Sundaes on Wednesday--week 2
I still have a smile on my face as I reflect on the terrific start to “Sundaes on Wednesday” last Wednesday, June 20th. This was a significant night in the history of our new church. I was touched by how well organized the entire night went. I arrived at 5:30 p.m. and was very pleased to see a white bird—we called it a dove—that was outside the school entrance. We took that as a sign that the Holy Spirit was going to be with us during the evening. The set-up went remarkably well. The Facilities group had an excellent plan for set-up. We were basically ready to go by 6:00 p.m. And then the people started arriving—sixty-nine people were in the building—about 50 for worship and 19 in our youth/ids program. In addition to the large number of people from Chain of Lakes who attended, we had one person from the neighborhood, three families from Westminster, one family from Presbyterian Church of the Way, and many other friends of Chain of Lakes. Reba Schultz did a terrific job of sharing her musical gifts. The back-and-forth format of the sermon seemed to work well. After the sermon people talked at their tables for about ten minutes, and then we had a large group conversation. The line for the sundaes was long—Presbyterians do like to eat!
We will be worshipping again tomorrow night, Wednesday, June 27th at 6:30 p.m. Reba Schultz will again share her musical gifts. The heart-theme will be patience. Everyone in the north Metro is welcome to join us. I have started promising all visitors two scoops of ice cream for their sundaes. Yumm!!!
