The Fog of “Tough Conversations”…this Sunday at ValleyPoint

We continue strategizing this Sunday about how to “see through the fog.” This week, we’ll deal with the fog of tough conversations. Do you have an approaching “tough conversation” that you know needs to take place? Unsure of how to initiate that conversation? Fearful of the response? Tough conversations are…tough! Here’s the sneak peak on the big idea – say the right thing at the right time. This is possible! I’m looking forward to learning with you. Take time to read through Proverbs 15 before Sunday as it provides great principles on how to “say the right thing at the right time.”

Thank you for bringing so many items last week for our Love Day. The Safe Harbor Shelter, as well as the Food Pantry at Siloam United Methodist, were both very thankful for our generous donations.
