December Gifts of Love - our Advent Retreat - focused on God's gift of Love to us, his son Jesus. We explored thoughts about gift-giving during this season, and especially about gifts given and made with love. Afterwards we worked on hand-made gifts including woven items, and hand painted jewelry boxes or handmade Anglican Rosaries. Finally we wrapped up our time together with a simple lunch of a wonderful homemade soup and cornbead. Check out these additional pictures from our retreat.
October (continued)
October continues to be a wonderful month full of activity.  On Sunday the 26th we were blessed with the talents of Mark Englehardt playing delightful Toccatas, Tricks and Treats on the organ.  Next we had a celebration to bless our new Atrium. Click here for more pictures.

October has started out with a bang - or maybe a bark! Sunday October 5th we had a Blessing of the Animals Service and many animals came to church. Sheep, dogs,  kittens, a rabbit, a pot-bellied pig and stuffed animals too. A delicious simple luncheon was provided by the Family Ministries team. Click here for more pictures.
