16 We owe our very lives to God, and we celebrate that we have so much to be thankful for this year 16 “In these troubling times, we feel it is more important than ever to support First Church which provides so much; its youth programs, mission outreach to so many, small groups which encourage community and learning, inspiring and challenging sermons, beautiful music, to name a few. Our church encourages our love for God and each other and helps us keep perspective in a broken world” Lynda and Chuck Kraemer “In these troubling times, we feel it is more important than ever to support First Church which provides so much; its youth programs, mission outreach to so many, small groups which encourage community and learning, inspiring and challenging sermons, beautiful music, to name a few.

As Luke 12:48 says, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be expected.” Giving is indeed a Christian privilege.
