Family Faith Formation ~ Make faith formation a part of birthday celebrations this year. Give thanks to God for the birthday person and share some of the ways that person blesses your family and others. Talk about the unique gifts God has given him or her. Or pass birthday candles out to family members and ask them to name one thing they love about the birthday person before placing the candle on the cake. Affirmation is the best birthday gift of all! (Faith Formation Ministries: crcna.org/FaithFormation).

This event is where women come together to worship and glorify God and grow in their relationships with other women. More information is available at the Welcome Table.

Understanding Death and Christ’s Return ~ Many of us find the subject of death uncomfortable. It doesn’t need to be.
Study I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 with Groundwork to remember the hope we have and grasp the clarity Paul provides regarding a Christian understanding of death and why it relates directly to Christ’s return. Listen at GroundworkOnline.com.
