Life without Zoe

To me, dogs are some of the best of creation. They want nothing more than to be present with their people and they’re loyal first and last. There are dogs with fine pedigrees and good form; our dog Zoe had neither, but what she lacked in bloodline she more than made up in personality and zest for life.

The first time we saw her, she was a filthy-gray color and cowering among many other dogs at the Payson Animal Rescue. Her mother was a tiny Terrier and her father was a large who-knows-what, and she spent the early part of her life in a wretched home, trying to make her way among 27 other dogs and never enough food to go around.

Awake Prayer Gathering: June

Here’s a great opportunity to gather with other SWCers for prayer on Saturday, June 3rd, 5 PM-6 PM in the sanctuary.  This is a time for personal contemplation as well as corporate prayer together.  If you’ve never attended a prayer gathering, you can know that there’s no pressure for anyone to have to pray in front of the group.  We want to ask the Lord for His help in our community, our city, for other churches in our valley, as well as for our upcoming Kids’ Day Camp. Additionally, we can prepare our hearts for worship on Sunday in this peaceful environment.
