Getting to Work on Our Own

We’ve promised the couples in our congregation some marriage building classes.  After Tracey’s message at the couples’ meal, we hope to begin monthly meetings for couples. 7 couples accompanied us to the evening meal.  We know that there are more that are interested in growing in their marriage.

Marriage & Church

Tracey was the keynote speaker at an evening meals for married couples.  She spoke on the importance of love and respect in the marriage.  There were over 50 couples present and many made commitments to work on their marriage.  It was a fun-filled evening with good food and a challenging message.

Church & Community

On Saturday, I was able to take a group of men to a conference on the work of the church in the community.  It was refreshing to hear about the importance of the church in redeeming the culture.  It was inspiring to be placed into groups to develop resources and ideas on how to make a positive impact in our neighborhood.

Doing More

For Father’s Day, the children handed out some gifts to the men.  The ladies made some yummy taco dishes.  The youth gave key chains.  The children’s leader created this wonderful picture frame for all the dads to get their pictures taken in.  As you can see, since my girls weren’t around, I was given some “adopted” children.

Deriam Preaches

Several months back, Deriam took a homiletics class with some adult leaders in our congregation.  He progressed well, but hasn’t had a chance to preach in a congregational setting, so he was willing to share on Father’s Day and stuck to his guns sharing only what was in his notes.  Great job, Deriam!

Dani Leads

We’ve been giving new opportunities for the youth to expand their abilities.  Dani has been playing in our worship team, but this was the first time that she led the music.  She was nervous, but did a great job for her first time.  We’ve opened up extra practices on Sunday afternoons so that others can practice and join us.

Dads’ Gifts

With a small youth meeting turn out, we got to work making small gifts for the Father’s Day party in church for Sunday.  They young people got the hang of how to make these gifts quickly and cranked out the very special and great looking key chains.  Thanks all for your help!
