Mortgage Burning Sunday!

Today we had the privilege to gather together as a church family and celebrate the fact that our mortgage is paid in full. We had two large re-modeling projects the last 5 years and the loans are paid in full as of a few weeks ago. At the end of our service our two pastors enjoyed the task of burning the mortgage.

Backyard BBQ from Kettle Falls provided a delicious lunch for our church after the service to continue the celebration. Brisket, beans and rolls…delicious. It was a great day for our church.

1 Chronicles 29: 9 & 10-13:

Then the people rejoiced because they had given willingly, for with a whole heart they had offered freely to the Lord.

Blessed are you, O LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.

For a historical picture of what this day was like outside I’ll add this photo of our skies on the way to church. We usually can see mountains, hills and blue skies around here but the smoke has poured in from the south to us from many major fires burning in Washington, Oregon and California.

Praying for rain and fire containment!

  1. That’s the only reason for starting a fire in a church! 😁 Congrats to your church fellowship for doing so well. Yes, joining you in prayer for rain and the ongoing captures of those arsonists.

  2. Maybe a paper shredder would have been more appropriate choice, considering the smoke and fires in the State. Yikes! But still, great milestone for your congregation.
