Our Faith Is Fun for Kids has begun and will be on the 2nd and 4th Sundays each month.  Thanks to Cindy Wright and Sue Hine for being willing to share their faith, time and talents with our younger ones.  Big kids are welcome too!  



Christmas Fun for Kids Day



 Sat. Dec. 15th 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM.  Crafts, games, music, lunch and MORE!  More info. to come!  Feeling crafty?  Crafts are always fun, but especially so during the holidays.  Peter Godfrey is looking for people to come up with a craft to do with the kids.  Please let him know of your idea soon so we don't get "doubles" and so that you can take a look at our craft supplies at church before buying.






 SELF STORAGE says the sign.

Some day I’ll store my Self when I get in my way.

Stuff judgment behind a roll down door

and walk up hill to the Redemption Center.


When I get in my way, I’ll store my Self

like the woman who asked Where at the well

after she walked uphill to the Redemption Center.

She buried her Self in her dry jar.


Like the woman at the well who asked Where,

I find the Grace Street marked ONE WAY

and bury my Self in her jar, too.

Instead of drawing water, we dive in.


Along one-way Grace Street,

I wash with my sister in the waterfall.

We dive in without drawing water,

bathe in the welcome of unconditional love.


I swim with my sister in the waterfall

beside the SELF STORAGE sign,

free to welcome with unconditional love,

our judgment in the jar behind the door.
