He is Risen!

Easter was a big day (naturally) at our church for the Youth Group. They starred in the Sonrise Service. Served Egg Bake between the Tradition and Contemporary Worship Services. They ran an Easter Egg Hunt.

Here are a few pictures from that day. Easter Egg Hunt photo credit to Jaxon Schoff.












































I hope your Easter was as wonderful as mine and these photos only cover about 4 hours of my wonderful Easter!

Confirmed!

A couple of Sundays ago was Confirmation Sunday in my church. It was a big day for the Youth Group as 5 members became full members of the church AND for the Methodist Men as we served a brunch in between services to celebrate their accomplishments.

Here are a few pictures from the day:




































All 5 of these kids bring such wonderful, unique, and amazing dimensions to our church. I’m excited to see where their faith journeys take them.

March

Now would be a good time to check in on the Selfie Project. I’ve attempted and failed at this project 3 times now. The farthest I’ve ever made it is 116 days. I feel like this just might be the year.

Here are some of my favorites from March:

Biscuits and Gravy

A few weeks back, the Methodist Men had a Biscuits & Gravy Breakfast Fundraiser. Here are a few cruddy cell phone pictures from the event:

It was quite the success! In fact, might have been too big of a success. We actually ran out of gravy. An error that will not be repeated in future Methodist Men meals.

The Dome

Last Sunday Mom, Teresa, Vi, and I loaded up into the car and traveled to the great north to visit Andrea, Josh, Wesley, and Grace. It was a great time, but perhaps the highlight was going up into Andrea’s church’s dome with Josh.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip:
