Vermonts Colonial Times
We had a really good day today! We had beautiful weather - our sunny, warm stretch is quite unusual for this time of year, and we're enjoying immensely - and we had a good number of people in church this morning. Even Bob, our member who was injured in an attack several weeks ago, was able to be there this morning. It was so good to see him back in his place.
We're trying something new in Sunday school for the next few weeks. Beth helped some friends at another church with their VBS this summer and taught a class on a couple of days. She enjoyed it, so I asked Wes if she could alternate with me for several weeks at a time in teaching Sunday school. He agreed, so she started last week. She is doing well with it and getting some good experience. I also enjoy getting to listen to my husband preach, an added bonus for me! After this series on the book of Judges, I'll pick up again and teach on Ruth.
One of our visitors from Friend Day came back today! That was exciting to see.
I really enjoy the fall season. We have a Couples' Retreat coming up, and we begin thinking toward our annual ladies' Christmas Tea and our Pastor's Open House. Our church anniversary is just around the corner too, in February. Youth activities and Gym Nights have started again, and our annual trip to the Northwest Youth Conference in Portland, OR is in November. So there's plenty of good times coming up. Busy is good!
I hope to get back to posting regularly now that school is in session and things seem to be settling down again. Thanks for your patience - and for coming back! ;) Have a good week!
