Giving to Missions - "a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God."
Philippians 4:18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
Philippians 4 -- King James Version
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction. 15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. 17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Ultimately, God can be trusted, especially with our souls eternal destiny. Do not delay in placing your faith and trust in the name of the One who loves us and gave himself a ransom for those that believe, the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Church Services News and Updates
1.) Semi-Annual Meeting – went very well! We are in a good position financially, praise the Lord! One item of business was the passing of a motion by the board that the amount they can spend before coming to the members for a vote should be raised from $1000 to $3000. It was carried unanimously. The board appreciates the confidence that the church family has place in their leadership.
