As we continue to look for ways to get to know the community, holidays and special occasions take on a new meaning. Holidays give us a reason to get together, plan an event, and invite our neighbors to take part!
This Sunday is Mother's day and Debbie McKelvey and I will be hosting a Mother/Daughter Tea in Taylor Community Center to celebrate the lives of the mothers and daughters in our community. It's been fun to watch it come together. Our theme is "What's in your Bag?" Our games will be fun and interactive. And the food ---- well, let's just say my mouth is water just thinking about it! (Think chocolate truffles, mini-cheesecakes, pinwheels, and an array of other scrumptious delights!)
However, as fun as it is to plan, decorate, and bake, the real reason for us getting together with these special ladies is to share the love of Jesus with them. For this particular tea, we are inviting ladies whom we know do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Will you pray for us as we continue to prepare the message we will be sharing? Will you pray for the ladies as they receive the invitation --- that their hearts will be open to come and have fun AND hear Truth? Will you pray that we will remain faithful in doing what God has called us to do and leave the results in God's hands?
Our tea will take place on Saturday, May 12th at 6:00 in the evening. Please ask the Lord to bring us to mind throughout the rest of the week (and especially on Saturday!), and when He does, thanks for lifting us to the throne!
