What makes a great celebration?
How you answer that likely depends on how you like to celebrate and what you are celebrating, but perhaps there are some common ingredients we can find despite our different personalities. Here are some suggestions. Feel free to e-mail [email protected] with your own ideas for what ingredients are a part of a great celebration!
What's the point of this??? To encourage you to come to our Summer Celebration on September 2nd! It will be a celebration!
It will be a gathering of amazing people (especially if you are there) thanking God for his blessings during the summer - even if one of the greatest blessings was the ability to persevere - and looking forward to what is to come for us.
The place will be outside on the side lawn of our building. As an outdoor service - weather permitting - we embrace a relaxed vibe and let our hair down a bit. We'll have some games and after our main gathering, you can enjoy the inflatables!!
The music for this celebration will be music we'll all participate in. This celebration is about us singing, not just listening to people at the front. So we'll have song sheets available and we invite everyone to lend their voice to make the music special.
Finally . . . the food. We can't forget the food! This is something we participate in together, too. Volunteers will prepare burgers and sausages and corn. We invite you to bring a salad and/or dessert to share. These events are always amazing when it comes to the food you make! (Don't forget to bring reusable plates and cutlery to eat it with and save on the disposable dishes.)
Of course, the final thing a celebration needs is a reason for celebration. That one is simple. We are a family brought together by an unimaginably good and loving God. That's really what we are celebrating!
So plan to come and invite your friends to join us on Sunday. Everyone is welcome. Let's make this celebration a really special one!
