About sixty people took part in our All-Church event this month. It was wonderful to relax by the pond, enjoy conversation around the fire (although not too close in the August warmth), take walks on the trails, and go on hayrack rides.
Wanda & Steve Sutter hosted with Dee Brines and Sue Hinshaw co-hosting. The Sutter family showed radical hospitality: from the “hand washing station”, to the hot dogs, to the mowing and preparations they made.
Most wonderful was to see the many children and youth roasting hot dogs and marshmallows…and running and playing with one another. That shows that this church is vital and transformative!
