Sunday, Dec. 9th - “Forgiving Our Parents”
This Sermon is about seeing parents as imperfect human beings living in an imperfect world who likely did the best, they could under the circumstances in which they lived. Basically, it’s not focused just on fathers or just on mothers because these days, perhaps more often than before, children might be raised by just one or two mothers or just one or two fathers or even one parent and one or more grandparents. The roles of fathers and mothers are not as neatly delineated in our culture as they once were.”
RE: Chapel On Winter Holidays

It is a priority of the Humane Society of Weld County to adopt out healthy and behaviorally sound animals to our caring community.

ISAAC LARGE GROUP MEETING
At Plymouth Congregational Church, Sunday, December 9th, at 3:00p - 4:30p
All are invited to our next ISAAC large group meeting for a talk on the first-hand experiences of a group of Northern Coloradans who are right now participating in a Borderlands learning tour in Arizona. These learning tours are designed to bring awareness of the increasing migrant deaths, militarization, environment degradation, the effects on habitat and the effects on sister communities by the border wall along the Mexico/U.S. Borderlands. Participants increase their understanding and knowledge of the social, economic, political and ethical significance of migration in border communities, including advocacy tools and capacity building to engage others on borderlands and migration issues. We'll also be discussing ISAAC's recent name and mission statement updates, and new ventures for our organization. Mark your calendars for this important and informative meeting.
We hope to see you there!
