The Hopeful Times
Black & White Edition VIII
(except for Hopeful )
Tomorrow! Saturday @ 10:00 a.m.!
The Community Church Proudly Presents
The Lake Bluff Food Parade!!!
Join us at the Lake Bluff Middle School Parking lot Saturday at 10:00 a.m. Dance music blaring out the back of my truck! We'll line up as many cars as we can in a parade. The church step van - with banners on each side - will announce our Food Drive and be positioned in the middle of the parade. We'll have an old Jeep playing more music at the end. And, we'll drive slowly using the music to gather attention as we go, kinda like the Good Humor truck.
When people realize what's going on, and come out of their house with a donation to place in the truck, we stop the parade. And you can cheer, scream, honk...or best of all, dance. Or, maybe you join us, smile, and laugh. For about 15 seconds. And then it is on to the next house. We'll go up and down the streets of east Lake Bluff. You can join us for however long you please! For those who'd like, we'll head over to west Lake Bluff after we tackle the main, east & west streets of east Lake Bluff.
Here's how it's a multi-level win. (1) We get food for hungry people in northern Lake County. (2) We raise awareness. (3) We have fun. Hello! Get away from your computer screen! And, we will have prizes for *** the  youngest participant  *** the  best dance moves  *** and, the  oldest participant  ( you need to be older than Howard Sipe !)
Can you imagine how fun it will be to have a zillion cars?
Tell everyone you know! 10 am this Saturday!

Help Us Create a Mother's Day Video!!!
* * * * *
Kraig Moreland has kindly offered to create a Mother's Day video for our service next week. To do it, we need your help!
First, create a video of 15 seconds of less sharing: what your mother taught you - or - what's the best advice she gave you. Second, if you have a photo of your mom, send it along with the video (phone videos are perfect) to Kraig at He'll take the first 25 entries so act swiftly to honor your Mom a week from Sunday! Questions? Email Coach Kraig
Community Church Dog of the Week Award
Megan White's pup Lucille seems to have taken to
our "Worship on the Screen" services - very well
aware that "Dog" is "God" spelled backwards...
What do the Market House, the Com munity Church, and Beacon Place all have in common? In addition to getting a waiver on the black and white restriction for this issue...they're involved in a WONDERFUL project together. More in our next issu e!
