It has been so long since I’ve done a blog post, I’m not certain I remember how to do it!
Fortunately our website has returned to the land of the living. Thanks, Greg, for going the extra mile to get us back in service.
What better way to return to the blogosphere than by reminding everyone that in just a little over a week we will break ground for our first ever facility?
Here’s what you need to know:
As the sign indicates, the date is set for February 6th at 3:00 p.m (not 4 as originally communicated) on our property at 872 Maitland Avenue. We will be having an informal picnic on the property immediately after the worship service. Pack a lunch or go pick up something from your favorite take-out place and bring it to the property. Also bring lawn chairs (extra for guests if you have them) and/or blankets for seating. Parking will be on the vacant adjacent property just south of our parcel. Portable “facilities” will be on site for our convenience. Please, each household also bring a finger food to share among ourselves and our guests after the ground breaking (A-M – savory; N-Z – sweet). Drinks will be provided. Members, and those working toward membership, will also want to bring a couple of ounces of dirt from their own properties to place in the hole that will be turned by our groundbreaking shovels to symbolize the participation of all our people in the building of God’s church. Every family that attends will receive a special gift memento.
The property won’t look like this for much longer. February 6 is right around a corner. It will be a banner day in the history of our church!
Please pray that the invitations that have gone out to the surrounding homeowners will result in some attending the groundbreaking ceremony and that the gospel of Jesus will touch their hearts.
And it wouldn’t hurt to pray for decent weather as well, now that I think about it.
Hang on to your hats. It’s gonna be a great year for Orlando Grace Church!
