January 23

This Saturday is our annual Chicken Brunswick Stew and many of you have signed up to help with production and sales. Why do we do events like this? The most obvious answer is “to make money” – money that can help fund extra events outside the budget. But there are other reasons. One of the most obvious is the sense of community that occurs as we work together. Around the chicken pickin’ table, folks check on each other and talk about topics that we often miss on Sunday mornings. An event like this is just one way that we build community.

I would encourage you to look around this Saturday. Is there someone working that you don’t know very well? Take this time to learn more about them – hear their story and share your story. It is out of community that we can better serve the world around us, sharing the gospel with those we meet. You know, we can meet Jesus around the fire.
