You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold, 19but with the precious blood of
Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. 20He was destined before the
foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of the ages for your sake.
Through him you have come to trust in God, who raised him from the dead and gave
him glory, so that your faith and hope are set on God. — 1st Peter 1:18-21 (NRSV)

Attention Ministry Leaders!

A reminder for all ministries and ministry leaders—Please
e-mail to Stephanie ([email protected]) your monthly
reports and items you’d like to be on the Church Council agenda
by the 10th of each month. These reports will be consolidated
into an agenda for the monthly Church Council meetings. Each
ministry leader/chair will receive reports from every ministry
and an agenda prior to the Council meeting so we can better prepare for the Council meetings and be more efficient with the
time we have available.
