Scene from Men's Theological Forum.

Six men attended the forum to discus the role of the father in bestowing the legacy of Orthodoxy to their Children. Theo Poulos, the ministry leader, used an article on the subject by Fr. Lawrence Farley. He presented seven ways. Each way stimulated a lively discussion. They were: 1.Make sure you know Jesus 2. Make prayer the main occupation of your life. 3. Make an Icon corner the heart of your home. 4. Look for opportunities for intercession. 5. Be honest in answering questions. 6. Be involved your kids lives. 7. Rejoice in the Lord. 8. Pray for them.

He told the audience how Jill took over after the previous site manager could not continue because of health. Fr. Andrew said " just this past week she was picking up homeless women and children with her own car because the PADS bus was not running, she is truly deserving of this award.

Children's Sermon For May

Scene from Children's Sermon For May.

Fr. Andrew is holding the sleeping bag he has used on mission trips. He used it to explain the healing of the paralytic at the sheep's pool. He asked the children about why Jesus asked the man if he wanted to be healed, Was Jesus checking if he was really was sick?

Scene from Children's Sermon For May.

He asked the children about faking sickness so they did not have to go to school and how that was a lie and they should not do that because as Jesus said something greater could happen. He then explained the importance of thanking God. The healed paralytic went to the temple to give thanks. We come to church to thank God for all that he has done for us.
