Easter Bedtime Story

Hi, Everyone,
Well, hoping that there is not a school closure or delay this Friday, we will meet March 16 for the last time before Easter. The following two Fridays, March 23 and 30, school is closed for Superintendent’s Day and Good Friday. So because there were some unforeseen closures this season, we will put aside the Love Languages study and concentrate on Easter for this last week of March that we will be meeting. In the previously used format of “bedtime stories” we’ll look at some children’s books about Easter, we’ll search the Scriptures for the adult versions of the story, and we’ll recount our own experience, traditions, and reason as we truly consider the Easter story and its impact on our minds and spirits. So even if your kids are too old for you to read them bedtime stories, you’ll enjoy and learn from this study.

Chris Tomlin ― 2018 “Worship Night In America Tour” at the Times Union Centerchris-tomiln-times-union
Thursday, April 12 at 7:00. Tickets start at $15
Featuring Chris Tomlin, Kim Walker Smith of Jesus Culture, Matt Maher, Christine D’Clario, Tauren Wells, and Pat Barrett
GRAMMY® winner Chris Tomlin continues to bring the church together in unity and prayer with his 2018 Worship Night In America (WNIA) tour.
“It is powerful when all streams of the church come together in an act of unity to worship and pray…that’s the heart behind 2018’s ‘WNIA Tour.’ It’s a picture of God’s kingdom together, and the sound of thousands and thousands of voices pouring out His praise,” says Tomlin. “I pray these nights are filled with revival and restoration as we all join together proclaiming one name. As the scriptures say, ‘Lord I have heard of Your fame, I stand in awe of Your deeds…renew them in our day.’”
If you are interested in attending the concert, you may wish to speak to Donna.

Tomorrow, March 14, is Pi Day (3.14) and is also celebrated by consuming pie. Celebrate appropriately and I hope to see you all on Friday, March 16 for Friday Morning Moms.
Grace and peace,
Denise
