Here are some more RAGBRAI pics from our Watermelon booth & Spaghetti Supper last Monday. Again, thanks to our WHOLE church family for making this a huge success. It really was like our Soup and Pie Supper on steroids!
Only our kitchen crew would have fun serenading our RAGBRAI guests while they were served their spaghetti supper. Here’s a short bit of “On top of Spaghetti, All covered with Cheese!” Hope UMC really is the best!!
We did it! We survived RAGBRAI and provided a great outreach to the thousands of people who came through our town! We started with the Breakthrough group serving watermelon, followed by our church serving a spaghetti supper, and then finishing with a pancake breakfast this morning sponsored again by the Breakthrough group.
We served 1, 250 RAGBRAI riders a spaghetti supper and lived to tell about it! A HUGE thanks to everyone who helped with this enormous project! A special thanks to the dining room and kitchen servers who worked non-stop the entire evening! There will be more pictures of the day coming, so keep checking back. Thanks for being the hands and feet of Christ to our overnight guests!
A simple way to be sure to include God in our day is by using this simple method. Say a short phrase as you breathe in, and complete it as you breathe out. Some examples:
Breathe in (Lord Jesus Christ); Breathe out (have mercy on me).......
Breathe in (The Lord is my shepherd); Breathe out (I shall not want).......
Breathe in (Oh holy spirit); Breathe out (please guide me today).......
It's an easy way to include God in everything that we do!
