UPDATE: October 1, 2008
Next Sunday, October 7, we will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary in our home at 218 NW 2nd Avenue and our 7th anniversary overall. We started the GCW in a little house, christened Jeremiah House, just two blocks from where we are now, in October 2000. We moved into our current home in late July 2004, and “officially” began our work here with an “open house” on October 3, 2004. (I put “officially” in quotation marks because we actually had our first guest at the house in September 2004 when the hurricanes passed thru town. Ask Johnny about that story some time. . .) So all of you–our friends, supporters, volunteers, everyone–is invited to join us on Sunday, October 7 from 1-4pm for an open house celebration marking our anniversaries! We’ll have food, music, tours of the house, speakers and more! We invite you to join us at anytime during the open house or for the entire afternoon. While we’ll provide some food and drink, we’re hoping that others will bring a dish or drink to share as well, i.e. potluck-style. Please join us if you can! We would love to have as many of you as can come!
ALSO, we are really excited about our new website! Check it out, and let us know what you think. Suggestions are welcome.
Thanks last week to the students and young adults who hosted what may have been one of the largest crowds for Wednesday Night Live ever, and to Eve MacMaster, pastor of Emmanuel Mennonite Church, for leading us in our Roundtable discussion on Thursday. And we’re STILL a little short of help on Tuesday mornings for Breakfast Brigade. Another 2-3 regulars would be really great!
Check out this week’s schedule.
