In the Upper Room for Friday, February 3, 2017, there is a thought for the day that reminds me of "First Church."

It was about a small church that was approached by a school nurse.  She asked if the church would be able to provide backpacks, filled with food items for a few local schools, to send home each Friday with students who would likely have nothing to eat on the weekend.

Just like our Congregation, this congregation responded with donations of food and money to fill the backpacks each week.

Through this Ministry we see scripture being fulfilled.  Jesus said that those who are faithful in the little things will also be faithful in the big things, and scripture reassures us that God will provide. When we respond each time God calls us we learn that a little faith can open doors for God to show His awesome power.

May God continue to bless all the Faithful Donors at "First Church."

Blessings to all;

Bill Shaw
