Deacons are in need of JAM for the peanut butter & JAM sandwiches we make for Sister Jean’s guests.  Donations of JAM can be left in the kitchen and labeled for Sister Jean.  (In case you didn’t notice JAM is preferred over jelly.  Thank you.)

The weeds in our church flower beds have been growing faster than our one or two volunteers are able to pull them.  If you would like to be added to our list of gardeners please call the office.

If you would like to donate flowers to decorate the altar on any Sunday please fill in the Altar Flower order form found by the Altar Flower Chart in the vestibule and return it to the church office with payment.  Be sure to reserve your date on the chart so others know that week is taken.  (The office can not order flowers without the information on the form and payment.)

Planting the Seed – Read 1 Corinthians 3:5-11

Many years ago the members of my church gave me a Bible, acknowledging my graduation from the fourth grade Sunday school class. My family did not regularly attend church, but my mother always made sure that I was in Sunday school. I am sad to say that the Bible given to me remained in its box for 20 years. The seed planted by this congregation and my mother took two decades to germinate, but now it is growing.

Today I have a wonderful Christian wife who has continued to water the seed. We are planting the seed in our toddler son. I live in a vibrant relationship with Christ, and I am an active participant in my church's ministries. The Bible presented to me by a loving congregation over 30 years ago is now tattered and worn, but is one of my most precious possessions. I read from it each morning during my devotional time.

The Apostle Paul once wrote to the church in Corinth that it did not matter who was teaching them because the growth of the seed within them would come from God. Although it may not grow in our time, the true seed will grow in God's time. We continue planting the seed by spreading God's word, trusting God to bring the fruit.
