November 2019

From Our Youth Director

              “Ohana means family”, like so many other Disney phrases, resonates.  In my home, teaghlach, familia, and famille also means family as well.  When we say “family” as Christians, we don’t mean the people listed on your family tree.  We mean all those who are joined together, unified by the holy trinity. 

             This holiday season, we will be joining a branch of our family that we don’t get to visit often.  Pastor Ginny Krekling and I have joined together to bring more meaning to our Youth group’s holiday season.  We will be sharing a Harvest Festival, Advent event, and Epiphany celebrations as Christian families bound together through our faith and love for our Lord and Savior.  Our holiday schedule will not be as full, but more meaningful instead. 

                In the commercial hustle and bustle of life that starts November 1, don’t forget to make time for your family in Christ.  Otherwise known as Ohana, teaghlach, familia, famille, šeima, сім'я, οικογένεια, משפחה, 家庭, rodina, reerka, družina, familie, aiga, family.
