I know I have not been doing a great job at keeping the blog updated, but with our busiest season approaching quickly, I wanted to stop in and let you know what is coming up around these parts.
Our annual Thanksgiving Meal at Brooklyn Springs is Wednesday, November 25th from 6-8pm. This is always a blessing as we gather around the table with our neighbors and celebrate the many things we are thankful for. Soul Purpose and Rick Ragan will be there as musicians and we are thankful they choose to use their wonderful talents to serve God in this way. We are delighted to see the churches come together to provide for this event and can’t wait to see what great things happen! If you want to help, let me know and I can get you more details!
Family Christmas pictures are always a favorite around here, too. We set up a studio at The Connection and each family gets a free framed 5×7. These always turn out so great and bring joy to many families.
And finally, this year we are doing The Connecting Tree again. This was such a huge help to our neighbors as the churches in Lancaster (and many folks from North Carolina) came together to provide Christmas gifts to those in Countryside. We are in the process of gathering all the names and information, but it looks like we will have around 200 folks to provide gifts for. Please let me know if this is a way you would like to help this year.
It’s exciting around here this time of year! Come serve with us and see God move in mighty ways!
