Good Stuff in the Works

April 6, 2009

Today is Monday….enjoying the day with my bride…although it’s raining cats and dogs here in Raleigh. We’re planning on a busy week as we approach the Easter weekend. Last night Janet and I met with the core group of our Young Couples from the church. Had a delicious Italian dinner (which I rarely pass up), followed by some strategic planning for our upcoming cookout for the RCC Young Couples on April 19th.

I’ve been very excited about our church reaching out to the neighboring community. Some of the managers from the Beechwood Apartment complex ( just a mile or so down the street) have been coming to our Sunday services and we are building some good friendships with the Harris Creek Elementary staff ( about 3 miles down the street on Forestville Rd). Both groups will be tapping into our “Angel Food” ministry (a discounted food distribution service that many churches are using in recent days). We will also be sending nearly 50 elementary students home each weekend with “buddy back packs” filled with healthy drinks and snacks for under-resourced families who are struggling to put bread on the table.

Please pray with us that our Beechwood Block Party will be a smashing success as we continue to reach out in love to our neighbors and friends the first Saturday in June. Enjoy this amazing Holy Week with your family and spiritual family!
