This Weeks News

Is it really Monday again?!  For those who were celebrating Pentecost in church yesterday, thank you for your engagement in All Age Worship and as we think about our own spiritual journey and growth let me encourage you to continue to think and pray about the different sections of your paper plate pie chart of your average week and considering the question of roughly how many of the 112 waking hours of a week you set aside for God…
