We have our blow event of the year coming this Sunday evening. We are going to have a blast together. We having a chili cook-off to kick the night off. If you think you can bring it, don't be scared. Even if you don't think you can win, bring a pot of chili so we can ensure everyone gets to eat :-). We are also going to have our volunteer celebration and Journey awards. This is going to be crazy! I'm dying to tell you what we are going to do for all the volunteers, but you will have to trust me when I say BIG. Our Journey awards is our annual recognition of some of the great stories of the year and people who were instrumental in our success. This will be the third year we have done these and they are special every time.
Following the awards, we are going to be praying over the shoe boxes everyone brings for Samaritan's Purse. If you have not got a shoe box and filled it with goodies yet, you need to...for real. It is an inexpensive way to help people who will have nothing this Christmas and the organization is amazing. After we have prayed for the children who will receive the shoe boxes we are going to go into a time of worship together. The band has an extended time of praise and worship planned to lead us in worship of our Lord.
Do not miss this event. If you miss, you are seriously in jeopardy of forfeiting your rights to some cool stuff. I can't say anything else about it or I will be tempted to let the cat out of the bag. We are going to laugh together and cry together. This is a great event for meeting people and drawing closer to those you already know. 5:30-7:30pm Sunday night at West Elementary. Be there or be square.
