A Message from the Stewardship Team

for God has done marvelous things.
Let the floods clap their hands; 
let the hills sing together for joy.”

Do you care about creation in this time of global warming? Do you see a connection between environmental stewardship and the Christian faith? You are invited to join in a 5-part study on consecutive Wednesdays at 1 p.m. through November 18.  We are using resources from a series called Being Reformed, and our class title is Stewardship of Creation.  Please contact the church office to sign up.
