Reflections- "I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ's return." -Philippians 1:9-10
The Pastor's Perspective
Thanksgiving offering- after only 3 weeks, we are over a third of our way to our goal of $15,000.00. The challenge is for each family to give $300 towards the repair of the church windows. You still have 2 months to save up for your offering. Or you can give anytime between now and the end of November. There are 9 Sundays in October/November. If you divide $300 by 9 you come up with $33.33 a week. If you give that amount extra each week, you will give $300 by the end of November.
Vision- This past spring I laid before us a vision that God impressed upon me to see our church double in size within 3 years. The vision is already becoming a reality. We have seen an 18% increase in attendance during the month of September! I believe that exciting things are happening at Lebanon. Invite someone to join us.
The Story- read chapter 5 for this Sunday. Read The Story and you will experience The Bible, God's story of his love for us.
