I Quit Going to Church

Dear Church, We call it Community Engagement and it’s one of my favorite things! It’s our attempt at “engaging our community” (thus the name) in ways that bring blessing – help, hope, encouragement – and spread the “aroma of Christ” (2 Cor. 2:15). It takes many forms – providing a free community-wide tailgate party at the Spring Hill Broncos football game, fixing, painting and cleaning at the Beadle House (a ministry to single moms), hosting block parties in neighborhoods, picking up the trash after the Fall Festival Parade, providing Thanksgiving meals and Christmas gifts to families in need, providing backpacks for school kids, serving meals to the teachers and staff of USD 230, etc., etc., etc. This week, however, our Community Engagement will consist of cooking hamburgers! Daffodil Day is Spring Hill’s business expo and we’re going to show up this Saturday (Lord willing) with our grill and provide lunch to about 500 people – free! – just to say, “We love you and GC is here to serve you.” If you’d like to help this Saturday, or find out more about participating in C.E. events in the future, Bob and Cara Henderson are the ones to whom you should speak. bhenderson@berkshirerisk.com. We call it “being the church.”  
Looking forward to smelling like burgers!
Joel
