A Day with "Old" friends

Where did these kids come from????

Nice photo bomb Maddie!

Tuesday, July 15, 2014


We got together with other kids from our church and went to a local nursing home to make a craft with the seniors living there.  The kids also sang a few of their VBS songs.  The seniors loved it.  Our kids were able to show God's love in a very simple and tangible way.

Happy Mother's Day!

Ann Jarvis was thrilled when President Wilson declraed Mother's Day a holiday in 1914 and wrote to Wilson to thank him, saying that the day would be “a great Home Day of our country for sons and daughters to honor their mothers and fathers and homes in a way that will perpetuate family ties and give emphasis to true home life.”
