Hughes Memorial Weekly Update -Tuesday, November 6th

Memory Verse
"He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting 
 money into the treasury.  Many rich people put in large sums.  A poor 
 window came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a 
 penny.  Then he called his disciples and said to them, "Truly I tell 
 you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are  
 contributing to the treasury.  For all of them have contributed out of 
 their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she 
 had, all she had to live on."
  - Mark 12:41-44

Thought For the Week

Jesus is more concerned with the quality of what we give than the quantity.  Are you giving your all for the Kingdom of God?
