MT. SINAI’S ANNOUNCEMENTS

Stewardship: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse” (Malachi 3:10), is god’s command…We are but stewards, and on the discharge of our obligation to God and man depend both the welfare of our fellow beings and our own destiny for this life and for the life to come. – Education, pp 138,139.

  • Donate toys to a children’s hospital.
  • Take treats to the fire or police station
  • Put money in the Salvation Army bucket.

The month of December has been designated as “Square Up with God” month. We are all called to “square up” with God in our Christian Stewardship. Let’s “square up” in our Time – Church attendance, Talents – Church service, and Treasury – Church giving (Tithe and Combined Budget). Remember, “You can’t beat God giving no matter how you try.”
