ReJoicing Spirits is growing!

We are finally picking up momentum! Our service was advertised in the Uniondale Beacon and in Newsday’s faith calendar!!!
We have also reached some of the group homes in our community. Yesterday we had visitors from 3 local homes attend our service. Not that we are counting (well maybe just a little:) but, our service had almost 30 attendees: staff, morning worshippers who came back, caregivers and those with learning disabilities.
We tried an activity for the first time. Upon entering our building people were asked to make a pretzel with some bread dough. During the service they were baked by our staff and we enjoyed them after service. Our theme for the day was prayer. We talked about different ways to pray. We folded our arms like a pretzel and learned about the monk who made pretzels to remind people to pray. It was well received lesson and the aroma of the baking bread added an additional sensory element.
As we said in our service: God is good all the time! All the time, God is good!!!
