We don’t care how you’re dressed or how you voted. It doesn’t matter to us if you’re on your way to the mountain, out to brunch, or have no plans at all. We’re a church full of broken, imperfect people with every story imaginable being gathered into God’s loving, healing embrace.

You matter to God. You matter to us. Walk in the red door (closest to Parade Road), Sunday morning at 7:45 or 10:30. (If you’re running late, don’t let that stop you - come anyway.) We have guests every week, so we’re expecting you!

Introduction

As we are invited today to consider what it means to be managers (rather than owners) of all that we have, it is crucial to recall that we are bought with a price. “Christ Jesus, himself human, . . . gave himself a ransom for all.” Apart from the generosity of God we have nothing—we are nothing. By God’s gracious favor we have everything we need.
