Today was a thanks filled day of stewardship as we brought before God not only our financial gifts but those of time and talent as well. We were blessed to have the Rev. Dr. David Abbott in our midst preaching the sermon and giving the children’s story. Rev. Abbott is the Director of Stewardship with the United Methodist Foundation of New England. http://www.umfne.org/
He gave an excellent stewardship message about giving out of thanksgiving not out of obligation. He challenged us to give in response to and thankfulness for all that God has done in our lives today and yesterday.
Our Worship service was followed by a Consecration Day picnic at the Lanphear’s farm. It was great fun with lots of delicious food, fellowship, hayrides and some very spirited cornhole games!
