More Smiles

Here are a few more pictures of people smiling!
If you haven't seen the first blog with SMILES, scroll down!
A friend of mine shared this verse on her blog and I wanted to share it with you! We have been studying prayer and different things to include in our prayer during Roots...the first was Adoration...this starts with Praise the Lord, O my soul!! Praise Him for the benefits he provides!

Psalm 103:1-5
Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Smile for the camera!

I've neglected picture taking the last month or so....
Here are a few smiley shots from different events...
I promise to bring you new and up-to-date pictures soon...
(and don't worry...if you aren't included in a picture, my camera will be clicking away soon!)

After LifeGroups

After LifeGroups, Mike shared some of his tricks with everyone. Some of the Youth couldn't figure them out! Regardless, we had a great time together!

Our God is a creative God...disagree?? Look around!

We should be creative as well, using creativity as a form of worship. And that is just what we did at LifeGroups last Thursday!

A night with Third Day, Brandon Heath, and Revive

I will have to post more pictures later (I don't seem to have my camera cord when I want to blog) but wanted to at least put this group picture online.

We had a great time at the Third Day, Brandon Heath, Revive concert Sunday evening. Although the wind got a little chilly, the evening of worship and fellowship was a blast!
