The Good News According to Phil
"Summertime, and the living is easy." So goes the song. Summertime in Southwest Florida is also a time to think about the future of our church.
Our attendees are mostly older people, wonderful people who are open and receptive to spiritual growth. Our attendance reflects the predominant demographics of the Bonita Springs area, namely retired folks.
But there are also young families here. We've had a number of parents with young children attending recently. We don't see them a second time, because we have no program for the young ones.
We have begun a dialog on the Board level dealing with this question; should we invest in setting up a children's program?
Please share your feelings and insights. We will have a mid-year membership meeting, probably in July, and youth education (YE) will be on the agenda.
Blessings, Rev. Phil
