Thanks Be to God!

We must be careful to thank God when He responds to our needs! One such response from His gracious hand is financial blessing. Early in the year we had a giving downturn. The elders and deacons made the congregation aware of this situation and asked for prayer. By God’s grace and through the generosity of His people here at HLPC we are on a much more stable footing. Please join with me in giving God thanks and praise! Let us also continue to be the cheerful givers He asks us to be and pray He will continually make of us wise stewards.

We also want to give God thanks for our new building! It is complete and we can begin using it this week. The youth will be meeting there tonight! Again, let us give God thanks and praise for His blessing. [As important aside, we still need for those who made pledges to the new building to fulfill them to the best of their ability.]

These blessings should sober us as well as excite us. God has blessed us with wonderful resources. To whom much is given, much is also required. Let’s seek to use these resources wisely for His glory, and for the advance of the gospel as we seek to reach out with the gospel and equip God’s people for life and ministry.

Soli Deo Gloria! To God alone be the glory
