What in the world? Are we cancelling church on Sunday?
We’re getting for the people of Good Shepherd not to hear the sermon but to be the sermon.
Later today, volunteer crews will bring in loads of materials (and I mean loads) to be packaged as Meals Ready To Eat. Then this evening, more crews will bring in over 100 tables. Then tomorrow morning, still more crews will place the meal-making equipment at all the meal making stations.
All so that on Sunday you can come to one of three “shifts” — 8:30, 10, and 11:30 — and join us as we show that we really are fed up with hunger and ready to take part in the Million Meal March.
In 2011, over 2000 people filed in and worked hard, and we packed 192,000 meals that were then sent to you Uganda.
So on Sunday morning, we’re expecting more than 2000 folks to help us prepare 250,000 meals to be sent to Haiti.
While that room may be empty of seats right now, we know it will be full of high energy servants on Sunday . . . people whose hands will complete the sentences their words start.
See you at your shift on Sunday!
(And feel free to come to church Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. or Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. to help with the prep work.)
