Pastor's Letter to the Church

Dear Church,


    It’s fall! The exclamation point was put in for those of you who love fall. As for me, I like summer! Normally this newsletter would be FULL of upcoming events. But alas, this is not the case this year. Dumb Covid! Now I realize that there are MANY differing opinions on this topic. However, the Evangelism Team has decided to use caution in regard to the Chili/Pea Soup supper.
    Even with the many differing opinions, I am praying that as you pray about this, you will back the mission of the Evangelism Team by supporting missions financially as you have done in the past. The good news is that you don’t have to wait tables, make tortes, stir peas. The bad news is you don’t get the fun of waiting tables, making tortes and stirring peas. I am praying that as you pray about this, you will see that it is the GIVING that is more important than the social time.
    Last year, as a church, we raised thousands of dollars to be able to give to these local, state and worldwide missions.
 Gift cards to our church families in need during Covid
 Three local food banks
 The Salvation Army for food and shelter for those in need
 Milwaukee Rescue Mission
 Project Angel Hugs
 Northcott Neighborhood House
 Our mission family in the Dominican Republic
    Right now as you read this, you question “How much should I give?” I have the answer! How much did it cost you to make a torte? How much did you spend to bring your family and feed them? Start there! How many hours did you spend working at this event in past years? Suppose you consider your time worth $5 an hour, then if you cooked, stirred, waited tables, chopped veggies for a total of 4 hours, then at $5 an hour, you could consider giving the $20. If you are worth more than $5 an hour, and you all are…
    I know we all miss the fun we’ve had over the years. I know that we want the old normal back. I do too. However right now this is not an option. So I am praying that you will support the tough decisions that have been made, that you will answer God’s call to give money to missions. I am praying that you continue to be filled with God’s Grace as we move forward in this time in history. Hey Church, let’s be in His service together!


Love,

 

 


Pastor Denise

Matthew 6: 1 - 4 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. 2 When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. 3 But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. 4 Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
