What is your talent? Your treasure?
Once upon a time, there was a wonderful church that did what they could to spread the word of Christ throughout its small community. One day, it was decided to have a big community meal and everybody was asked to bring a dish to share.
Alas, some of the congregation felt sadness as they could not afford to fix extra food as they barely had enough to cover their own meals. But, they decided, if others could cook, they could clean. So, it came to pass…
Alas, some of the congregation felt sadness that they could not cook a decent meal if their life depended on it. But, they decided, they had money and could help supply the food for the dinner. And so, it came to pass…
Alas, some of the congregation felt sadness as they were not good cooks, couldn’t stand for long periods of times and had not the money to spare. But, they had a garden full of flowers and decided they could help decorate the hall with fresh flowers as their contribution to the dinner. And so, it came to pass…
The moral of the story is that it takes many different kinds of people to keep a church alive. Whether you can cook, enticing people to come to the church dinner, join others with laughter and fellowship while cleaning, have money to buy the food and to help get the word out, or if you are a faithful servant unto God’s earth, it takes all kinds of people to make a church.
And so, it came to pass… Read the bulletin here.

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a community of about 850,000 Christians in 3,800 congregations in the United States and Canada.
Two groups of frontier Christians came together in 1832 to form the foundation of today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
They shared the view that people should not be excluded from fellowship in the church because they didn't adhere to a particular human-made creed.
They used to say there is "no creed but Christ." Today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) still thinks that way.
We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover what God wants us to do.
