PRAYERS OF HEALING for Ted Stark Jr, Jeanne Mastain, Penny Anderson, Jane Boller.
From the Generosity Ministry Action Team:
GMAT (Generosity Ministry Action Team) is sharing the Bible foundation for giving. God created everything – Genesis 1:26-30. God is the owner of everything. That generosity inspires us as stewards, to manage what he has blessed us with. Stewarding God’s gifts isn’t a campaign - it’s a recurring "heart response" of overflowing gratitude for all God has given us - Jesus, eternal life, everything we are and do and possess. We pray for the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to stir every member of our church to see and feel a personal experience of abundance. This teaching and life application is for All of Us. We have a great opportunity and need for sharing to be done now. Every year, every month, every week, every day in gratefulness from All of Us.

Generosity Profile
We are so thankful to God's Garden who put on the wonderful 3pm Christmas Eve service puppet show on Saturday.  From the scripture readers, actors, puppeteers, and musicians, to the crowd-wranglers, set-up, clean-up, choreography, and parental/grandparental assistance, it was a beautiful and meaningful performance.  What talent and generosity we have in our midst!

Generous Ministry 
Thank you to the GMAT team for your 3 years of devoted service; you have done great work highlighting stories of generosity that can be shared with our congregation for years to come.  We appreciate all the time and talents given by Steve, Jonathon, John, Michelle, Jeff, Marissa, Susan, Michele, Jessica, Paul, Shelby, Jason, Cheryl, Nancy, and many Zoom-ins from staff and Council.  We all became more generous because of this ministry!
