November Challenge – Tithing Our Whole Lives

It’s not too late to join us for the Tithe Your Whole Life November Challenge! You still have some time to pray about this opportunity and commit to testing God by giving a 10th of your time and gifts to God for the month of November. Bring a brown bag lunch and join us this Tuesday, November 7th at noon in the Atrium to learn more! We’ll meet each Tuesday at noon during the month of November to share ideas, and to support and encourage one another as we seek to tithe our income and tithe our time by taking 80 minutes each day to love God and neighbor. We also have a Facebook group for accountability and for those who cannot make the noon meetings. If you missed Pastor Ashley’s sermon with all the details, visit to hear the whole challenge, and contact Pastor Ashley for more information, or 476-5818.
