The local elementary school is right across the street from our church building. I get to know many of the elementary school kids through a weekly “Bible story time” that I do in the library before school each week. A while back the school said they needed a place to throw a party that was “off campus” so we invited them to come over and party in our church’s picnic area. About 100 kids and their parents showed up for pizza and cokes at lunch time today. It was a lot of fun. Plus, I got to meet a lot of parents from the community that I did not know. I love kids, I love meeting their parents and I love using our building for things like this.
And who says preachers never get to have any fun!
