Where Your Treasure is… (Nov 2, 2020)

Juliane Poirier Pastor's Corner

“Where your treasure is there will your heart be also.”

Since 1852 Napa Methodist Church has been a light in the community, and we continue to shine even in these difficult days of pandemic, sheltering in place, a new civil rights movement, divisive politics, and wildfires. It hasn’t been an easy time but there’ve been treasures to uncover:

We need each other.

We are all connected.

Small kindnesses matter.

All people are God’s children.

God is still working in us and through us.

Earth is our home and deserves our care and attention.

Giving our treasures of time, money, energy, and love, reveal God’s love in the world.

Because of your financial generosity we are present in the community in near-miraculous ways. You are helping us learn new ways of being together while we’re apart, helping us shine God’s light and love far past the boundaries of our own community.

This Sunday, November 8, we’ll dedicate to God our tithes and pledging giving for 2021. Throughout our finance campaign we’ve seen the “treasure box” made over 50 years ago by Ed Whitmer for a Napa Methodist Church finance campaign.  This wooden box is a link between our past and our future. On Sunday morning between 7-9am, I’ll be masked and in the church parking lot, and I invite you to safely drive through and drop your pledge card into the treasure box. You can also mail your pledge card to the church or bring it by the office.

Though we may not be meeting in person, the treasure that is Napa Methodist Church still reflects the creating, redeeming, and sustaining love of God in the world. Thank you for all the ways you give your treasure, including of course, the gift of yourselves.

In faith,

Marylee
