Super Bowl Sunday

Today is Super Bowl Sunday and we’ll have a celebration at church this morning. After service we have a cake auction and then a chili dinner. This has been something we’ve done for a number of years and it’s a lot of fun.

The cake auction is the most fun. People in the congregation bring home made cakes to church and we pay ridicules prices for these cakes. This is the time when people donate to the youth group and children’s church. Some of these cakes will go for several hundred dollars.

The chili dinner is a great time to fellowship with others and eat great food. We have all the fixins including cheese, onions, Frito’s, and salad to number a few. There are so many different types of chili that people bring and it’s all great.

Chris decided he wanted to make the cake we’d take this year. So we let him have full run of the cake and he had fun. The cake turned out wonderfully and I’ve included a picture of it below.

Well I hope you all enjoy the game later today. Great job on the cake today Chris. I just love it!

Heavenfest 2009


Our 13 year old son became a part of the Youth Group for teens this year. He struggled with it at first and didn’t know if he wanted to go so he stayed downstairs with us all the time. A few months ago my cousins Jessi and Kellie were asked to be the youth leaders. This changed everything for Chris. He decided he would give it a try. He loves going and looks forward to it each and every Wednesday night.

This weekend (August 8th) the Youth Group took a trip to Brighton CO for Heavenfest. This event is for Christians from all over. There were 80+ artists on 8 stages, in 8 areas. Chris had a blast, he enjoyed the trip, he learned that God is awesome, and he even won a t-shirt and had a pro skater sign it.
They are on their way back now so I don’t have pictures yet, but I will share them soon. I will also have him tell me more about what he learned, what he saw, and what he liked about it.
Stay tuned… more to come soon!
