On Sunday, Mother's Day, we celebrated those special people in our lives - parents, grandparents, step-parents, foster parents, aunts, uncles, caregivers, church leaders - all those people who have been there for us, loving us, guiding us and helping us along the way.
We put together some little gift baskets to say thank-you and handed them out at the end of the church service. You can watch a video of this, courtesy of MaTCH (Media and Tech @ Chapel Street).
Here is the prayer which was so beautifully led by Angie and Peatalisa:
No family is perfect... we have good days and bad days, joys and sorrows, fun times and bad arguments. Help me to shine Your light into my family. Help us to forgive quickly, and LOVE strongly.
Remind us that every believer in Christ is part of my family. They are my brothers and sisters through You. Help us to grab opportunities to show love to others, to brighten others' days and to help them in any way we can.
Thank you for our families, our church family, and the special people in our lives, who love us.
