I just realized that Kim had posted the article. So check that and post comments in her blog. But…
Huge thanks go out to everyone who made it happen. Thanks to our God and Father who gave us His Son, Jesus. Without His generosity we wouldn’t give and if we did it wouldn’t be of any significance.
Thanks for Marcum Terrace residents who let us party with them. Thanks to Tim and Jennie Holmes for masterminding the bad boy. Thanks for Crew for ponying up over 4 grand and 50 or so vols to implement the party. Thanks go Jeff Black for being Santa. Set up and break down teams. Food teams. Game leaders. Craft leaders. Boekell photography for doing the pics. On and On.
We have the opportunity to follow up with every resident who had their pic taken with Santa. We’ll be delivering the pic/ornaments in the next week or so. This will be a great time to have some deeper conversations and build friendships.
Finally, we’ll have almost 2 grand or so left over from our Big Give fund to give away. If you know of folks who need it, let us know their situation and why they should get it. We’ll be deciding this next week who gets it. More info on this. Thanks again Crew. I couldn’t be more proud of you!
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
