It was a little cloudy and cool - perfect weather for s’mores at Camp Egan on Friday night. We have had several years during Confirmation retreats when a burn ban was in place, so we had to make do with ice cream sundaes - but not this year. There is something about standing around a fire together that creates happy memories.
A visit from John Wesley helped kick off our time together. There were 35 of us at Egan, and thanks to the leadership of the Rev. Guy Langston, we came away knowing more about our United Methodist heritage and faith. Thank you to everyone who helped make this a perfect weekend for our sixth graders.
CROP Walk is on my radar this week. I hope you have signed up to walk in solidarity with those around the world who are less fortunate when it comes to food and water availability. We are walking together on September 28th. Sign up for a pizza lunch right after church or come back at 1:30 ready to walk with our group. We will be “doing all the good we can,” so come along and help make the world a better place.
We took lots of pictures around Tulsa last Wednesday with Wandering Wesley! This week we have Lego-lympics and a service project; next week a speaker from Operation Aware is planned. Join us from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings for our mid-week ministry just for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
Open gym from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in Jubilee Hall is a great place to get some exercise on Wednesday evenings and the invitation is always open to sing with the Chapel Choir.
Sunday morning classes continue to study John Wesley with creativity and lots of fun. After all he did say “set yourself on fire with enthusiasm and people will come to watch you burn.” Our mid-high youth have the enthusiasm and would love to share what they are learning. Join us on the third floor!
Enthusiastically yours - Debbie
