I'm sure most congregations who possess nice lawn signs are not as enamoured as we; but we have a brand new digital one! Wahoo! And it is really spectacular! We really wanted it for the simple reason of being able to talk to our community.....and we are. So much is going on at our place and we are increasingly neighborhood oriented.
Well....a week ago we had a family visit who decided to drop in because of the sign.
Tomorrow---as the sign has advertised for three weeks---we are conducting a two hour Back-to-School Blast. We will have kids' rides, face painting, free food, free hair cuts, and a free clothing give-away. This huge event has been displayed proudly on our new sign!
So....two times this week strangers from the community stopped by our office with bags of clothing....to contribute to the give-away. Not only will our neighborhood be blessed by the many free things tomorrow; but our community is even joining us by adding items to the collection.
Now I think that is a good sign!
