MOMS Summer Updates
Holy Spirit Parish at Geist
A note from your facilitators:
We can't believe the 2016-17 year is coming to a close.
We thank all of you who joined our ministry this year. You have rejoiced together, grieved together, prayed together and carried each other through many seasons. We are grateful for you. We also thank our entire 2016-17 leadership team: Erin, Michelle, Chrissy, Dawn, Shannon and Ashley for the hard work that they put in to sustain and grow our ministry this year. We have been truly blessed.
We look forward to refreshing and renewing ourselves during the summer months, and we pray that you have sacred moments this summer where you will feel God's nearness to you: in the picnics and sunsets and fireflies, in sunny days in the pool and long evenings on the patio. And as you shuttle your kids to activities, apply sunscreen, make sandwiches, pack for vacations, wipe noses, change diapers and wash floors. . .know that God is watching you with so much love in His heart. We may be hard on ourselves, but God is too busy loving us to be anything but proud. You work hard for your family every day, and God sees you and knows how much you do to build His kingdom right there in your four walls. Carry on, mamas! God loves you and so do we. We'll see you this summer!

Prayers for Blake!
We have another prayer chain going for the Everson family, because WE BELIEVE in the power of prayer! We'll pray over Blake's radiation every day until it is complete!
The approximate time of his radiation is 10 am CT M-F until June 19, with a MRI every Monday at 4pm. Blake is such an awesome patient that the treatment time is just about 30 minutes long. The radiation itself only lasts 1-2 minutes of that time. You can offer your prayers for Blake on the day you sign up for in a way that works best for you! There are as many ways to pray as there are people so your prayers will be a unique and precious offering to God for Blake and his family. Sign up for as many slots as you would like to take, and as many people can sign up on a day as would like to pray.
Summer playdates on the HSG playground
We'll meet every Thursday morning starting at 10 am. We also have permission this year to use the HSG gym in the event of rain or extreme heat. We are in need of mamas to take turns being the hostess/co-hostess every week, so check out the sign up on volunteer spot and please sign up for a week that you can help! http://signup.com/go/qqAnjUl
