How can a goat change a life? Each year, Pursuit holds a fundraiser called the Holy Goat Awards. Teens dress up and have dinner together to raise money to purchase goats for families in Jamaica. Then in the spring, a Pursuit team travels to Jamaica to give the goats to families in need.
We work with Pastor Clinton and Grace Community Fellowship who identify families who could benefit from receiving a goat. A few years ago, Lascells and Patsy were one of the first families who received a goat. They had been together for a while before he proposed to her at church on Valentine’s Day. Soon after they got married, they received what they considered a wonderful wedding gift: a goat from Team Church.
They cared for the goat and it soon multiplied. Grateful for what they had received, they wanted to give back, so they donated one of the kids to share with another family.
What a story of love and generosity! Not only do goats change lives by providing food, but they are also an opportunity to show God’s love to our neighbors in need.
A place to gather women and share a simple meal and dive deep with people over real stories and Christ centered conversations. A time for a whole lot of laughter – and maybe a few tears – but time spent that leaves us with glad hearts. Full hearts. Grateful hearts.
This is an opportunity to continue our mission of "Doing Life Together."
Ladies, you are invited to join the IF:Table on Saturday, March 25 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. During our time together, we will share a simple meal, discuss questions and practice Acts 2:42:
"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer."
Your host will prepare a meal. We ask you contribute $5 to help cover the costs.
We hope you will sit down and join the IF:Table. And invite your friends!
What does it mean to live all out for God?
Especially in the midst of busy lives, how do we find the time to

At IF:Gathering 2017, we’ll look at
one of the most influential generations that have ever lived — the
early church. The way God moved through them was simple and pure. We
believe they are the model we need right now. Our dream is that we would
experience the power of God as He does big things through simple acts
of faith. That we live unified, surrendered to God, not just in our
minds and in our theology, but also in our daily lives. Our hope is that
we would participate with the Spirit of God and see Him go forth in our
generation in a most powerful way.
Make time for this event and invite your friends to come along. Register today: https://teamchurch.infellowship.com/Forms/339965

HOW TO MAKE GOOD MEMORIES WITHOUT GRUMPY SIDE EFFECTS
We wanted to be the fun parents. And to create memories. I wanted us to be able to look fondly back on weekends like this and hear my kids say things like, “Thank you!” “That was awesome!” I didn’t want us to be grumpy and short with each other. But with so much “fun” planned, we started running on less and less, our fuses getting shorter and shorter until it didn’t matter what we were doing. We were too exhausted to enjoy it.
And that’s when it hit me. When it comes to making memories, my kids are cataloguing more than the experience itself. They are taking note of the emotions that come along with them.
