Pioneer Offering for March 6

The Church Operating Offering provides funding for church ministries, Sabbath School expense, staff salaries, utilities & janitorial, emergency assistance, public address system, repairs & maintenance, children's ministries, office equipment & supplies, insurance, publications, public relations, and our website.

If you benefit from any of the above-listed items, this fund would be an important one to include in your plan for faithful stewardship.  As important as keeping heat and light on in our homes is the necessity for doing the same for God’s house that we share.   And just as He is faithful to help us with the costs at home, He will help us to share in this responsibility.  Even when we have difficulties with finances at home, faithfulness to Him puts us in a position to be blessed.

Deuteronomy 8:11 - "And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth."

Philippians 4:19 - "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
