Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Click the thumbnail graphic above for a poster of events going on at Christiana Lutheran the weekend of May 18-20. We’re calling it “Festival in the Grove.” We will be having events going on under a big tent in the grove of trees beside the church. It begins with a movie “The End of the Spear” on Friday evening at 8pm. A movie for young children will be in the church at 7pm. On Saturday evening we have the band “One Road Home” performing in concert at 6pm. On Sunday morning our 10:30am worship service will be outside. Then, beginning at 6:30pm we will have a youth rally. Two bands, “Broken Yesterday” and “Relentless Flood,” will be performing. Also the Youth Drama troop called “CHAOS” from China Grove/Landis, NC, will also perform. We want to invite you to all the events, but in particular, to invite your youth, middle through high school, to attend the youth rally. We will be serving popcorn and soft drinks on Friday and Sunday and we will have homemade ice cream on Saturday evening. To all the events you will need to bring your own outdoor chair. Freewill offerings will be received for the bands. Christiana’s address, for GPS purposes, is 6190 US Hwy 52, Salisbury, NC 28146.
I realize too that this will be too far away for some of you, but can be an idea of something to do in your area to reach out to the community.
God bless you in your ministry at your church. If you have events going on please let me and Pr. Mark Ryman (our webmaster for the Carolinas Mission District) know so I can send out an email and he can put it on the website. Be sure to check out our website at http://carolinasnalc.org
Yours in Christ,
