Man… looking back at the past month we had a lot going on… and there’s a lot to be thankful for. We kicked off the month with our annual Comedy Night Fundraiser where we raised $1400 for Val’s local foodbank ministry and the nearby Mercies of God men’s rehab center. We had a fun night… great food, great laughs, and we got to help a couple of great local ministries. Special thanks to Lori Stasney and her team for the awesome meal!Men’s Retreat
The following week, we left bright and early on Monday morning for our annual men’s retreat. There were eight of us who spent 3 days down on Corcovado Peninsula. Outside of not getting the kind of surf we were hoping for, we had an incredible time enjoying God’s creation, growing deeper in faith, and stronger in fellowship. I think we all left that week already looking forward to next year’s retreat.

As we look to the month ahead, we are super excited about the parenting Course that will be kicking off this Thursday, September 22nd. We have 19 folks signed up representing ten local families.

And we’d like to say a speical thanks to local restaurants Wok n’ Roll, Sprout, Jalepenos, Lori’s Country Kitchen =), and Eat-at-Joe’s for preparing meals for our sessions.
