Offering: Promises & Signs

Invitation

There are many signs we claim for our faith but ultimately it is our active love that reveals who we worship. As the plate comes around commit to give of your whole selves. Give of your talents and material possessions to the Church with the expectation that they be used to further God’s dream for our world.  Please commit yourself and give as you’re able. TG

Dedication

Divine One:

We promise to use these gifts for good. We promise to use these gifts in furthering God ’s realm.
We commit to using these gifts in love and mercy for others.
Amen. 

Tim is a runner, a hiker, a devoted husband, a father of two adult children, and their spouses, and a grandfather of four perfect children. A former early childhood educator, Tim is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He has served as pastor of both Disciples and United Church of Christ congregations. As we enter what we hope is the final phase of the pandemic, Tim is beginning a journey of rediscovering himself and discerning next steps. He writes from his home in Albany, Oregon and wherever the Spirit lures him.
