Sunday, September 14th was a record setting day in many ways.  First and foremost we all gathered together and learned new things about forgiveness and relationships from the Master's words in Matthew's gospel.  Everyone was invited to wear pajamas or very casual clothes and enjoy homemade pancakes and sausage!  Earl brought his stand up griddle and cooked 180 pancakes and a huge box of sausage.  We ate both before church and again after church.  Not many leftovers!!! Others brought all the things to enhance the pancakes such as butter, chocolate chips, regular pancake syrup and blueberry syrup.  There were fresh blueberries and a fresh fruit salad.  A box of assorted donuts also appeared.  The junior altar guild team did the honors of cleaning and storing all of the sacred vessels.  Children's Sunday School class was packed with 13 students.  Somer Brown is our fearless leader!  We have a new curriculum called WHIRL.  The Adult Sunday School program, which started at 9:30 had six members beginning the study of World Religions.  We set an attendance record of 51!  To top it off on Sunday afternoon we began a youth program for those students who are about Middle School age.  There were 6 who came and a few younger siblings.  The whole year is planned with many fun activities.  They will meet each Sunday afternoon from 4:00 - 5:00 at the church.  They paired up and one person was the brain and the other person was the hand.  The challenge was to make a peanut butter sandwich.  It showed how important every member is and what teamwork is all about!  As you can see we had so much fun worshipping as a community!  Please come to join us any time.  We would love to have you.  To see pictures of the day unfolding go to the Photos and click on Pancakes and Pajamas.
