I love this kid!

I found this garage band (a great one) called DaveDays. He does fun covers and humorous parody songs. He always keeps it clean and I wanted to share this cover of the FreeCreditReport.com commercial he did. You'll be singing his version around the house all day. Enjoy!

Whew! Great Work! Thanks!

The final count for one and a half hour's work is 47 people showing up for work and 300 food boxes for needy folks in our community and neighboring towns.
   The folks were impressed by your hard work and I was proud to be there when they kept looking at me with that "wow" look on their faces.   
   What I hope you took away from this is how important the poor were to Jesus when He walked he earth and how He reminded us that we would "have them with us always". Your labor helped the Hoosier Hills Food Bank show compassion. We should be all about this.
   I am also happy to hear from so many of you that you enjoyed the work and want to do it again. That could be arranged! We shold ask how we can be a blessing to people in our own church also.

Love you guys

Wednesday is Food Bank Day

Hey Gang:
I have not received a cancellation from the Hoosier Hills Food Bank yet so I think we're still on for Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. You can assume we're on unless I hear an update from the food bank. I will call them Monday. Remember to dress appropriately for handling food. No open-toed shoes. T-shirts and jeans should suffice. Be at the site and ready to go at 6:30 p.m. We will finish by 8:00 p.m. to give us time to get people back to the church for AWANA completion. Some of you have younger family members involved in AWANA. Let's glorify God in this effort to help those in need.

The Great Potato Joke Spud-off!

I have accidentally created a genre of humor called The Potato Joke. Below are some examples:

What do you call a potato with glasses?
A spectater

What do you call a potato that always causes trouble?
An agitater

What do you call a potato that throws up a lot?
A regurgitater

What do you call a helpful potato?

A facilitater

I have a million more! I want you to send your best Potato Joke. Remember, the set up is half the joke. Make sure your punchline ends in -tater or -tator. I will put together a slide show of the best with the name below.

I can't wait!

Red Cross called...

Today the Red Cross called about doing a blood drive at the church. As you'll recall they wanted to do one last year and dropped the ball on scheduling at the last minute. They called back today and are looking at dates in June. If we get approval for use of the facility and a solid group who want to work, we can start letting the neighborhoods know that we will be sponsoring the blood drive at the church so lots of people can be a part of shoring up the blood supply. The spring and summer months are times when the blood supply is hardest hit. I very much would like to help these folks help others. It's also an opportunity to be a light to the community and get them inside our doors. Think about it. Details will come as time progresses.
