October is known as Pastor Appreciation Month. Last Sunday we were pleased to have a soup dinner (This year I made Chicken Noodle Soup – see post from last Oct.) at church in honor of Pastor Wayne and Tammy. They are both a blessing to the community and our church. As a family, we are especially thrilled that they will be a part of J and K’s Big Day (Only about a month away!) as Pastor Wayne will be officiating the marriage ceremony!
In other church news…I have taken on a new volunteer role this fall working with the STARS after school program on Wednesday afternoons. My job is to help all 64 children to memorize Bible verses. Since September we have been working on Psalm 121 and last Wednesday we recited the verse as a group in front of the parents who came for a monthly supper. They did a great job! Next up is Psalm 100.
Psalm 121 New International Version (NIV)
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
We are thankful for a good fall so far! We just pray that everyone continues to have a safe harvest.
