INT'L PEACE DAY - Sunday, Sept. 21st

What do you IMAGINE? 

This is one of those times...

Sometimes we imagine a world without war,
Sometimes we imagine true respect and human equality,
And sometimes we even imagine all people willing to stand hand in hand for peace.

Let's celebrate peace, lift it up and believe in it. Trust in our God who can help us achieve it.
  Tie dye - pull out that shirt, we know you have one! 

Our Sunday School kids will film a short video message of support to send to St. Albans Episcopal Church as they plant and dedicate their Peace Pole this Sunday at 11 a.m. We were busy baking in the kitchen last week: Peace cookies from The Bridge were  delivered for the dedication reception and they were excited to receive them!

P.S. Vibrant Faith at Home has some great activities for families this month, all ages, all stages, this and other everyday topics.  Check it out!

Pass It On and then some..

If life is really tough for you just now, name it, claim it, know Jesus to be with you always, even in the valley of the shadow of death… and meanwhile, take time to smell the flowers.
The phrase name it, claim it, know Jesus to be with you always seems to 'be right on time' just like a breath of fresh air as our family reorganizes life with my first born so far away. Each family makes the changes necessary for harmony yet internal struggle may pop up.  Hope this is helpful to anyone going through tough change as we begin yet another school year and another season of life. 

Sunday Morning Ministries is now in full swing. Kids and families are running around everywhere.  All ages are accounted for with a wonderful group of adults so giving of their time. Our hope is that we can be that breath of fresh air each week as you put to rest the worries of the previous week and start a new with the week to come, always taking the time to stop and smell the flowers with those you love.
