Monday’s Here

Thank you for giving yourself to the Lord and to one another in worship.  Maybe it was the extra hour of sleep, but the sanctuary seemed to buzz with delight in God’s presence.  So grateful, also, for the work of the Drama Ministries Ensemble for sharing Scripture.  It was a powerful way to experience God’s Word together.

gamenightAnd… game night!!!!  Thank you, activity team, for hosting this evening.  Everyone had a terrific night, except, of course, me (Pastor Jon) – who wound “winning” the position of Greater Peon in the card game “The Great Dalmuti.”  Naturally, the rest of the players were extremely pleased with that outcome!
