Sunday is the day! We'll begin the Matthew 25 Challenge as a church this Sunday, September 15th. We'll explain the challenge and help you sign up to receive the daily devotions and actions in Sunday's worship service. Next week (Sept 22) in worship we'll hear stories from our own congregation about how the challenge impacted them. Next week we'll also finish up our collection for The Big Give (shopping lists are still available in front of the big window), have an opportunity to learn more about what God is doing in our world in the gym during the 9:00am and 10:30am hours, share lunch in the gym together at 11:45am, and sort all the food for the Big Give.
