Gobble & Squash: Thank You!

November 30, 2022A Note from Nikki Buskirk Dear Friends, Sitting around the table as we prepare to have dinner, my family does the time-honored tradition of saying what we are thankful for. I thought it was rather cringe-worthy when we started doing it, but now it’s kind of a check-in-with-kids-and-each-other moment. It helps us as parents start conversations with the boys, and it helps us check in with each other. This year’s answers were a mixed bag. Silas said he’s…

Wednesday Community Supper Resumes INSIDE!

August 10, 2022A Note from Beth Latella Dear Friends, Feed My Lambs — join the Wednesday Supper Team! What do cooking and quilting have in common?

Feed My Sheep

July 20, 2022A Note from Pastor Jon Dear Friends, A short while after Jesus first appears to the disciples following his resurrection, the disciples had left Jerusalem and had seemingly returned to their prior jobs, as we discover in the Gospel according to John. Seven of the disciples, including Peter, had returned north to The Galilee and had resumed fishing. John’s Gospel (chapter 21) says that early one morning Jesus was standing on the shore while the seven were in…
