Passover.... final home church meeting

well here we are at the end of April and ending our little home church group for the year.  We've met weekly since the end of October (except for a few health bumps).  We ended our time with our study in I Corinthians with the chapter 13, the 'Love' chapter.  This led to some great discussion and contemplation, I found it to be particularly fitting as this was the very text talked about on the Doorposts blog this week to study.

After a good discussion we headed to the dining room to celebrate the passover feast. Joe & Barb organized this and directed the celebration.  I think as you can see it was a very informative time for all ages.  It's awesome to see and contemplate God's plan through the ages.

March Memories

It's both hard to believe March has come and gone and exciting.  Well exciting if the winter weather ever truly decides to exit Pennsylvania!!!  Here it was 70 degrees yesterday and today it's been hailing, snowing, raining, and blowing all day.  We are very anxious for 60 deg. to come and stay so we can start tilling, pruning, and planting. 

So here we are at April, Ellen celebrated her 18th birthday this past weekend.  She is thrilled to be 18, something she has been looking forward to all  year.  She is looking forward to a busy summer doing her college internship with TJZ Creations and doing a few weddings on her own.  So most weekends she'll be somewhere snapping photos of a lovely bride and groom and she says spending as much time at Deep Creek as she can. 

Speaking of Deep Creek, Amy, Emma and I went to an overnight Ladies' Retreat last weekend with the ladies from Pleasant View Baptist Church.  It was a nice little getaway and time to reaquaint with our church family there.  We are looking forward to seeing them on a regular basis soon. 

As for our home fellowship we will be meeting twice more this month.  We will have our normal service on Sunday, then on Palm Sunday we will finish out our time with celebrating the Passover Meal together after our service.  We are hoping all of our families will be here, but one is expecting a new little blessing anytime now so we'll just have to wait and see when he's going to make his debut.  We will finish up our Wed. night meetings this month as well.  Right now we are in the planning and praying process of what we'll do over the summer.
