In The Atlantic Community
Welcome to another week!
Fallowfield United Methodist Church hosted its annual fellowship dinner on Sunday, November 22. A huge crowd -- probably 100 people – came out. This is a thank-you to everyone who volunteered at our Crawford County Fair pie project. I saw people I haven’t seen since August. It’s amazing how much better we all look without our hairnets and aprons.
The tables practically sagged with delicious food, including rhubarb, blueberry crumb, custard, apple, and pumpkin pies. We also had raspberry cheesecake, pumpkin cheese cake with real whipped cream, sweet potato casserole with perfectly golden marshmallows, real scalloped potatoes with purling butter, Sperry’s deviled eggs, chili and cornbread, and more. I’m gaining weight just thinking about all that fabulous food.
After the meal, Seventh Day played Country Gospel favorites including “I’ll Fly Away,” “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder,” and “Over in the Gloryland.” They also sang a couple contemporary praise songs in a bluegrass style, including “And All the People Said Amen,” by Matt Maher. The audience clapped and tapped their toes in rhythm.
Seventh Day includes two guitars, a banjo, and four singers. One guitarist also plays mandolin. These folks are good pickers, that’s for sure. Everyone had a good time.
Just an update on Operation Christmas Child: we collected 108 shoe boxes at Fallowfield United Methodist. That’s seven more than last year. I’m so glad. This is such a worthy, life-changing project for children around the world. Could you please pray that terrorists don’t prevent these boxes from reaching needy children? Thanks.
Have a wonderful week. Blessings!
