Last Sunday Ben and Ashley led us in our series Surprised by Hope,
which we will continue for the next two weeks. We talked about the
Hope of the Resurrection. This series has been really interesting with
lots of great discussion.
Thank you to Daniel and Cat for hosting our Pool Party last
Saturday...a good time was had by all!
I only have one topic for discussion this week, and I need some
feedback. Rodney Whitfield mentioned that there are studies that show
sometimes full classrooms can make visitors feel like the class is
full, and there isn't any room for them. We had discussed getting a
larger room in the past and hopefully we will be filling up our room
again once summer is over. There has been recent construction to
create some larger rooms so I emailed Elizabeth Wilson. She gave us a
couple of options but mentioned something for us to consider. As the
children in our class get older and start going to Sunday School
instead of the nursery, they will be going at 9:45am. This may become
an issue with our class meeting at 11:00am. I know that we enjoy our
later time, but we do have some kiddos approaching the age at which
they can no longer go to the nursery. Blaire is currently working on
businesses cards for us to have on hand, but we need to make a
decision about time and room before she can print them. We can discuss
this further in class on Sunday, but Elizabeth needs to know by August
10th since the rooms are quickly filling up with other classes and
Joys and Concerns:
-Brad, Kristin, and Baby Brayden are doing well.
-Slate is doing well, running around full of energy, and as sweet as
ever. Heath and Courtney wanted to thank everyone for all of the meals
and support. We will continue to keep them in our prayers as they make
decisions regarding Slate's care.
-Daniel C got a new job and will start after the baby comes
-Christy is on bedrest until the baby comes...watch for another Care
Hope to see you all on Sunday...I'm off to meet Baby Brayden!
