I have heard some great testimonies from our Family Fun Night events across the city! We had groups in Moraine, Bellbrook, and Kettering that gave away 160 bottles of water, 403 hot dogs, 9 gallons of hot chocolate, nearly 500 GOOD candy bars, and several hundred light sticks. One group also gave out doggie treats!
It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that relationship is biblical. In Acts 2 it states, “They met together daily from house to house.” It’s easy to apply that to our small groups model for the church, but the scripture goes on to say that “God added to their number daily those who were being saved.” I’m sure much of that occurred due to them inviting their neighbors over. In order for us to impact our neighborhoods we have to know our neighbors. “Beggar’s Night” was a great opportunity to do that. We turned trick-or-treating into a Family Fun Night!

Scott asked me the other day about my sunflower patch. I have grown about an acre or so of sunflowers the past couple of years. Once the sunflowers were going to seed, thousands of different types of birds descended upon them for several days. It was so fun to watch. My main purpose of growing my field of sunflowers was to provide food for the birds — Not to mention the field was beautiful when it was in full bloom!
This weekend in the final installment of our BRAVE series, I will be speaking about how to make others brave around you. “If you love someone … you will always believe in him, and always expect the best of him.” I Corinthians 13:7
I hope to see you this weekend. If we haven’t connected in a while, please come up and say hello to me!
