This Weekend in Worship:
Preacher: Steve Knudson
Sermon: “Giving in Gratitude”
Jesus helps us consider God's blessings and how we live our lives in the context of God's blessings by telling us, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." A heart of gratitude reflects God at the center of our lives and the one who continues to give, bringing grace and life through the crucified and risen Christ. As disciples of Christ, God is the focal point, or as Jesus says, our "treasure." A heart of gratitude acknowledges and celebrates in thanksgiving this important truth for our lives and giving.
