! Corinthians 7:19, 23
The important thing is obeying God’s commands. You all were bought at a great price, so do not became slaves of people.
For all its peculiarities and unevenness, the Bible has a simple story. God made man. Man rejected God. God won’t give up until he wins him back.
God will whisper. He will shout. He will touch and nag. He will take away our burdens; he’ll even take away our blessings. If there are a thousand steps between us and him, he will take all but one. But he will leave the final one for us. The choice is ours.
Please understand. His goal is not to make you happy. His goal is to make you his. His goal is not to get you what you want; it is to get you what you need. (From “ A Gentle Thunder” by Max)
This Sunday we will have a special congregational meeting after church. We will be discussing the plan to upgrade our audio and video systems at church. We will take a vote at this meeting to continue with the proposal that is being presented by Fearings. This is the culmination of our efforts that began a couple of years back. We had decided to establish a fund to start collecting the monies needed to upgrade those systems and install video screens in the sanctuary. The need for this improvement has been demonstrated by the pandemic and our outdoor worship and now our dual indoor and outdoor worship. The improvements that we are asking you to okay, will bring Dekorra up to date technically and enhance the worship experience.
At the meeting this Sunday I will be asking you to OK the contract with Fearings. The total cost of this project is $37,055. We have just over $10,000 in the screen fund at this time. I will also be asking the members to allow council to borrow up to $30,000 from Hometown Bank in Poynette to finance this upgrade. It will be a five year pay back.
I will start the meeting with a motion to approve the above question and I will ask for a second to the motion. We will than have an open discussion period so that members can voice their opinions. After both pros and cons have been presented we will hold a vote to approve or not approve this plan.
I hope that we have a good turnout for this meeting. It will be held in the sanctuary.

Christianity, in its purest form, is nothing more than seeing Jesus.
Christian service, in its purest form, is nothing more than imitating Him who we see.
To see His Majesty and to imitate Him, that is the sum of Christianity!
