Along with the moments of worship and prayer and within the community who gather, there is always time to spend enjoying each other’s company. A time to laugh and play. As the weather beings to feel more and more like summer, we have the opportunity to be outside and take advantage of the more open space to be playful. Such is the case among the folks at St. George’s.
This past Saturday, June 10, we held our 4th Annual Noble Cookie Cup. Perhaps because we held this event later this year, the weather was absolutely perfect for a friendly challenge of the road hockey variety. Three teams, mixed with all ages, competed and in the finals, team “Snicker-doodle” defeated team “Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough”. The winning team received the delicious prize of a freshly baked batch of cookies prepared by Mrs. Joy Noble.
It is hoped that the good weather will hold for this coming Sunday, June 18, as we are gathering for a outdoor service and church picnic. Again this year, the service and picnic will be held on the lawn of and together with St. Alban’s Church in Glen Williams. Both church communities will meet together at 10:30 am for worship followed by a picnic and games for the kids.
These times of fellowship are great ways for us to get to know each other better and to celebrate the joy of being alive in Christ. It also reminds us that being a Church is more than just being in a church.
