Shower with Love

On Sunday after church, the ladies and a few men too from Washington Plaza got together to throw a baby shower. We are so excited that Ally Nauer will soon welcome baby Samantha to her home and thus to our lives as well.

I know that "baby showers" are no big deal in many churches, in fact many have them all the time. But in our case this one was special because this will be our first baby in the church in years. And, Ally is a single mom who just returned from active military service overseas. She and her mom are regular participants and members of the church and we can't wait to support both of them on this new journey. For us, this shower was a great day for us to celebrate Ally, but also to celebrate the new life unfolding in our congregation!   Special thanks to the Congregational Care Committee for putting this event together.
