Family Dinner…

Growing up, one of my favorite activities at church were the Wednesday night dinners.  I would love to see Duncan Park host ONE Family Dinner Night during each of the summers months.  The only thing that prevents us from doing this is finding someone to host each dinner.  Hosting the dinner means that you will decide the menu, purchase the food items (on the church’s dime of course) and prepare the meal.  We’ll make sure you get plenty of help in the kitchen!  If you are interested in hosting one, two or all the Family Dinner nights, please let me know.  But…if we don’t find a host…you are on your own for dinner.

The dates for each Family Dinner night:

  • June 8: Cancelled
  • July 13:  College class will host
  • August 10:  Don Faubert will host

I estimate the cost for each meal to be no more than $3.00 per plate.  Dinner will be served from 5:15-6:15PM.   Sign up sheets will be provided in each Sunday school class so we will have an accurate count.


Help! I want to have devotions, but how???

What would you say to someone who asked you ” how do I have devotions?”  What advice would you give?  What books (if any) would you recommend?  I’d love to hear your comments.

This is a re-post since I only got ONE person’s feedback…thank you Shirley!  I can only assume the following:

  1. You didn’t see the original post
  2. You don’t know how to post comments, but you sure have a lot to say about this subject
  3. Shirley is the only one having devotions

If you can’t leave a comment, please e-mail me at and I’ll post your thoughts here on this post.

Father and son breakfast…

On Saturday, June 18 we will host a father and son breakfast in our pavilion. Doyle Brewer and his team will be putting together a fantastic breakfast, with plenty of food for everyone.  I have also asked Keith Wardlaw to provide a brief devotional from God’s word. 

Take this opportunity to invite your son…or your dad to breakfast.  Cost is free, but we will ask for donations.  We will begin serving breakfast at 8:00AM.  There will be sign-up sheets in Sunday school, so please help us out by signing up.

Hey kids…whatcha doing this summer?

I hope you will make plans to attend our Pandamania Vacation Bible School, where God is wild about you!  This year’s exciting VBS will be held on June 20-24 from 9:30-12:00.  In regards to age, it is open to any child old enough to begin our Cubbies program this fall or those who have  just completed fourth grade.

You can see Karen Mays if you have questions or if you are an adult interested in helping out.

Satisfy that sweet tooth…

On Sunday, May 29 our VBS team will be hosting a bake sale in order to raise funds for this year’s Pandamania VBS program.  First, we need people to sign up to bring baked items.  If you are able to do that, there is a sign-up sheet in our foyer, or you can leave a message in the comment section.  Secondly, we need anyone with a sweet tooth to come by the table and indulge. 

What a great way to benefit our children’s ministry AND satisfy those sugar cravings.  Any requests on what items you’d like to see???

Loving loudly…

This Sunday morning we will be looking at the subject of loving loudly through our actions.  What are some practical ways you can demonstrate love toward other believers, as well as those who have not yet decided to trust and follow Jesus Christ?

Feel free to post your ideas in the comment section.  Or, you can e-mail me your thoughts and I will include them here in this post. 

I do hope to hear from you!
