Message from Pastor Kim: Defined by Generosity
        These past four weeks have been a meaningful time in the life of our congregation. We have explored how we can manage our financial resources and truly experience simplicity, generosity, and joy. And we have responded to all that we have learned by setting personal goals and making commitments. Last Sunday, we consecrated our commitments of giving to support God's work through our church.
        If you have already made your estimate of giving, thank you. If you have not yet had an opportunity to do so, it's not too late. Simply drop your commitment card in the mail, bring it by the church office, or put it the offering plate during any worship service. If you need another card, extras are available outside the sanctuary and church office.  If you were unable to be with us last Sunday you can view the sermon, "Defined by Generosity," online at
        We are grateful for your financial support of our church. Your giving in the coming year will make a difference in the lives of children, youth, and adults in our church, as well as in the lives of people everywhere we are in mission and ministry in the world.
