“Let’s get a whole pig and have it roasted; that’s easy.”
“Naaaaaw, we should barbecue!”
“Well, we could just make it a potluck and have everyone bring their own
In the end, for the 1st of May (our Labor Day) so many people signed up to come and signed up their unsaved friends and family, that we ended up doing all three. We roasted a whole pig, barbecued additional meat, and had everyone bring side dishes or salads. It was a wonderful day of fellowship. The guys ended up going out to play paintball while us women drank coffee and fellowshipped together. Times like this are very important for a church. It gives us an opportunity to enjoy one another’s company outside of the ministry and be a witness to our unsaved friends and family. We don’t even have to formally tell them about Jesus. Loving one another and serving each other is a witness in and of itself.
