Thank you to all who reached out about last week’s post. It is heavy but necessary to talk about, and I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and experiences. Now, shall we move on to some fun?
Have you ever made a Bucket List?
Every year, I miss summer (but don’t miss super hot weather). And I have learned to really enjoy Fall (do you?)…so I make a Fall Bucket List to check off new adventures, treasured traditions and things to experience with loved ones. It also helps that Fall is a longer season, and decorations can be left up for a while! Perhaps you’d like to try making a Fall Bucket List, too.
How to Get Started
Make. A. List. I love lists. And for those of you grumbling over lists, this is a FUN list. It is a way to explore local gems in our city and really appreciate where we are in the here and now. Here are a few templates found online to help you get started, one regular and one giving back version:
Consider making a Fall Bucket List, even if it only has 6 items: 2 traditions, 2 new things to try, and 2 ways to serve/support our neighbors. This will be fun! And please let me know what you decided to add to your list.
Happy week! God loves you, and so do we.

October 30 – Trunk or Treat *now with Lunch!
- Come one, come all – it is time to dress up and celebrate! While some of us will “dress up” our vehicles in a fun theme, trick or treaters and their families will go around and join in the fun of creativity and neighborhood connections. We will provide a simple hot dog lunch and backyard games, so stick around for the fun!
- See this week’s Martin City Telegraph ad for our event!
November 6 – All Saints Sunday
- Annually, we remember in Worship saints who have died in the last year, particularly church members and those making a difference in our community. A special activity for the children to give to families whose loved ones have died will be made and gifted, and this is also a time to talk about grief with children in a safe, age-appropriate way that will give families tools for conversations in the present and future.
Have a wonderful week! You are loved.
