YOUTH LEAD: 2018 Leadership Weekend
Jesus calls us to, "Love one another as I have loved you" John 13:34
We are presented with opportunities to "love one another" all the time, yet it can be difficult to recognize these moments through all the noise and interference that exist in today's world. Even when we recognize the moments to “love one another,” to become “Disciple Leaders,” we may not know how or why we should do so.
Join us on this weekend of faith, fellowship and fun as we learn about Jesus's love for us and how we can grow to become "Disciple Leaders" in our homes, communities, schools and work.
This year's retreat location will be held at Guggenheim on the weekend of September 28-30
The ticket price for this all-inclusive retreat is $70.00 *Workshops, meals, and accommodations, included*

(for the September 22/23 Bulletin)
Fashion is an industry that harms the environment especially Fast Fashion which is clothing that is produced quickly and inexpensive. Items of clothing thrown away are filling up landfills at an alarming rate of 12.8 million tons of textile. Repurposing clothing you have outgrown can give others less fortunate something to wear. Works of love directed to one's neighbor are the most perfect external manifestation of the interior grace of the Spirit…. – Pope Francis
(for the September 29/30 Bulletin)
“I come away from my walk in the woods reminded that the world and all creation are so immense and that I am so small. Not that I don’t matter. To the Creator of the universe, we all matter. But I am a part of something so much bigger that I can’t fully grasp. That awareness brings me a sense of both awe and peace. My struggles matter, but they are just one part of a vast universe. I can go forward a little more calmly and make a humble decision, trusting in the God who created all.”--Pope Francis Take a walk outside today and think about how much it matters to take care of Creation.
