Sunday – a day of sending

What a great feeling to be part of a church community!  This morning we spend worshiping and serving alongside Covenant Church.  Several people of the SERVE team volunteered in various ways, such as handing out bulletins, greeting at the door, serving coffee, playing with the worship team, and teaching children’s sunday school.

Shellie spoke about our theme and how SERVE is a great opportunity to follow God’s call on us to serve others, but how it doesn’t just end there – there’s the whole “Other 51” weeks of the year!  The church then prayed for the team and our work as we SERVE others and learn more about following God.


 

The afternoon was spent learning about Manitoba’s history at Lower Fort Garry.  We got to see the sights, tour the buildings, and even touch real animal pelts!

At the end of the guided tour, Shellie determined that Ryan and Riley needed some “jail time” for their shenanigans while the rest of us went and hid around the fort.  They they had to find us 🙂  A lot of laughs and good times were had!

We had a great time and in the group picture we’re showing “5” and “1” with our hands to show the theme: The Other 51

During Sunday evening, we spent more time as “Knights-in-Training”.  Sir Shellie talked to us about what we fill our time with, and how worshiping and serving God should be part of all aspects of our lives.

We’ve also been learning a fun new song called “Stand Together” (Click here to hear the song and see the actions).  Good thing we had the guys helping lead us tonight!  We hear Mike really likes leading actions 😉IMG_6813


After our training time, the Jesters once again led us in a crazy game!  Tonight was an epic battle of gold smuggling and sword fighting!

We can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
