Our offering today is for Friendship Ministries.Friendship Ministries is a not-for-profit organization that exists to help churches and organizations around the world share God’s love with people who have intellectual disabilities. Their mission is to provide resources that support faith formation and congregational inclusion for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Their vision is people with and without intellectual disabilities growing deeper in their relationship with God and with each other in community together.

The next Sunday, August 26th, our offering will be for the Canadian FoodGrains Bank. CFGB’s goal is a world without hunger. They work toward this goal by: providing food in times of crisis for hungry people in the developing world; helping people grow more food to better feed themselves and their families; and providing nutritional support to malnourished people with a focus on pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and young children. They also advocate for public policies that enable families and communities to better feed themselves, and look for ways to engage and educate Canadians about global hunger.

Food for Thought:

 There's a line in the popular song My Story and it reads: "If I should speak then let it be of the grace that is greater than all my sin." We can never out-sin God's grace! So let your heart rejoice in the joy of His Salvation, and sing to Him, for He has been good to you. Psalm 13:5,6

Next Sunday, August 26th 

Our focus will be on 2 Corinthians 8:13-15 and Exodus 16:17-25. What would a society be like if it worked off of the principles we find in the manna story? Paul refers to the story of God providing manna in his appeal for giving. Are there principles in the manna story that apply to our stewardship? Pastor Steve will lead us in worship.
