New Beginnings “Press Forward With a Steadfastness in Christ”

Kansas City First Ward New Beginnings 2016

“Press Forward With a Steadfastness in Christ”

We used this years Mutual theme for our New Beginnings “Press Forward With a Steadfastness in Christ”.  When one try to think of a good example of pressing forward with a steadfastness in Christ the handcart pioneers comes to mind and the artwork of Sandra Rast’s piece called “Press Forward” is perfect, (a special thank you to Sandra Rast for letting us use her image of the handcart pioneers).

Each Young Women told of one of the handcart pioneers from the Willie/Martin Handcart Company and then shared how they found inspiration to Press Forward with Steadfastness in Christ.

Our invitation was done on a slab of wood sent in a small burlap sack using vintage stamps depicting pioneers:
