Living His Love

Wild Flower Presbyterian Church

Our Job

No comments

The Holy Spirit’s job is to convict,
God’s job to judge,
and my job to love.
~ Billy Graham

As we “live into God’s love” in our Mission Statement, it means to let go of the other jobs. Sometimes that can happen as we try to show God’s love through us and we are changed. Sometimes it is because we are changed and so filled with God’s love that we find those other jobs of convicting, criticizing and judging others having been automatically given over to God already.

Thanks to the creativity of Peggy Jensen our sanctuary was transformed into the outdoors where the kids all gathered around the campfire.

Come and learn more about the roots of our Christian celebration of the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper as we share together as Jesus did with His Disciples in the Upper Room on the night of His arrest.

Worship begins at 6:30 p.m. and includes uplifting music and sharing the symbolism of the six specifically Jewish elements as well as sharing the Sacrament Jesus called us to share in remembrance of Him.

Anyone interested in exploring membership at Wild Flower Presbyterian Church is invited to attend our New Member class on Monday, April 7.

Our WoW Children’s Christmas program is on Wednesday, December 18 at 6:00 p.m.

The evening will start by sharing a meal with BBQs provided and side dishes or desserts that you might bring. Then we will enjoy the program presented by the youth led by Nichole Stoll.

1:30 p.m. Bible study has been cancelled for Wednesday, Dec. 4, but as of 12:30 p.m. the youth activities: HS Collision and WoW at 6:00 p.m. are still planned as we expect the snow to stop falling by then.

We have invited many in the neighborhood east of Wild Flower church to come and enjoy hot dogs and ice cream with games for all ages.

This will be the first time we have hosted this kind of an event, but we pray that God will use it as a blessing.

Our summer Vacation Bible School will be Monday-Friday, August 5-9, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. each evening. Our theme this year is God & Me @ Sea.

We will have a lot of fun and interaction as we look at Bible stories including: God’s creation, Noah and the Ark, Jonah and the whale, Jesus walking on the water and calming the storm, and the Disciples catching fish.

There will be songs, games and snacks that interconnect with the lessons to make this a fun and rewarding experience.

Peggy Jensen brought some perennials she was given and laid down a weed screen and planted them with assistance from Marilyn Parham, Roger Parham and Jeanne Marsh. Jim St Clair offered assistance Friday to spread wood chips. We have struggled over the years to have a “wildflower” garden as a theme to go with the name of our church. The problem is that many wild flowers bloom for a short period and then look a lot like weeds that have left the garden looking a bit shaggy and unkempt. So, we are trying to put a better face on this visible area when visitors drive into our lot.
