Treasure Text:
Romans 12:1-3 NIV
Living Sacrifices
1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship. 2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. 3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

Sabbath school class:
The Pursuing Spiritual Transformation Sabbath
(Romans 12:1-3) school group, facilitated by Peter Walker focus on helping each other understand and grow into the likeness of Jesus Christ. We do this by seeking to understand practical ways to study the Bible and be filled with the Holy Spirit. We create a safe place where we can be honest in our questions and supported in our growth.

Today’s Offering – Local Church Budget
Today, our offering is for our church. It’s for the programs and activities of our congregation. How much you give is between you and the Lord. Whatever we give, let us give joyfully. No one should force us to give, for we give out of gratitude to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
