Last week we tried something new.
We cooked pound of spaghetti, set the tables for our first ever Spaghetti Dinner Youth Fundraiser, and somehow managed to squeeze 200 people into half of Jubilee hall.
The youth told stories about last summer's mission trips, how they are looking forward to the Scotland Pilgrimage, and the reasons they love our church.It was a holy night and I could not have been more proud of our students.
In the last week I have had countless people tell me how wonderful dinner was. They have offered compliments on the high energy, the intergenerational connection, and for providing them with hope for the future. None of that could have happened without y'alls help! To the parents who showed up early to prep food- thank you.
To the families and youth who decorated tables, greeted by the door, and told their stories- thank you.
And to those of you who donated to the cause- thank you. Together we raised just over $3,000 for the Montreat bus. What a gift it is to be a part of this community of faith!
