Singing For Your Supper

God-At-Work

This past Sunday we sang our way through Scripture with theme tables and songs to represent Creation, Fall, Holy History, Christmas, Cross, Easter, and New Life by the Spirit. We took this pic to represent some of the places where God is at work in us this week – you and I are the site of God’s moving and acting! This Sunday, Feb 1 will be on “Risk and Living Off the Rails.” The Following Sunday, Feb 8 is “Grace, Galatians, and The Merchant of Venice.”

Two great services!  On the 21st we enjoyed the KidZone Christmas play.  Great job by all the kids in helping us get into the Christmas story and enjoy the message of love come down to dwell with us.  Then December 23rd we had a good candlelight service and the opportunity to sing Christmas hymns and reflect together.  Merry Christmas everyone.   (PS – send Rich more pics and video clips and I’ll post them here!)
