In June the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale inspired us with two concerts at our church and several more throughout the valley. We hosted 30 teens in our homes. Their dream of making a better world through song warmed our hearts. We marveled at their musical expertise and dedication to the program. Visit their website www.kidssing.org.
This Summer we have enjoyed two ecumenical worship services at Sayre Park. Joining with our sister churches, First United Methodist, Good Shepherd Lutheran, and St. Barnabas Episcopal, we have sung, prayed, heard the word preached by various pastors, and shared the Lord’s Supper. Following worship we have picnicked with friends from all these churches.
On July 29 we celebrated our Second Annual Living Water Festival – Float, Grill, and Grace at Veltus Park. Due to the fire ban we could not grill burgers, so we enjoyed sloppy joes and root beer floats and much more. Peggy Sconce delivered a thoughtful meditation on traveling as a follower of Jesus. With Jonathan on the keyboard, we sang and prayed.
Rev. Gary Bryant led our communion service, assisted by 4 year old Colee Luetke.
