264 Day was a great celebration. It was uplifting and exciting for everyone to come that Sunday. We are having another special day on March 16th. We are having “Friends and Family” day. We are having a potluck afterwards too. It is the breakfast theme which is the most popular one we have each year. And I have to admit, it is my favorite one too because Glen Peter’s makes a mean omelet. The food is always hot and tasty. The cooks prepare the food right in front of you. It is cook to order at church.
Over the years, these “Friends and Family” days are successful if we invite people. And I have learned that people do not mind being invited to one of these special days. People typically say yes if you invite them. People say yes because it is not a long term commitment. Sometimes people feel that they have to come each week if you invite them to church, but one of these special days, they can say yes, and know it is a one week commitment. People enjoy coming because the day is exciting. If you invite them, they will come.
Steve is singing, and he will do a great job. We promise to have everyone out on time. I am preaching, not a boring friends and family day sermon, but one on “An Aaron Moment.” It is a sermon on avoiding you golden calf moment in life. You know that moment; it is the one mistake you make in High School that you cannot ever live down. Those moments can still happen. And the sermon will talk about how to avoid them, and what to do if it happens to you. Your friends will enjoy it; it is going to be funny, and something that we can all relate to in life. I promise that you friends will enjoy the sermon.
On 264 day, we had 265, and everyone came up to me to inform me that they almost did not come. It was them that made the difference. You can make the difference on this special day. I got my parents from Canada coming. I am inviting my neighbor, and my lawyer friend from the gym. I got my listed started. Who is on your list? Start inviting them now, if you invite five people, two will come. Let us see if we can get 300 people. That would be awesome! I would love for us to have the largest attendance ever at Castle Rock.
