Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I usually discuss things relating to worship and my church family, on Mondays.
Today, will be similar, but a little bit different.
You see, I met up with some of my church family. On Saturday!
Our youth group held a fundraiser dinner, about 6:00 p.m. that day. It was a pasta dinner. :)
Unlike many other fundraiser dinners I have attended in the past, no fee was charged. Instead, anyone attending gave a donation.
I must admit, this was truly a blessing to me.
Not just because of the food. Although I must say, it was truly delicious!
The way those in charge of the group set things up, was wonderful.
The youngest children of the group didn't have to help out in the kitchen. Instead, they assisted everyone by asking if there was anything we needed. And, made sure that our needs were fulfilled.
They also wanted to make sure, and asked repeatedly if we were happy with our meal, and the service that was provided by the mid-aged children. :)
Each person was not dressed in casual clothing. Except for those older children who were working in the kitchen.
Instead, each person was dressed up in a more formal attire. In fact, one young man was even dressed in a truly formal outfit. He was the host!
After dinner was finished, we did something else.
We played games! :) The games we played were through a Wii system.
We were divided into teams, and played Family Feud. Afterwards, we played Wheel of Fortune. Then lastly, we played Jeopardy.
To be honest, I truly adore spending time with my church family.
Not just to have fun, as we did on Saturday evening. But, also to be supportive.
Encouraging them, and helping them raise funds to support our church family youth group, is heartwarming. At least to me.
Especially, since God told us to do so, in Galatians 6:10, "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith."
I certainly like to do good to others. And, do whatever I can. Whenever I can.
By showing love to, and supporting my church family, I feel I am doing whatever I can to help them. Especially, since they are of the household of faith, where I worship.
In my heart, I believe that my church family's youth group was blessed. Me, too.
I wasn't just blessed by being obedient to God's Word.
I also believe that God blessed me, with much fun, food, and fellowship. All, in addition to laughing beyond belief!
Until next time...
