In God We Trust
It’s on our money. Every time we spend money we are confronted with that phrase. The odd thing is, whatever value we have placed on that purchase we acknowledge by the amount we spend- all of it marked with “In God We Trust.” If we were entirely truthful, we would probably admit that all too often we don’t think about our trust in God. We rely on our talents, skills, jobs, and even the advice of others before we consider our trust relationship with Jesus. Trust. The picture comes to mind of a little child jumping into the arms of their father from a height that would normally be filled with peril. The fear and anxiety vanish as the child gazes into the eyes of the father. Confidence and even joy washes over the young face. Just a moment, and then the jump. Full release to the care and provision of the arms that represent safety and strength.
Ben Seamans (member of Trinity Baptist Church, Reedsburg, WI) has accepted the position of Disaster Relief Catalyst for the MWBC. Outgoing catalyst, Dave Wedekind, is helping Ben through this transition of leadership. Please join us in welcoming Ben to the team. Due to Covid-19, the DR training that was scheduled for June 19-20 has been canceled. If you are already a volunteer but need to recertify you can do so by filling out this form.
The MWBC state newspaper is going digital! After the Spring 2020 issue, the newspaper will no longer be printed and mailed out from our office. However, you can still catch up on the latest news in the MWBC by reading the digital copy. Please sign up through this link to have it delivered to your email inbox. Churches and individuals are free to print as many copies as desired.
The Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Convention has partnered with FreeWill to give every congregation member across the region the ability to give back to their church in two new ways. MWBC is proud to share resources so the entire convention can benefit and spread the gospel.
We hope these two tools (a will-writing tool and a Qualified Charitable Distribution tool for gifts from IRAs) will be helpful to you and your family as you plan for your future and decide how you might want to support your church. Read more…
