Our Feb 14 staff meeting included (as we do once a month) South Sound ministers Dana & Gin Perkins, and Marcus & Noemi Wallace. We were able to pray together that morning for special needs in the church, and for those close to a decision for Christ. In addition, we discussed details of church discipline, how we would film a “20/20 Vision” segment for Disciples Today (and for us to see in Seattle!), and feedback about last Friday’s “Family Connections” outreach night. Scott taught a lesson to the men (“How we know what love is”) and Linda Brumley taught the women’s discipleship group.
Some of the news from the meeting:
- The Balsoms’ adopted son was recently baptized into Christ. Jeff has served an elder in the Chicago church and is currently battling a challenging cancer. The Brumleys have been close to them for many years.
- The ongoing BC revival featured the baptism of Stephanie Morais. At her baptism Stephanie thanked all the teen leaders who had walked with her over many years.
- Many athletes are coming to the UW “athletes'” Bible Talk, led by the Whitakers and anchored by our football brother Andrew Hudson, whose humility baffles and inspires his teammates.
- On MLK Day, disciples helped canvas over 4000 homes in the cause of fire prevention
