Blessing of the Animals – Sunday, September 24, 1:00 pm, under the carport outside Dettmann Hall
Listen to the words of Jesus… “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” —Matthew 25:40
 
This is a day of serving those we might consider “the least” of the kingdom of God. We gather  to honor St. Francis of Assisi, a saint who listened to God, who took care of creation, and who ministered to animals.
 
Animals are indeed important in our lives. We live with them. We play with them. They give us comfort and joy. But animals also help to nourish us. On this day, we honor both our pets and those animals who give us food, work on our farms, and are part of the cycle of life on our earth.
We also look to the example of Francis of Assisi in serving and giving to others.
 
Come to have your animal receive a personal blessing from Pastor Catherine.
 
 

 

 

Faith Community in Action

  Crossroads Kids Club at Tioga

One-by-one they arrive at the school – laden with curriculum notebooks – ready to show their identification – allowed to enter the fortress exactly at 3:00 pm – coming with one purpose in mind – to share the love of God and the Good News of Jesus Christ with the Tioga Wolves! (That’s the Tioga Elementary mascot – the Wolves).

Our first afternoon of Crossroads Kids Club was a success! Thirty-five 3rd-5th grade students attended with 11 volunteer mentor/teachers from Faith Community. This dynamic team is composed of the following people: Jan Zator, Virginia Skinkys, Marcy Carr, Barb Seltzer, Rexene Carlstrom, Sue and Keith Schmitz, Randy Putman, Leo Figueroa, and Kevin DeCherrie.

The next week we were gifted with forty-five young people with a potential of fifty-four kids with completed sign-up sheets!! Thank God for the growth!! Now we need more mentors!!

With awesome Bible storytelling, science projects, praying, singing, crafts, dancing, games, treats, and prizes, our Faith Community crusaders are prevailing even over the offers by parents of “Either soccer or Kids Club!”

Energized by compassion, commitment, and craziness – this team will continue telling the story of God’s Love every Wednesday during the school year – until the last Wolves shall lie down with the lambs!
