Dear Christ Church Family,
It is without a doubt that COVID-19 has damaged our culture in many ways. Besides putting our health and wellbeing at risk, it has caused isolation that has its own risks. I miss my Church Family and I know many of you feel the same way. We are challenged to find a way around the isolation to still minister to one another.
A ministry that is dear to my heart is the Wedding and Baby shower ministry. It is a special way to celebrate a new life together and a new life given to us. We have at least 5 new babies on the way. I do not know of any weddings being planned. If you know of a wedding, please let me know.
Tiffany and Arlie Bradbury and Shaumbry and Joseph Jordan are expecting boys. We need to shower these families, not only with gifts, but also love and encouragement. I am determined they receive their shower. As these are their second babies, we will be doing a gift card shower for each of them.
Tiffany/Arlie are registered at Target, Amazon, and Buy Buy Baby, so please get their cards from these sources. Please mail them ASAP. The baby is due within 2 weeks. Their mailing address is 127 Chambord, Maumelle, AR 72113. The baby’s name is August.
Shaumbry/Joseph are not registered but would very much appreciate gift cards from either Wal-Mart of Target. Their baby boy is named Titus and he is due on July 24th. Please mail the gift cards to 82 Meadow Ridge Loop, Maumelle, AR 72113.
Please include in the cards words of encouragement for these precious families. Give them at least one idea for making a special memory with their children. A favorite memory at the Finley house was to make a birthday cake for baby Jesus. We decorated with a tiny nativity and talked about the real meaning of Christmas. It was something they looked forward to doing each Christmas and my daughter is continuing the tradition with her daughters.
Blessings to all of you and know you are missed. Hope to see all of you soon.
