Thanksgiving As with every November, I think of Thanksgiving. The thanksgiving readings every year feature the story of the lepers who are healed by Jesus and the one leper who returns thankful to Jesus in Luke 17. After you preach on it a couple of times it starts to lose meaning for you. So I started looking a little differentlyRead More

Podcast – Oct 21, 2018 – The Purpose of StewardshipRadioClub

The Purpose of Stewardship This week Pastor Rieger takes on the sometimes derogatory term, Stewardship.  This has become a four-letter word in churches because the first thing people think about is money.  But that isn’t really the case.  It means much more than just money.  It is about time, talents and the gifts we receive from God.  Listen this weekRead More
