The following was sent by Sarah Boatright to those involved in Children’s ministry.  I asked her permission to use it as our main blog on our website this week.  The ministry and dates are important to all of us. Her witness in the first paragraph is something I needed to read and take to heart.  I think they are important reflections for all of us as we begin 2018.

Grace and Peace, Pastor Steve

We made it! It is 2018!  Gyms will be packed and Whole Foods will busting at the seems;) We know that resolutions can be fickle but we also know that Gods love is not! So what is it this year? Health? Spirituality? Money? Time? Patience? ummmm all of the above?!?  Can I be honest with you? I am ready to go into this year wholehearted, all in. Learning to be comfortable with being tough and tender, brave and afraid, and strong and struggling all of these all of the time. God has called us to be this one specific person with many facets. I so desperately want to live into that this year. What is your “thing” for this year? We are here for you and grateful to walk next to each other in support!
