What If?

What if? That phrase can strike fear in all of our hearts and minds as we consider all the things that could go wrong in our world, especially when it comes to our finances. Security is one of our basic needs, and thinking about all the “what if’s” can cause panic and anxiety when we think about future plans. But what if the “what if” question wasn’t as much about fear, but about possibility? What if when we trust God, then God can do far more with what we give, in our lives and in the lives of others, than we could possibly imagine or do on our own? Join us for our stewardship sermon series, What If? where we’ll be imagining what God would do through us if we would really trust God with what we have been blessed with.

Oh, but my darling what if you fly?” (Luke 9:10-17)
