We are thrilled that 105 people came out to check us out last Sunday! The day, however, did not go as we expected. About a half an hour into our worship service, a fire was discovered two houses up the road from the Town Hall, where we meet for worship. The house was not lived in, and no one was hurt. Thankfully, we had a bunch of people who are on fire departments and the rescue squad who were able to respond quickly.
In an attempt to help the fire departments we decided to end the service early so that we could get out of the way. We had lots of muffins left from before the service, so we set up a table with them for the responders. We are so thankful for their service to the community, so it was the least we could do for them.
Our pastor, Chris, challenged the congregation that if 125 people came, he'd get a mohawk, and if 150 people came, he'd dye it blue. We didn't quite meet the challenge, BUT it's been recommended that we include all the fire fighters in that number. We would make the 150 person challenge for sure!
Chris has agreed to get his hair done after worship on May 25th. If you came and checked us out last Sunday, we would like to invite you to come check us out one more time. We promise that what happened last Sunday does not happen, pretty much ever. We don't want people to say church is boring, because we know it's not. That was not how we wanted to show that church is not boring, though! We appreciate that you all gave us a try, and we would love you to come back for another week!
First Baptist Church of South Londonderry invites the community to check us out on Sunday, May 18th for our worship service. Everyone is always welcome to check us out, but we know that sometimes the first time can be intimidating. Once a year we try to make it easier by having a special “Check Us Out” Sunday. We'll explain each part of the worship service, and a lot of others will be checking us out, so you will not be singled out. We're all about growing followers of Jesus by planting seeds of faith and nurturing them to grow fruit.
Come join us for coffee and muffins at 9:30am, and for worship at 10:00am. The congregation is currently meeting at the Londonderry Town Hall (139 Middletown Road) for worship services. For more information, call 802-856-7266, or visit us at www.firstbaptistlondonderryvt.org.
