Give and it Will Be Given to You

Giving

Pastor Jim wrapped up our sermon series on Rockland’s core values on November 4 by teaching on value #4: “Give”. Often, this is a topic that people don’t care to hear about in church and yet Jesus taught about it extensively. We suppose he had a good reason for doing so. When it came to teaching about giving, this is one of the things Jesus said: ...

Summer is over and with it our mission trip groups. Soon it will be cold and dark on Colfax, but in that darkness the motels will be full of people trying to stay warm through the winter.
