On Sunday, May 11th,  we at Connect celebrated with several families of young children. The Bible tells us that God had a plan for passing on faith to the next generation of people and that that was through families. Thousands of years ago, God, through Moses, made a covenant (or agreement) with his people, and part of that covenant included a promise by parents to raise their children in the ways of God. 

In the days of Jesus, He said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them...for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these..."

It is in that rich tradition of faith that spans the centuries, that we are privileged to present the following children to God:

Olivia Mae Louise Clemence, daughter of Barrett and Jennifer.

Calissa Elizabeth Cory, daughter of Rian and Krista.

Ethan Nathaniel Jungman, son of Allan and Tanya.

Samara Helen Morey, daughter of Peter and Tracy.

Oliver Warren Jones, son of Kristina and Brant.

Ty Alexander and Ashton William Jungman, sons of Adrian and Kim.

 Dean holds Samara Morey and speaks with her mother, Tracy.
