Family Beach Month Devos

Deermeadows Families, 

As everyone is coming, going, getting ready for school, dodging COVID, and going crazy, we are excited to give you an opportunity to relax and enjoy the beach with your church family each Wednesday during the month of August.  We hope you’ll join us 9am to noon.  On Wednesday nights, we’re encouraging you to spend time as a family taking a look at the book of Philippians. One chapter + 2 discussion questions each week.  RightNow Media studies available for a deeper look.  Happy August!
