Fruit of Friendship – Friendship Planted
 
Life is sweet just because of the friends we have made
and the things which in common we share;
We want to live on not because of ourselves,
but because of the people who care;
It's giving and doing for somebody else-
on that all life's splendor depends,
And the joy of this world, when you've summed it all up,
is found in the making of friends.

    The Prestige
    Every magic trick has three parts, the pledge, the turn, and the prestige where we are told what is about to happen then the challenge of the trick occurs followed by the trick coming full circle and the magic worked before our eyes. A magic trick happens among us. None of us are worthy to come to the communion table. None of us are worthy to be called God's people. But, as God opens up the table to us through the promise and sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, we become his body. That is the great Prestige

    Launching Counter Confusion
    "Left-handed power...is precisely paradoxical power: power that looks like weakness, intervention that seems indistinguishable from nonintervention
    The only thing it does insure is that you will not...have made the mistake of closing any interpersonal doors from your side."

    Advent Big Give 2018
    Our members share stories from their Big Give projects and outreach. These groups of compassion sought to do good for the immediate needs around us. These testimonies illustrate that the places where we dwell are strategic places for mission and that God blesses us in order for us to be a blessing to others.

    Generosity Begins with Love
    Do not accumulate wealth while millions are hungry. Do not take as the aim of your life, fame, profit, wealth, or sensual pleasure. Live simply and share time, energy, opportunity, and material resources with those who are in need.

    Hospitality Begins with Love
    2 Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers[a] came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
    5 Beloved, it is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers, strangers as they are, 6 who testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God. 7 For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. 8 Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.
    3 John 1:2-8
