Summer is almost here!
After May, which is as busy as December but minus the gifts, many of us are looking forward to the slowed pace of summer. We are facing a new pace around BSPC too with Amy on sabbatical, we are trying to find what this summer might bring for us as a church too. We are pausing bedtime Zooms for the summer and will restart those again in the next school year. We are adding 5 intergenerational faith formation events this summer that are short, fun, and meaningful. We also have a great lineup of guest preachers from a diversity of backgrounds and races. Amy’s joke before leaving sabbatical was, “we want our kids to grow up knowing men can be pastors too” haha. Worship, both online and in-person, will allow our kids to see different faces and hear different voices in worship, this is a lovely gift of the summer sabbatical. So even if you’re traveling, tune into worship online when you can to worship with your children and talk about things you notice together! This summer promises more sunshine and with that, we hope it also includes sabbath, play, laughter, and time together.
