The Road to Sixty – Day 33
I can’t remember a time in my life that Wednesday’s haven’t been important!
Practicing baseball growing up, I remember Mom pulling up getting out of the car. The coach would look and say, “Jr, your Mom is here, have a good time at church!”
It was no question to him, he knew where we were going. I would go many times with that red Alabama clay dirt on my shirt and pants. I would dust off before I walked in, but I was at Bible class.
The same was for basketball or any other activity I was involved in…I was to be at church on Wednesday night!
When I started in youth ministry, I wanted to share that same love for Wednesday’s!
Pump days were the first after school programs I started, we would pick up from the various school and head to the local nursing home. There we would stay and have a Bible Class for 30 minutes then go to the building to hangout!
It has morphed into a bit more these days…
I love my Wednesday’s
I get to:
Have a chapel at our Pre-school (age 2-4)
Teach a Bible class at Poplar Estates Assisted Living
Teach a Bible class at The Bridge Assisted Living
Begin W.A.S.H. days (Wednesday After School Hangout) service to community and Spring Meadows.
Begin Lunch Ladies for grades 9-12
Teach teen classes and fellowship with my brother and sisters
Meet with the elders each week, seriously what a joy to meet with them as they shepherd the flock!
I love this day! I wouldn’t miss it for anything!
