Friday Faith Builder

On Sunday night, May 15th, the fifth graders celebrated their faith passage to “Journey On!” to sixth grade! The evening was filled with food, games, praise and worship, and friendship, and faith. Middle school minister, Taylor Ogden Thomas talked with both kids and parents about all the opportunities for faith, fun and friendship that will be coming up in the sixth grade. Teri Chalker, leader for the fifth grade youth group Wild 1’s, sent the kids forward on their faith journey by asking everyone to share together in the reading of this poem. Take some time to read it with your family. Blessings on the journey!

Awesome God,
We give thanks to You for the gifts You have given us:
life, family, friends,
time, talents, and material possessions.
All that we have comes from You.
Help us to remember this.

Walk with us, Lord
Guide us today, tomorrow and everyday
as we grow in our faith.
Renew in us your Spirit.
Give us the strength and courage
to become better followers of Jesus;
to become His disciples.
Help us hear the call to "Come, Follow Me."
