This week we continue our series on Living Generously. God invites us to be generous with our attitudes, our time, our compassion, our resources, etc. Which sounds great until we look at our bank account balance in these lean unstable times. These days I have more questions than answers. Let's explore together generosity and finances in a curious non-guilt producing approach. Hope to see you Sunday in-person or online! -Pastor Patti
The Smoky Hill UMC Preschool has been an outstanding program for decades and nurtured countless children and families. Currently, however, the preschool is not viable nor sustainable in its current state. Therefore, after hours of conversation and prayerful consideration the Ad Council has decided to close the preschool as of December 31, 2022.

Light. Bread. Shepherd. Life. The Gospel of John uses these and other symbols to paint a picture of who Jesus is. Through the I Am statements Jesus describes himself with rich images, showing us that he is both fully human and fully divine and calling us as his followers.
In Jesus Revealed: The I Am Statements in the Gospel of John, author Matt Rawle explores the "I Am" statements in John as works of art that resonate throughout the Gospel and all of Scripture. He shows how these words point beyond themselves to the deep mystery of Jesus Christ. Join Matt on this journey and experience the profound truth at the heart of the "I Am" statements: that Jesus is light and life, and he calls us to himself and offers us the hope of resurrection.
Chapter topics include:
1. I am the bread of life (John 6:48)
2. I am the light of the world (John 8:12)
3. I am the good shepherd (John 10:11)
4. I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25)
5. I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6)
6. I am the true vine (John 15:1)
