Wow, what a great day. Thank you, God. Our first community festival since occupying The Loft was a roaring success, beginning with a fabulous motorcycle ride that introduced us to many, many new friends.
Then followed a packed celebration at 11 a.m. (instead of our usual dual celebrations), after which we all adjourned to eat, play, spend time together, meet neighbors and new friends, and just generally have a blast.
There was free food and drinks, a cornhole tournament, pony rides, a euchre tournament, ring toss, bouncy house, kids' fishing pond, marshmallow driving range, live music, kids' crafts, and more!
At 3:00 we headed into the auditorium for a wonderful worship wrap-up to the day, and that was wonderful, too. God gave us very comfortable temperatures, no rain, and even sunshine late in the festival! I can't even express how blessed I am to be a part of such a wonderful church family! Thank you, God.
