Stewardship Thought

December 11, 2016 - "You too must be patient. Make your hearts firm, because the coming of the Lord is at hand." -- James 5:8

Patience is another one of those things many of us struggle with. We want things to go according to our plan and our schedule. Any change brings anxiety and fear. Through daily prayer we better align ourselves with God's will and His plan, which is far better than anything we can come up with on our own.

Ministering to the HomeboundIf you are aware of anyone who is homebound and in need or desire of our support, or who is in need of the Sacrament of the Sick or Communion, please contact the church office at 330-296-6434

Prayer List Should you desire to have someone placed on the prayer list or receive a monthly list to pray for, please contact Roberta Held at 330-296-4093. Again, thank you to everyone who offers their ministry of prayer.
