Celebrating Community at Pentecost

July 1, 2021 Amy Wheatley

Thirty parents, children and youth gathered outdoors at the church on Sunday, May 23 to celebrate Pentecost. Youth group teens helped dramatize the Pentecost story for the younger children. We heard how God’s spirit came to Jesus’ followers like a mighty wind and enabled them to tell people from different lands about God’s love. We learned that all were welcome in this new community of people who lived together, ate together, prayed together, and shared all that they had with one another. We concluded our celebration with cupcakes, bubbles and play with friends!

First Day of Spring Family Fling!

April 8, 2021 Amy Wheatley

Twenty seven parents, children and youth gathered in our outdoor courtyard on the first day of spring, Sunday, March 21st. Families were joined by members of the Family, Youth and Children (FYC) ministry, and the pastors, musicians and A/V team stopped by to say “hi” on their way to worship. Adults re-connected in conversation, teens played spirited games of cornhole and the younger children ran, climbed and laughed together on the playground. We all enjoyed the warm sunny weather and a few dozen sprinkle donuts! Here are some photos of the fun!
