27  These all look to you,
to give them their food in due season.
28  When you give it to them, they gather it up;
when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.

Financial Update

Thanks be to God, for the offerings over the last two years have kept us in the black with so many challenges.

Thanks be to God, for the opportunity to keep Messiah Lutheran’s Members informed of our work together.

Thanks be to God, for this last week and the faithful stewards who have stepped up to help us with gifts.

We are out of the ‘RED ZONE’ which put some fear and trembling into our treasurer.  We have had several significant gifts, and quite of few faithful stewards stepping up at this time.

We are in a cautious ‘yellow zone’ where we need to continue to bathe our ministry in prayer and keep up the faithful stewardship.

And ABOVE all… Trust our God, that He has this in control!
