Sunday, March 13, 2016 during our 10:00AM Worship Service, we had a dedication of the Sanctuary Remodeling Project.

From December 27, 2015 through March 5, 2016 many members and friends of the church labored to beautify the Sanctuary. Some are pictured.

Following the Worship Service and Dedication, a lunch was served.

Lately I am musing related to gifts; and the blessing of developing them. I hope on some level this challenges and encourages you.

People are being stock piled in churches. Polling data shows they go to be consumers, not producers. This creates risk.

Steve’s Mission Trip

July 28 - August 6, 2017

Steve returned safely from Bolivia and is getting back into the Sterling routine.

Thank you everyone for helping and supporting Steve Clites on his Mission Trip to Cochabamba, Bolivia. He will be leaving July 28 and returning August 6. Flights are from Chicago to Miami and Miami to Bolivia. He meets Ron Morton and the rest of the group in Miami. About 11:00PM that night they fly to Bolivia which takes 7 or 8 hours. Flights are carefully planned as there is only one flight a day to Bolivia.

Because of everyone’s generous support he has sufficient funds. He will still be taking tools, bedding, towels, and anything else he can squeeze in his suitcase with him, to leave with the people at the Word of Life site. The plan is to work on building a missionary training site.

Please pray for Steve, the Mortons, Word of Life staff, and the people of Bolivia.


Church Windows Repair Appeal

Dedicated in 1898 this beautiful Church is in The National Register of Historic Places. The stained glass around the outer hallways, fellowship, and fireplace rooms is original with the building. The larger windows in the Sanctuary were replaced in the 1940's. In ways small and large these windows need repair, maintenance, and protection.

There are 60 windows total. To raise these funds among our congregation is currently impossible, so we are asking for help. The dollar figure we have listed is the estimate of a reputable company we have carefully evaluated. The goal is high. All money we receive will go toward repairs.

We have been asked if this can happen in smaller pieces, and the answer is yes, but doing it in stages would increase the costs as you would expect.

Please feel welcome to call if you have questions.
