A Word From Pastor Rich...
If your house was on fire and you had time to grab only three things to rescue from the blaze, what would you grab? What are the most important things?
What is most important in the church? This Lord’s Day we are considering the things of which the church cannot do without. What do we build everything else upon? If we are going the Be the Church, we have to have a solid foundation to build upon. We have facilities and programs, properties and procedures and mission statements and visions for the future. But our best laid plans cannot stand if the foundation is faulty and crumbling.
We’ll be talking about building on a foundation that cannot fail. I hope you can join us in person or online.
Spiritual Gifts Inventory
The Holy Spirit gifts each believer with at least one spiritual gift to be used for the good of the Body of Christ. We are most effective and fulfilled when we work within our giftedness.
You are encouraged to take a simple gifts inventory to identify your gifts and put them to work.

Since reopening for in-person worship we have incurred additional costs with repairs and updates including parsonage furnace replacement, septic system costs, church signage repairs, parsonage painting & repair as well as upcoming repairs to the church.
These costs have exceeded $20,000 in the last few months.
Thank you for considering easing this extra burden.
Giving toward this can be marked: Repairs.
Calling all I Love My City crew! We have the opportunity to serve our community at the annual Island Art Fair again this year!
We will help provide direction to vendors on Friday and Saturday morning. During the actual event, we will be stationed in various spots helping guide both vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
Our ILMC booth will be our central "hub" for our volunteers and give us an opportunity to talk with our neighbors.
