15 Jun Father’s Day Celebration & BBQ Picnic
Halfway through June … can you believe it? Only 193 days left until Christmas! Just amazing that we’re already so close!
I know you have lots of things going today, especially for parents with the end of the school year right now upon us. Myself, I am headed for a glorious appointment with an oral surgeon later this morning to have an ill-fated tooth removed! Fun, huh? At least I’ll be out for it, so this is my last formal communiqué before I go into the world of not remembering anything for a day or so!
I want to take just a minute to remind you personally about this Sunday’s Father’s Day Celebration. We’re making room to meet together in ONE Celebration at 9:30 am, instead of our normal 8:30 & 10:30 schedule. We’ll resume the normal schedule next Sunday, June 25.
For now, we’re excited about celebrating our heavenly Father with a kind of “Family Reunion”. It’s been a long time since we’ve been together all as one. Please, whatever you do, if you’re in town, don’t miss it. For those concerned about space and “fighting a crowd”, put those thoughts aside. It may be full, but we’ll have room. And it will be good to be together as one big family!
Right after the Celebration, you’ll walk into the courtyard to some kickin’ music, the awesome smell of BBQ Tri-tip and chicken, and some jumpers placed around the property for the kids for our Father’s Day BBQ Picnic. That’s the other reason to be sure to not miss this Sunday.
Wear your shorts (it’s supposed to be hot Sunday … aren’t you glad this is a church where it’s OK to wear shorts?) and bring your lawn chairs and picnic blankets. It will also make it a GREAT Sunday to invite your non-churched friends, family, co-workers, and whoever else to join you for church. Could there be an easier easy way to introduce someone to the life of your church?
Tickets for the BBQ are $8 for adults and $5 for kids ages 3-13. The BBQ is a fundraiser for “Building A Blessing”. I’ll give more of an update about where we stand with our expansion plans on Sunday as we are facing some changes that I believe God is ordaining in it all. Further fundraisers at the BBQ are a snow cone machine, a dunk tank, and just this week we added a pie-in-the-face fundraiser! Bring your money folks! If you want to cream my face, it’s gonna cost ya!! But it’ll be for a great cause!
Regarding tickets, if you don’t have them yet, call Shurie at the Church Office (805.583.3433) or click here to email her and just let her know how many adults and kids tickets you’ll need. You can pay for them Sunday, but it’s really helpful for us to get a more accurate count by 5:00 pm Friday.
I’m really excited about Sunday and all of us being together!
