Christmas party on December 15

Bring gifts for hospital to a workout.

Convergence on December 22 at Bomb Squad at 7


Prayer Request/Moleskin

-Texas Rangers M returning to work after the baby and childcare needs.

-10 kids being impacted in 2 families divorces

-Quaker gave passionate message to be a HIM and focus on your 2.0s while at home, avoiding distracted parenting!  A family member is going through a divorce and feels like they have blown it with 2 teenage kids.

Part of Man’s responsibility is engaging with children and setting a habit of interacting in conversation.

YHC definitely has room for improvement, but one suggestion that has seemed to work well and has been well received by the shorties is to take off from work on their birthdays.  This works well especially if they are young! You can then go eat lunch with them at school.  Take/Pick them up too.

It is never too late to start building/rebuilding relationships!
