The Spotlight
Dear Friends, I really hope that you will join me in worship in the coming weeks for a sermon series entitled Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity. Our nation is experiencing what many have described as the "American Nightmare." Increasing consumer debt, declines in savings, lower income growth, rising housing costs, and a volatile stock market are all contributing to economic insecurity. We live in a society that tells us "you deserve it now," whether or not we can afford it or really even need it. I'm sure we've all struggled with these issues at one time or another. I know that I have.
During the month of October, we are going to explore what the Bible teaches us about financial management. We'll look at what others have learned by working through financial challenges and watch some informative video clips. Each week I'll be providing you with some tools you can use to assess your financial situation and develop a financial plan with a biblical foundation. These are important issues that we cannot ignore. I hope you will join me as we look at how we can manage our financial resources and truly experience that God is "Enough." In Christ, Pastor Eric Smith
