question for you to answer, sooner rather than later. If you died tomorrow would your money, your home, your furnishings, your clothing and your valuables go to the people you intended?  The best way to be certain is to sit down now while you’re in good health and sound mind and write down what you want to leave and to whom. Do you want to leave a certain amount to your family or your church or a ministry or charity you believe in? If you do, call a lawyer and have it clearly spelled out in a legal document.  Don’t leave a mess, that’ll mean more work for the courts, more taxes for the government and a legacy of disappointment and confusion for your loved ones. Your stewardship doesn’t end at the grave. Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren.
