Teach me your paths…”
The words above are quoted from Psalm 25. Similar words are found in various places throughout the Bible and they indicate a desire on the part of the writer to walk in the ways of God – the ways of truth – the ways of righteousness – the ways of life. This Sunday in worship we will celebrate what we have come to call
. As a part of the celebration we will consider what it means for each of us to walk in the ways of God.
The church and those who serve here desire to partner with you, the parent, in helping teach our children these ways in the world. Through worship, faith formation classes and practices, relationship building with peers, teachers, small group leaders, mentors, and guides, and mission and service opportunities, we seek to walk with Jesus. He is “the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.” (Hebrews 12) He is the Prince of Peace, the Good Shepherd, the Bread of Life, and the Lamb of God. It is good to walk with Jesus.
Summer isn’t a time to break from all this. It is a time to engage in new and creative ideas that take us from our tired routines and open new worlds of possibilities. Take advantage of the resources that are available (see below) through our Faith Formation ministries or find your own new resource. Try something new this summer as a family that will help you learn to walk more faithfully on the path of God. Re-commit yourself and your family to a journey with and for God.
To God be the Glory!
