Matthew 15:27 - “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.” Faith receives what God gives, because faith knows that God only gives good things. Indeed, God has given us so much more than just crumbs that fall from the table. He has given us life, salvation, body and soul, eyes and ears, possessions and income. That’s where our stewardship starts: with faith in the God who is the greatest Giver.

VBS Quilt: Special thanks to Judy Saur for making a quilt out of blocks that the VBS kids designed in 2014.
Check it out! It’s on a table in the basement. Judy will do the 2018 one later on – giving her a rest.
A decision has not been made yet as to what we will do with the two quilts when done.
Kitchen Calendar: It’s time to start thinking about Lenten Soup Suppers. We need volunteers to sign up for basement duty in April. This involves set up for soup suppers and help with kitchen cleanup.
