On Sunday Jan 12th my family’s parish Trinity Lutheran Church was visited by Avery Hawley who serves as Community Engagement Manager at Briarwood Retreat Center/Briarwood Leadership Center. She presented about summer camp and did a wonderful children’s sermon. If you would like a visit from Avery this spring to encourage your families to consider summer camp please contact Briarwood (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Also coming up this next weekend I am excited to host a men’s service weekend at Briarwood. Dan Lund from The Church Of Damascus Road Prison Ministry will be with us to present on how we are partners in NT-NL Synod, ELCA with him in serving those incarcerated. There is still time to register. You can do so https://www.ntnl.org/2020-briarwood-mens-service-retreat/.
While at Briarwood next weekend I will also check in with the King of Glory Lutheran Church, Dallas youth who are having their discipleship weekend retreat there. Lots of exciting events also around the MLK Day weekend. Worship at St. Johns, Dallas on Sunday the 19th at 3pm. Please join us. #NTNL #BWTX #InMissionTogether
