Finger, Shoofly, and a Funeral

What do FINGER, SHOOFLY, and FUNERAL have in common???

They’re all types of pie!!

Don’t believe me? Look here: http://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/974881/top-10-weirdest-pie-flavors

And we actually need some pies for next weekend’s (3/13-3/14) Middle School Spring Thing (AKA Pi Day Lock-in). WE are hosting middle school youth from all over our Presbytery (yes, I’m a little scared, too…lots of energy!), and it’s going to be a blast!!

  • Could you bring a pie or 2?

    • A Pi Day Lock-in isn’t complete without lots of pies! We’ll take homemade or store-bought, any sweet flavor of pie. (But, please, if it IS a Finger Pie, rename it…please.)
    • Email me (Laurel@valleycommunity.org) to let me know how many you’ll drop by the church (by noon on Fri, 3/13). Thanks!!!!

Here’s What’s Coming Up…

You are an invaluable gift from God. 

You were created to love and to be loved.

Your life is a journey, full of hope and wisdom along the path.

Embrace it! Ask for help! Live it fully! 

(And, for goodness sake, have fun living out God’s gift of you!)
