Sunday, December 3, 2006 @ 11:30am – “Buried Treasure”
We begin our new series this Sunday with the exploration of our final value, Stewardship. The term carries much baggage and just as many pre-conceived ideas so we’ve got our work cut out for us this month!
Of note, if you received a December calendar last week, there is a typo. Our gathering for December 24 will take place at the Annex (234 Maxwell) not 586 Highbury Park.
Read: Matthew 25:14-30. If you’re feeling especially keen check out this article for a little background knowledge on Matthew and his original audience in relation to our scripture reading for the week.
Think: We’re always looking for a return on our investments. Time, money, effort…there has to be a payout or benefit for it be worth our trouble. But what if we adjusted our viewpoint and took inventory of what’s been invested in us – how are the investments doing these days?

Pray: Father, may I be found faithful with all that you’ve entrusted me with.
*Sacred Space: The assessment on the Taylor’s property is complete. We’ve made copies for your benefit and will spend some time this Sunday bringing everyone up to speed on the matter.
*To support theStory financially, the offering tin will be on the piano as it was last week. If you’d like to write a cheque, make it out to “New Horizons Community Church” with “theStory” marked in the memo box. All giving is tax receiptable and offering envelopes are provided. For those who are interested in direct debit, we need a minimum 15 people to set up the program. If you’re interested, talk to Joe.
