one for all

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit 
through the bond of peace.” 
Ephesians 4:3  

This verse was the theme for our annual staff retreat last weekend,

Amy and Elise move empty cans from table to table using  a strand of spaghetti
a time for playing together

A Minute To Win It competitions: Michael, the champion TP unroller!

Mark flips and catches a whole stack of pencils
  demonstrating little-known talents

and cheering others on.

There was time for prayer, 
reflecting on God's Word,

and singing together in more than one language!

Like the Three Musketeers,
the motto was
One for all
and all for One!

reminding us that the One,
Christ Jesus,
is for us,
so we can give all for Him;
the One deserving of our all.

Michael prepares to launch a ball
Then more games like group Dodge ball

Elise competes with Mr. H. for the ball
and group soccer

...interspersed with lots of food and fellowship.

We're so thankful for this amazing group of people.
You challenge us, 
make us laugh,
encourage us, 
and point us to Christ.
We are privileged to be here with you!
