    “When you read the scriptures, what are your expectations
    of the Holy Spirit? What do you expect the Holy Spirit will
    accomplish when you gather for worship? What are the hopes
    and the hurts, the fears and the faith of those who live in the community around the congregation?” “We have all that we need – God’s promise. So we begin by listening.”

  • Do you know that the sound of coins clinking on the offering plates is really the sound of children receiving a meal? That’s because all the loose change in the offering plates goes towards WORLD HUNGER. Why not start a NOISY OFFERING JAR at home and bring it to church once a month? That surely would be
    a JOYFUL NOISE!!
