Stewards Walking by Grace 






“Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to 

claim anything as coming from us, but our

sufficiency is from God” (2 Corinthians 3:5).


This is our second week of the stewardship emphasis Stewards Walking by Grace.  The theme for this week is “Having All Sufficiency.”  The world teaches us that we need to depend on our own sufficiency.  Through the lens of faith, we see God’s truth which enables us to see that we are not “sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God” (2 Corinthians 3:5).  God’s sufficiency is always sufficient.  Without God’s sufficiency, there is no forgiveness, no abundant life on earth, and no life eternal with Him.  By God’s grace, we can trust in God’s sufficiency as we walk as stewards by God’s grace. 


Church Facility Calendar

It is important to  check with the church office prior to deciding on a date for your ministry event or meeting, especially now as several ministries begin to meet again this Fall. Lisa will be able to check the master facility calendar to let you know if the date/time you have in mind would be available. You can also check the calendar on the church website prior to contacting the church office. This calendar should be up to date with the master calendar that is kept in the office. 

You can email Lisa at or call 248-673-6621 ext. 100
