church


For the past 3 years Kara has helped to organize a conference for people who are a part of or interested in simple church.  The conference is put on by the LK10 organization and has been attended by 50-60 people from all over the US and sometimes the world.  It is such a great time of sharing with others about simple forms of church. We practice “table churches” for the weekend where everyone is a part of a small church to share their hearts and listen to God together.  As we have attended these past 3 years we have enjoyed getting to know others who are like minded in this area. We had the conference this year at Bear Trap Conference center and had such a great time relaxing and enjoying the mountains.

Nick and I were able to again attend and help with the Labor Day Lk10 simple church conference.  We had a fabulous time reconnecting with friends and “family” as well as meeting and creating new memories. We all were able to experience church in small groups and learn from others as they facilitated sessions on sacraments, family, leadership and money.  We had a great time and already have next year on the calendar.

Almost every year we try to get members from our church to come camping with us over Memorial Day Weekend.  This year we were blessed by the Curry family with an overnight. We then had almost everyone else come join in on the fun Sunday morning.  We made biscuits on a stick and eggs.  Had fun watching kidos and playing games. We found a great spot in Deer Creek Campground right along the creek which was great for sleeping.

As a part of simple church we have always enjoyed Easter a little differently.  Nick and I typically watch The Passion either Friday or Saturday night then Easter Sunday we meet up with our church for a sunrise service.  The past two years we have hiked part of a close mt at our favorite park: Mt. Falcon open space park.  This year was very successful in getting a good sized group for the hike including one of our pregnant mommas of the group.  Nick carried her baby so she could just hike.  It was nice weather and everything.  Then we went back to the Curry home for brunch and more reflection. Perfect way to remember.
