A Note from Pastor Ann

"If we have food and clothing, we will be content with that." 1 Timothy 6:8


 Some people are happy to live a simple life. But more and more often, we seem to want greater excitement, more clothes, more entertainment, a

more thrilling existence.

The apostle’s encouragement in the verse above challenges us to be content with the basics. If God grants us more, as He often does by giving us good health of body and mind so we can work and learn, to say nothing of windfalls, we have all the more reason to be thankful. We show our

gratitude by sharing our surplus with the needy. We give to the needy in our church offering which goes to the synod, with our food pantry donations, contributions made to the quilters and the work of the quilters.


The most wonderful gift is our salvation, forgiveness, new life and peace, all gifts of God.


Let us be grateful for all God has done and continues to do for us and for God’s good pleasure.
