Meeting Re-cap! April 6th!!

HAPPY EASTER to you all!!
We trust you each had a great and relaxing Easter Weekend!!
It was so good to celebrate the Lord's death and resurrection!!

Today we started with good BABY NEWS:
Michelle S. is having a BOY!!
Congrats !!!!

Today our creative activity was making book thongs! Otherwise known as book marks w/ string and beads!! I can never find a book mark when I need one! Problem solved!!

Our topic today was "living together with God"! Our DVD message focused on God's faithfulness to us in thick and thin. He is always there! He didn't just put us on this earth and say, "have at it"! He intended to go through life with us, if we let him! AWESOME!!

The Steering Team came up with a list of book recommendations for us all to take home! These are just some of the books that they like for helping us in our journey of living together with God.
