It was so great to have everyone from our small group over to our house for a BBQ. This is the first time they all were able to come visit us. So we gave them a 5 cent tour of our house. haha. While we were waiting for the food to cook we shared about what we are all doing for the summer. Most people are traveling East. But not us, we are going to the Soo (North).
You can see from all the pictures how much fun we all had. Great food, friends and conversations. The kids even had fun with our sprinkler and slides. So thankful to be able to share our amazing backyard with our friends from our small group. Loved it!
We have learned we need to tell Faith and Shawn about what we are doing so there are no surprises. So we told the kids before we left this morning that we were going to our small group and they would see all their friends.
So on our way to our family small group Faith started to sing “on my way to small groups, small groups. I have to go to small groups.” Then she said to her brother, “we have to go to small groups Shawn.” And Shawn said “ya, me either!”
We both laughed as Faith continued to sing her small group jingle.
What a great day at the FEB Central conference today.
So great to see so many of my pastor friends. It’s been awhile. I saw some of the pastors I worked with when I was on the Youth Commission, pastors I actually worked for when I was on staff with them and even some guys who interviewed me when I was looking for a new church. But the one that was most memorable was a pastor who was in my very first youth ministry as a teen, now an associate in Pembroke.
I also was able to attend some great workshops, one with Dr. Charles Price as the special guest and another about theology issues we need to be aware of that our congregations are concerned about or at least thinking about. So helpful and informative.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s conclusion to the conference.
We just had another fantastic Easter service this morning, at the Living Arts Centre–in the heart of Mississauga. What a powerful day with amazing worship, great message from Mark 16 and wonderful friends and family! I just love this church family and how much you love and care for their friends enough to bring them out today to hear the Truth–Jesus died on the cross for our sins and if you believe he has forgiven your sins, you will have eternal life (John 3:16).
Check out the pictures and video of a small glimpse of what we experienced. Hope you can join us next year.
