Its Time
This week Pastor Ralph shared with us about how Christmas is more than just opening gifts and spending time with family. The presents we get on Christmas will most likely be broken or forgotten by next year. Christmas is about God sending us his son Jesus, to give us the everlasting gift of salvation. Jesus came at the right place and the right time. The gift he brought is free to everyone.

    Series: Stewardship
    This week Pastor Ralph talked about how we should view money. He shared that being poor doesn't make you more Godly or a better person. It's not about what you have or don't have, but it is about worshiping a God who gives all things. The bible tells the rich to be generous with their money. The love of money is what is evil. So whether you are rich or poor, we all need to be aware of our attitude towards money.
