Tonight we shared a wonderful array of berry-themed treats: homemade strawberry ice cream, blueberry compote, fresh-picked strawberries, strawberry shortcake, a delightful fruit tart and strawberry pie. It was absolutely necessary to sample every one!

While we enjoyed the berry-ness, we discussed our new mission statement/motto: Real people of real faith, meeting real needs. We looked at the three sections of the motto and scripture that will guide us in each of those areas. It was a great blessing as we continue to move forward serving the Lord.
