Noon Meeting News – December 6, 2016 – Community Champion Awards Presented

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father multitasking is our way of coping with time. As youngins we were told that time was precious or as it was put “time is money.”  Help us to not waste the time saved or the money made in search for just the material things of life. As Optimists, we know the time and money we have saved by multitasking is wisely spent on the kids. We ask for your blessings on our dedication to the kids and keep us multitasking for there are a lot more kids to reach out there. Amen!
