Pioneer Operating Budget

Smells can bring a flood of memories to your brain.

A special family recipe can spark a whole host of thoughts and emotions as it passes through your home if someone is making a meal. There are recipes that my mother and my grandmother have made, that still bring me joy when we get together and they are cooked for the family. One thing I am still mastering is the art of making good bread. I love the smell of fresh-baked, homemade bread, and it is always something that I look forward to making.

What has brought even more joy is involving my children in the baking process, when it is possible. Baking and cooking are skills that can be taught and learned. Similarly, our church has a rich heritage of passing along the lessons we know in order to build up the next generation.

The Bible encourages teaching and sharing what we know! “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others” (2 Timothy 2:2, NIV).

Ministries such as Sabbath School classes help us connect and better know the “recipe” for a better life in Christ, and how to practically live out our Christianity outside of these church walls. Today’s offering is for our local church budget, which supports ministries such as Sabbath school.

BELONG Ministries Adopt-a-Student

 Winter is coming and for many of our students these are the hardest months to get through without their families. You can help create a home away from home by joining our Belong Ministries Adopt-a-Student program. You'll build meaningful connections by hosting the student for a home cooked meal, surprising them with their favorite treats, and reminding them that they've been prayed for. The time commitment is at your discretion.
