    Saturday, October 7, from 9am-3pm
    Chapel in the Pines Presbyterian Church
    Cost: $35
    Led by Rev. Carrie Rhoads Tuttle

    In the busy world in which we live, our friendships often take a backseat to the many other parts of our lives that demand our attention. However, friendships are a crucial part of our lives, particularly our spiritual lives.

    We’ll ask ourselves: What is a spiritual friendship? Why do I need nurturing friendships in my life?

    Childcare for age 10 and under is available by request for $10 per child. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please bring a journal, a pen, and your Bible.

    Register and pay online or complete and return the form with payment by Monday, October 2.

    Growing in Gratitude

    What they say really is true: a life lived in gratitude really is better. We Christians have known that from the very beginning, and we Presbyterians believe that faithfulness means living a life in gratitude to what God has first done for us.

    Come and learn practices of gratitude, and learn how to cultivate an eye for the abundance of all God’s good gifts. Find out the difference between “positive thinking” and genuine gratitude. Discover the deep wells of wisdom in our tradition about how to live a grateful life.
