“To be a Christian is giving oneself and one's possessions entirely into the service of God as an act of faith.” Rev. Harry Coiner
This year, in conjunction with attempts to update our directory, we are requesting that you take time to fill out the Time/Talent/Treasure sheets. We did this back in November, but, those sheets were accidentally misplaced, likely recycled, and for that we apologize. In an effort not simply to update our records but to give people a chance to take the time in the privacy of their home to consider the ways God has gifted them, the form can either be completed online, dowloaded and emailed to Dan Heavrin (firstname.lastname@example.org), or the forms can be picked up and filled out at Redeemer. If you have any questions feel free to contact Dan Heavrin or Pastor Matt.
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21
When our Lord Christ speaks these words He clearly has in view the relationship that His disciples have with money. However, it would be a mistake to think that money is the only thing that could be considered a treasure, especially when one takes into account the wider context of the Sermon on the Mount. The call to discipleship is one that encompasses the whole person, all that you are and all that you have.
