5 youth, 3 Club 45er’s  and 6 adults had a great time singing Christmas songs, ringing bells for the Salvation Army, and greeting customers at the Fenton VG’s on Silver Parkway from noon-2 p.m. on Saturday, December 10. Other adults from our church filled in the rest of the day from 9AM – 9PM. It’s amazing how fast time flies when having fun and sharing the joy of Christ! Even though it was cold and the start of our first big snow of the season, the appreciation and generosity expressed by customers warmed our hearts.  Thank you Fenton community for supporting the Salvation Army!

We had a great time during our annual Triple C night (cookies, cards & crafts) decorating 12 dozen cookies and making cards and gifts for our Deacon’s care receivers. Great job youth! A big THANK YOU to Jenny Gibb and Martha Smith for their adult assistance ????

Sunday, November 6, six youth and five adults walked the Dibbleville area praying for our neighbors and community. We looked and prayed for homes with special needs, those selling and buying homes, homes that are vacant, new and existing businesses, all area churches and pastors, local and national government, and asked for prayer requests from those who passed by.

Afterward, we returned to church for quiet personal contemplation by reading Luke 10:25-37, asking, “Who is my neighbor?” and filling in “Love thy ______ neighbor.” Some answers were lonely, frail, proud, hurting, cruel, joyful, misguided, unfaithful, and trusting. We also experienced prayer stations with sand, clay, rock painting, finger labyrinths, journaling, prayer poses, and tacking burdens to the cross, along with meditative music. We look forward to doing this again during the Advent season!

Below are pictures of prayer around the cross in the sidewalk at The Road Community Church.

12 youth and 4 adults from St. Jude’s & Fenton First Presbyterian Churches went to Spicer’s Orchard Saturday, October 29. We enjoyed the hayride, took on the corn maze scavenger hunt challenge, and had cider and donuts – YUM! It was good to make new friends, and we look forward to more opportunities to play and learn together. God is good!!!

Thank you to the Hodgkin family for hosting the annual pumpkin carving and bonfire party again this year! Prizes were awarded for the most creative, scariest, silliest and best traditional pumpkins. We also enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with Pastor Lindsey and family 🙂 And yes, the pumpkin in the back middle of the picture is a llama!

The Moses/Exodus rotation for preschool – 5th grade runs October 23 through November 27.

The rotation objective is to bring understanding to children about the part God played in the story of Moses and the Exodus in the history of His people. Knowing how God is committed to His people, we are then able to find and build on our own faith, certain that God is with us always. Important ideas children will learn are:

  1. God called Moses and gave him the power he needed.
  2. Moses and Aaron were messengers of God.
  3. Moses told Pharaoh to “Let my people go!”
  4. Moses proved God’s power through the sending of the plagues.
  5. The people left Egypt in the Exodus.
  6. The miracle of the parting of the Red Sea.

What God did for Moses and his people, God can do for us; even if something seems too big, like the parting of the sea.

Memory verse: Exodus 3:4  God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”      

Don’t forget to ask your children what they are learning in Carpenter’s Corner.  It’s a great way to talk together about our faith!

The  Communion rotation for preschool – 5th grade runs through October 16.

 

The rotation objective is to bring understanding to children about the act of Communion and what it represents. At the conclusion of the Passover meal, Jesus broke the bread, as his body was broken, “in memory of me.” He gave them the cup, as his blood was poured out, as “God’s new covenant.” The covenant was the relationship with God through Christ. In using the bread and wine, Jesus gave his followers a special way to Remember Him. The important things the children will learn from this are:

  1. Remembrance – of Christ’s sacrifice
  2. Celebration – of the new covenant
  3. Ritual – the practice of the church that binds us together

Memory verse: Luke 22:19 “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”     

Don’t forget to ask your children what they are learning in Carpenter’s Corner.  It’s a great way to talk together about our faith!

17 youth and 5 adults from 5 churches in Lake Huron Presbytery traveled to Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN for the high school Triennium conference.  5000 youth gathered immersing themselves in the theme Go: Go and See; Go and Do Likewise; The Way I should Go; Let My People Go; and The Great Commission from Matthew 28:6-20.  We were challenged to look deeply into ourselves to shed the things that hold us back from being true people of God. We left with a better understanding of loving and seeking God in all people. In this way we participate in the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
