This week at our July 4th Potluck Dinner we will be having some great fun. We will be having a watermelon eating contest as well as a seed-spitting contest. The last seed-spitting contest I was in, I won first place with a 27 foot shot. I don’t know how I did it but I am seeking to win the championship again this year.
As a part of our day we will also be having a fundraiser unlike any other fundraiser we have ever had. This year we are having a STICKY fundraiser to raise money for our KID’s ZONE for BGMC and Mission of Hope orphanage in Haiti. There are three buckets and three people involved in this event. Our children’s pastor, youth pastor and me. The goal is to give as much money as possible in one of the buckets for each of the participants. At the end of the day the one with the most money is saturated with pancake syrup.
This fundraiser was “dreamed up” by one of our children’s workers who remembered a sermon I preached 4 years ago on fear. She capitalized on my greatest fear, “Being Sticky”. In the sermon I shared that my worst nightmare was to be locked in the room with a dozen 3 year olds eating pancakes. I hate stickiness. I will not even take Hannah out of her high chair when she is eating pancakes. So, based off of this sermon, one of our dear ladies thought we could raise money by making me sticky.
If you would like to give toward this fundraiser, please send a check to the church office or bring it Friday, with one of the 3 names (Brian – Children’s, James – Youth or Danny – Senior Pastor). Our address is PO Box 427, Nederland, Texas 77627. Please help me out by giving the money to the other guys.
