This Summer brings a time of hard work and exams for some and for others a chance for an easier pace of life. Is it a time of preparation for change or a time to refresh old habits? May we always remember that at whatever stage of life we are; God is with us. May we be excited about the future and encourage others.
Recently the Toddler Group raised £71 in a Good as New Sale, which will go to support the Baby Grow Appeal in Chester Hospital and Frodsham Food Bank. Not only did we raise money but many went home pleased with the items they had brought and the people who sold gained some extra cash too.
In July the Toddler Group will be holding the Summer Beach party where we will say Farewell to the oldest children, who will be starting school in September. For some families this is an end to many years of coming to Toddlers and we send them on their way with God’s Blessings and a hope that our paths cross again in the future.
Pippa and I are taking the Moving On books into some of the Frodsham Schools this term. This little booklet gives the Year 6 children an opportunity with us to discuss their hopes and fears about their move to High school. During the session it’s a real privilege to remind the children that God is their faithful friend who understands them and is only a prayer away.
I was presented with this verse recently and asked what is God saying to you through this verse. So, in faith, I am presenting this verse to you and asking you what is God saying to you in these words?
“God, your God, is leading the way: he’s fighting for you. You saw with your own eye what he did for you in Egypt: you saw what he did in the wilderness, how God your God, carried you as a father carries his child, carried you the whole way until you arrived here.” (Deuteronomy 1 :31)
I am always amazed at the different responses of people; of the ways in which God touches us and works through us. The future is exciting; may we allow God to renew, inspire and excite us.
Are you up for a challenge this summer?
Do you want to do a sponsored walk to raise money for our Church Charity? Are you around on Saturday 20th or Sunday 21st August? I am thinking of walking an 11-mile trail, starting from the Pontcysyllite Aqueduct at Trevor. Please get in touch if you are interested.
