Hey Church Family,
I’ve been so encouraged and challenged personally by our Sunday teaching series Worthy, and have heard from many of you who feel the same. As I witness our church family engaging in worship, I know God is at work in our lives. It’s an exciting time to be part of Morning Star as we are being transformed by the gospel of Jesus!
If you’re new to receiving this monthly Financial Update, it’s coming to you because you’re involved with the mission of Morning Star. We strive to communicate clearly and consistently with you regarding our finances because an informed church is a healthy church.

COMMENTS. As you can see, our 2023 giving got off to a bit of a slow start, but January is a tricky month to project with so many generous gifts being given in December for year-end giving. We’ll keep doing our part to faithfully steward God’s money and to trust Him to provide for our needs.
SIDING PROJECT. Most of you have noticed that the wind knocked off a section of our aging siding and we now need to replace all the siding that surrounds the south auditorium. If the weather cooperates, we’re looking at getting a big chunk of this project done during Spring Break. If you’re interested in volunteering some of your time to help, please shoot me an email to get more information.

THANK YOU for your prayers and generosity. Let’s keep growing in leading people to pursue a Jesus-first life in 2023!.
In all things, Jesus first!
