What a lovely Sunday!
We started during the Education hour with Jake and Melissa sharing their life and faith story - and what a story it's been! We thank them for letting us be witnesses to their faith in times of struggle and challenge - and for letting us surround them with love and prayers! Everytime their beautiful kids come running through the church door, we are reminded that God is present - everyday.
Worship was filled with Sandy's beautiful harp music and the sacrament of Communion; as well as one more story about King David (the juicy story about Bathsheba - and the amazing forgiveness that God gives) before we take a break from "The Story" for the rest of Advent.
After worship about 16 people went out to lunch at Old World Pizza and enjoyed a meal over wonderful conversation and lots of laughter! 12 of us then went over to the AMC theatres to watch some movies! I haven't heard reviews on "Arthur Christmas" or "Happy Feet 2" yet, but "The Muppets" was a blast!
So many wonderful things happening at St. Paul's UMC - stories shared, stories read, and new stories being written! It's a blessing to be a part of this community!
