Classroom learning is absolutely necessary. However, our desire is to remove the classroom walls and include learning outside that space. With this in mind, we have implemented Pulse days: each Wednesday we examine different aspects of our “spiritual” pulse.
HEAD days—expand our minds by looking at specific topics that equip us for Christian ministry. In a recent Head day, we learned about a Christian's place in the political sphere.
HEART days—focus on our hearts as we are spiritually formed to become more Christ-like. Heart days include our spiritual emphasis times such as Ignite, Infuse, and Incite.
HANDS days—allow us to put our faith into practice. Hands days give us opportunity to engage in Serve Sussex and Serve New Brunswick, that take us to places like shelters, food pantries, prisons, nursing homes, police and fire stations, etc.
HABITS days—lead us to consider how we can practice our faith in our own lives. Habits days see us attending an annual retreat and learning how to be wise financial stewards.

Our group served at the Golden Years Fellowship at Penobsquis Baptist Church. We acted out a small skit and then followed that with a devotional and some fun games. The guest speaker approached me afterward and asked if we would do our skit at the Memory Cafe, a monthly meeting for those with Alzheimer’s. We are now in the process of making that happen.
