September 19, 2018

What a great weekend! First and foremost, I want to draw attention to Brooke Calhoun and give her the praise she deserves for organizing church retreat 2018—Brooke, I think I can speak for most of us when I say IT WAS AWESOME. Some people hiked, some took naps, some people played board games and some folks just sat and read a book. No matter what was going on, I think what I loved witnessing the most was the fellowship between friends, old and new; I watched a couple of new relationships come to life and more than a few old relationships get strengthened, and it was beautiful.
And then there were those that stayed home and made sure the church was populated on Sunday…thank YOU, too! Even though thirty of us went to St. Crispin’s, there were still forty in attendance on Sunday—that’s pretty awesome. I missed seeing you all during worship, so I’m excited to reconnect, Sunday.
Some housekeeping right quick…
If you need a key to the church and have not already received one, please call Chad at the office and we can accommodate you—I apologize for any inconvenience that this process has caused. Next, there’s going to be a meal at 6:30 tonight, followed by youth (Tonight’s leader is Jason Pierce, thanks Jason!), choir, and adult study. I am still looking for a fourth group leader to tackle doing a bible study (the gospels) so if you’re interested, please let me know. At 8:15, everyone will gather in the Nave for Compline, to end the night.
There’s going to be a playground workday on October 13th from 9am-(whenever we finish) and we’ll also be working a little out in the shed if we have enough people. June was interested in painting the sacristy, too, so it looks as though we need a small army to come and commit some time. Please join if you can, the priority of the day will be the playground but I’d really love to see enough folks present to do other things, as well.
HR continues to progress. He’s walking twice a day, and his spirits are high. Please continue to pray for him and his family!
Jeanne Mowdy is recovering well from her surgery; I get updates from Mike frequently and he ensures that everything is moving along as it should. Please continue to pray for them, as well.
Enjoy the rest of your week, beloved. I’ll see you soon. Until then, be at peace and #practiceresurrection!
