Diane had a great idea for getting the kids more involved in our gatherings. I thought I’d post it here for your consideration, and maybe we can talk about it more together Sunday.
Each month every child is assigned to an adult (or two – depending on how many adults would like to participate). The adult/s would be responsible for that child during our time on Sunday – sit with them and sort of coach/mentor them, encourage them to participate in different ways. But they would also take some time to get to know the child more throughout the entire month – call or write them, come by to visit with them, whatever is feasible and realistic during the week.
Of course at the end of the month, they’d rotate to a different adult.
Hopefully this would help our kids feel more a part of the family and more comfortable around everyone in time.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
We recently had a discussion that got into the area of defining who is our brother and sister. Is this something we are responsible for trying to define? If so, what is our criteria? Is there a single list of criteria that everyone must use? Feel free to comment here with your thoughts, scriptures to support, etc.
Hello everyone, Here are the meeting times/places coming up this week. Please feel free to reach out to the respective host for more information:
Sunday October 11th:
***Please note that Colby and Kim will be traveling so there will be no meetings at their house Sun. Oct. 4 or Sun. Oct. 11. This also means there will be no Thursday night meeting on Oct. 8.***
I don’t know of any meetings going on this weekend, so if anyone is interested, you are welcome to come to Brent and Marci’s Sunday morning around 9:30am. Please contact us directly via text, call, or email by Saturday evening to let us know if you plan to come.
We will update this post weekly, and include other meetings that take place during the week, as well as any other happenings that anyone might be interested in. ….and this week’s music:
Kay sent me another link to an article! I’m including it below, but wanted to mention something first…if you’d like to be able to publish your own posts here, I can send you an invite for “author” status. This way you don’t have to send things to me first. BUT if you’d rather just send things to me and not mess with it, that’s fine too. 🙂
Also – if there’s anyone you would like to share this blog with, just send me their email and I’ll send them an invite to view. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Without further ado, here’s the link to the article. Feel free to leave comments!
Hope everyone is having a good week!
P.S. A post about where/when we’ll be meeting this Sunday will be coming soon.
Kay sent over a link to this article. Thanks, Kay! 🙂
If you have anything to add or you’d like to discuss, leave it in the comments!
Hey y’all! Today we decided to start a blog to help improve communication. We thought it would be helpful to post where and when we’ll be meeting each week…we could also include topics of discussion or things we’d like to focus on for the upcoming meeting. This way we will all have a chance to check in here beforehand and prepare a little better. This is by no means a requirement (obviously!), but might help us be more unified and in touch throughout the week.
Today, Kim and Colby have decided to offer their house up every week. Thanks, Kimberly and Colby!! If anyone else wishes to host a Sunday just let it be known, but for now we’ll plan to meet in Cedar Park at 3 every Sunday.
Please feel free to add comments/questions/topics of discussion to this page. If you want me to post an article/song/poem/prayer request/anything….send it my way and I’ll be happy to post it here for everyone to read and chime in on/offer encouragements via the comments.
