Friday night we had a pre-Valentine's Day LUAU. Sure it was raining outside and chilly, but that didn't stop us from making the best of our warm weather theme.
We have new welcome packets for anyone who comes for the first time.
Anthony and Stacie's little daughters had their tiny grass skirts on and helped to put tiny umbrellas in the snacks and drinks.
Arlen and T reppin' their Hawaiian gear.
Christine and Noella practiced worship beforehand, which included a bit of hula dancing.
Louie and Teresa, a newley engaged couple, came and enjoyed some dinner before the worship started.
There were lots of photos taken in the photo booth (Ernie and Joy) and of the cute outfits (Jess W. and Sydney).
We had some yummy food that night, including ALOHA PIZZA!
We also sold a few BRIDGE shirts for $12 (dark ones are for adults and white ones are kids sizes).
By 7:45, the room filled up!
Lisa and Jimmy were all smiles and ready to get their worship on.
It was time to say hello to someone nearby.
T continued PART 2 of his FOLLOW ME series and spoke about the cost of TRUE love.
We ended the message a bit early so we could hang out, eat and enjoy catching up with one another.
And that's a wrap. It was an awesome night. We were so thrilled with who God brought out to join us and are excited for next Friday. We were also encouraged in our relationship with Jesus to "count the cost" of following Him!
