Clearly words that Jesus spoke, yes, but also a call for all of us, especially those with children, to come and welcome our two new staff members for children and their families: Mardi Bowen and Lyndsey Gerhart. Their selections come in part out of our Healthy Church Initiative prescription to strategically reach younger families. Mardi was our Minister with Children & Families once before with excellence from 2008-2015. Lindsey is our new Director of Children's Music, and she's finishing her undergraduate in education at UNT. Like our church, these two women feel the call of God to reach children and their families with vital connections to God and grace.  

I challenge you to help these two women do their jobs well by doing yours: bring the children and do not hinder them for to such belongs the kingdom of God (Luke 18:16.).

See you in worship this Sunday,


Matt Gaston
Lead Pastor
