So good for coffee and chatting after church on a warm summery day!

Article by Joyce L. Wiedrich

Pastor Sandi continued this week on her study of Paul.  Paul loved the people of Thessalonia. Paul’s letters all had several things in common, including opening and closing greetings, and expressions of joy and thankfulness.  Paul did not return there after his first trip, but sent Timothy instead. Timothy felt there was good progress but was concerned about a lack of faith in day-to-day life.  
Pastor Sandi also spoke with us and showed a video on spiritual formation.  Some things needed in spiritual formation include a quiet place, intentional breathing, closing ones eyes, and being conscious of placing oneself before God. One should offer their day to God, and ask for a spirit of gratitude.  Give it all to God!  Play back your day, as you give it to God to bless.  This will make a difference in your life!

We enjoyed our outside coffee and conversation after church, and noticed the two plots the children have planted with vegetables and strawberries.  Please come by and help weed and water so our kids will have some abundant produce later in the summer.  

We soon will be celebrating our graduates!  Our high school graduate this year is Hayley Andersen.  She has done a great job in terms of both scholarship and athletics!  Congratulations! Well-done!
