As many of you know, several weeks ago my email contact list was hacked and many of you received a message– purportedly from me – saying that I needed you to buy me an iTunes card for someone else. The message added: I had wanted to call you but my phone didn’t work so if you would just open the email link and give your credit card number then all would be good. The email even had a bible verse at the conclusion to indicate my bona fides “good faith.”

To those who are visiting today or who have only been worshiping with us for the past few months – each year at this time we have a Stewardship Campaign – we raise money in order to pay salaries, take care of the building, support our social justice work in the community, and pay for programs like youth groups and such. You will be hearing about this in our Minute for Missions.
