Community Sunday 2015 Recap

If you were unable to join us on Palm Sunday this year, you missed something great. We combined Palm Sunday with our bi-yearly Community Sunday, and the house was full of representatives from our community partners and other local leaders. Those of us who plan these things are a bit like a quiet teenager going to the high school dance, insecure and unsure if anyone will ask us out on the floor! Will anyone show up? We’ve spent money, and worked hard! What if it's a wash? These, and many other questions, ran through our brains. However, for all involved, we floated out of the room about an inch above the ground, and the encouragement sustains us even until now! Money and effort well spent. We’re licking our fingers and making that ‘chalk it up’ sign to a wonderful move forward! Everyone who contributed, from set-up to decorations to worship, were spot on awesome - kudos to you all!
 
We heard testimonies from Six:Eighters and other community leaders as to our dreams and fond memories. We ate good food. We talked. We met new friends. Old friends. Worshiped. And topped it off with a short and appropriate message for Palm Sunday which left us all to wrestle with the question leading us into the following Easter Sunday - “Who is Jesus?”. And the greatest part? Everyone hung out afterwards to talk for a long time - that says a lot! Enjoy the pics and video, and pray for a powerful year of continuing to be the Hands and Feet of Jesus, while expanding the boldness of our Voice of Jesus, in the Ardmore/Havertown community!  Prayer is powerful. Six:Eight wants to be a ‘House of Prayer for All Nations’ (Isaiah 56:7b) - so let’s pray for our church and community to have a banner year together for the glory of Christ!
 
For a glimpse of all that made Community Sunday such a special day for us, you can watch the community partner video that was played that morning and hear from some local leaders and neighbors, listen to the sermon on our Sermons page and check out the photo album on our Facebook page.
