This is the story of how two very tired parents of a 2.5 yr old and 6 month old went on a date:
Both Husband and his wife saw an announcement on the screen at church about the Date Night Challenge and thought: "There's no way.." while holding a squirmy baby and a toddler who kept whining, "I don't LIKE going to church! I wanna go home!
After repeated exposure to said announcement week after week, Wife starts thinking, " Maybe we could try to do something date-like. It's been a while since our last date..."

One day recently while teaching Playschool here at Summerland Baptist, the kids inspired me! It was clean up time...

My friends, Jesus is calling.
In a way that I cannot deny, Jesus has called me to embrace a new ministry role and a new beginning in a new location. We did not seek this call and therefore repeatedly tested it with the Lord seeking confirmation. He provided that confirmation with incredible clarity and consistency...

Every year, on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, SBC hangs heart-shaped prayer requests that have been printed out by our SBC Kids and hung from the ceiling in the foyer. Our church foyer looks beautiful and seeing the hearts reminds us to love and to pray for the kids God has given to our church family...
