For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. [O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!]
From Bud Burk, Pastor for Children & Family Discipleship, Downtown Campus
God was pleased to bring 23 fathers and their daughters in grades 4–6 to Trout Lake Camp on Oct 3–4. The theme for the weekend was “Tales of the King” as we looked upon the glory of the Son in the Word. I had the privilege of sitting in the “front row,” watching fathers laugh, play, and pray with their girls. I saw men loving their daughters in very special ways.
From Pastor Kenny Stokes
As an adoptive parent myself, I want to make sure that you are aware of the Empowered to Connect Conference 2015 taking place this weekend at Grace Church, Eden Prairie. The conference will be held Friday & Saturday, September 18 &19, 9am–5pm.
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
