NICE New Year's Luncheon

What a wonderful time we had yesterday at a NICE New Year's Luncheon along with a couple of our IFCA brothers. Usually we have planned either a Thanksgiving Dinner or Christmas Sing Dessert Night. So our thought was this year we'd skip those two events and do something centered around the New Year. We met at Edgewood Bible Church around 12:30pm and enjoyed a great time of fellowship, food and sharing. We brought some meats and cheeses and others brought salads and desserts - way more food than we could possibly eat. There were around 30 of us that gathered together. After eating our delicious meal, I (Bob) started us off with a "What's New?" Quiz. All the questions basically had the word "new" in it or some various form. The group didn't do too bad at answering the multiple choice of questions. Afterward, Dr. Roy Sprague shared 5 Things God Wants Us To Know from the book of Jude: Know Your Position, Know Your Profession, Know Your Opposition, Know Your Priorities and Know Your Power. It was a thought-provoking challenge to consider in looking forward or upward as Roy concluded, for 2010. Our Executive Director, Earl Brubaker closed our time in prayer and many of us continued to stay around for more fellowship and dessert. We are thankful for Pastor Frank Emrich and EBC hosting us for this first time event.
