Bearing Fruit for Jesus...with FAITHFULNESS! This week you should have received a letter in your home mailbox from Pastors Heather and Sarah with information on our 2019 stewardship focus: Bearing Fruit for Jesus...with FAITHFULNESS! Please pray for God’s guidance as you consider your annual financial commitment to MacArthur Park Lutheran Church for the Sept, 2019 - Aug, 2020 fiscal year. You may place your commitment card in the box at the back of the church any Sun- day in May. As tangible reminders of our faithfulness, we will continue to bring canned or packaged fruit to the altar every Sunday during the offering time. Last year, we collected almost 200 items to nourish and refresh those in need. How many can we collect this year?? Finally, this Sunday you will hear from Carla Lockett about Mac-Arthur Park Lutheran School and how this amazing ministry is Bearing Fruit for Jesus...with FAITHFULNESS!
