This week, our KidZone boys & girls got together at two different homes to bake & decorate Christmas cookies to serve on Sunday, December 22nd at Daybreak's morning service. We had so much fun serving in this way!
Break-Out youth will also be delivering cookies and encouragement to some Daybreak friends who have not been able to make it to church recently due to health issues.
Pastor Dave has been facilitating a 10-week study of Ephesians with this Life Group, meeting weekly on Sunday evenings. The apostle Paul writes this letter from prison to the church in Ephesus. Paul expresses thanksgiving for God's blessings, grace and promise with words overflowing with passion and spiritual joy. He assures the Ephesians: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it's the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast." (Eph 2:8).

Once a month, R & R Retreats meet for a time of Bible teaching, discussion and journaling. The ministry is LiveWell!Ministries - Where Women Come to Life. It is a great time of refreshment and connection with God and other women. The 2013-14 retreat season is themed "The Inseparables", studying the links of Jesus' life to suffering, sacrifice, sanctification, selflessness and serving and how our own lives are linked.
