April 24, 2016


Thank you to everyone who was involved in putting on our farewell lunch last weekend.  It was a great time to remember many memories from the past 10 years.  Thank you also to those who gave cards and gifts at the lunch and for Lydia's birth.  We appreciate your generosity as we prepare for our move and we are sure that some of these may prove to be a topic of conversation for years to come.  --Pastor, Sarah, Lilli, Emalee, Ellanor, Liam, and Lydia

Building Healthy Families –Wives, want to build up your marriage?  Stop and think about your husband’s gifts. (No, not the ones he gave you for your birthday!) What are his talents? What are his spiritual gifts? What does he love to do? What are his accomplishments? Recognize them, name them, and communicate your respect for them . . . to him and to others. It’s one way to build a great relationship.  -Lutheran Family Service
