here’s to the givers

Dear friends,

So many of you give so much in so many ways to our community. From those who have been here the longest, those we like to think of as the pillars of the church, to those who have recently joined us and signed up to serve in different ways — our children’s work, our music, our meals, our work among the poor, none of this would be possible without the sincere and joyful efforts of the whole church family. If you haven’t signed up yet and want to get involved, here’s our You Come, You Serve form.

Many of you also give financially, and we want to say a big thank you to all those who responded to the Council’s request through September. We have noticed a sharp increase in financial giving in recent months and although Alex and I don’t know who is giving what, we are very grateful and are encouraged to continue all our different ministries.

From Christ the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

(Ephesians 4:16 New International Version)

Lots of love,

Mark and Alex
