Dear Friends,
 
We (mostly) dodged the rain on Sunday and started our gardening endeavors! The Church School kids and teachers played in the dirt on Sunday, pulling weeds to make way for some flowers! The goal is to plant flowers that can later be used as altar flowers during the service. A special thank you goes out to the parents and teachers that jumped in on Sunday when I couldn't be there as I was preaching. Next week, we will continue our gardening activities from 10:00 AM until the Peace.
 
Remember, the Church School is having a food and goods drive until June 14. Add some non-perishables to your grocery list.
 
Best,
Jared Wyma-Bradley

                        

A few weeks ago in Church School we focused on working through our fears and holding on to our hopes in prayer. Led by Courtney F., the children went outside in the back yard where a circular labyrinth was drawn in chalk. Written at the top was Grace's invitation to worship: whereever you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here. The word "here" was down blow at the opening of the labyrinth. We stood around the edges and discussed what we saw: a mess of lines and pathways that left us confused and excited. We stepped into the labrinyth following the person infront of us. Sometimes were we confused, frustrated, or lost. Sometimes it was easy. Sometimes we thought we had found the right way to the center only to find a dead end. Sometimes we stepped on people's toes! When we reached the center we talked about how life can be all of those things.
