IT’S ALL ABOUT KIDS

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!

    Cool! Sounds fun. Gallagher would be glad your building is getting use when “church is not in session.” 😉

    Trey,
    After Lisa’s comment about where is your post I’m surprised there was not a comment here an hour ago. It is such a blessing to the community you guys are open and being used by Him. Keep it up.

    It is so great to hear of churches using their buildings for more than just church. At Highland Oaks where we worship, our building gets used about 4 days out of every week to outside groups. So many churches think the building is such a sacred place it can’t be used for anything but church. The truth is, it’s a building and what better way to show the love of Christ than to open it and yourselves up to the community around you. Blessings!

    I think that is great! But, how come I didn’t get an invitation to the pizza? I may still havea few years of elementary school eligibility left! 😉
