Wow! Can you believe we are so far along into the New Year already? Trust that yours has started along fine and you are making great progress in your personal vision and goals outlaid for this year. I started a new project at my home over the last few weeks, restoring our worn out and water damaged American Oak floors. What a task! I never would have guessed so much work needed to go into it with all the sanding, staining and clear coating. Along the way, I decided to paint the rooms as well. My poor family, they have been so gracious with me because their everyday living has really been unsettled. But you know what, the end result of the work done was just absolutely beautiful and totally worth the sacrifice involved. Now I just need to get the rest of the house back in order.
I’m so grateful for the opportunities and tasks God places before us, whether at home, work, or at church. The accomplishment of goals and putting our hands to work is filled with sacrifice but the end result is so rewarding. As well, it’s so satisfying when we as a corporate body of believers here at Suncoast come together with one heart and mind to fulfill God given tasks together. Whether through the spiritual building of the His Kingdom here or abroad, or in taking care of His house of Worship in putting our hands and financial resources to the Master’s work, the end result is that He gets all the glory and praise. Now that is really awesome and I am so grateful to be a part of it, and I know that you are too!
As we continue through this year, I want to encourage you to make use of all the opportunities available to you to grow, give and to serve God’s Kingdom here at Suncoast. If you have any questions about giving opportunities or how to give your tithes and offering please reach out to me or the staff here in the business office. We are here to serve and support you and no question or concern is too small.
One last thing, you may have noticed our new tithing envelopes. They have changed a bit in design but please note all of the same giving opportunities remain. I would encourage you to seal them after placing your gift in as well. Again, if you need anything, reach out to us.
Blessings upon your day,
Paul Sheridon, Business Pastor
