Preparing for the Harvest/Dedication Card Package

Review the materials and prayerfully consider your RENEWED COMMITMENT to the Lord for 2016. On Sunday we are asking you to bring back the portion of the handout that ask for your prayerful reflections. We have raised two thoughts - what you are asking God to do for you in 2016 and what MORE you are planning to do for God in 2016. Again, complete that portion of the handout - detach it - and return it next Sunday as we collect them and PREPARE FOR THE HARVEST - IT'S TIME!
