Hope Outdoor Service - April 30th, 2023

Hope's annual Friendship Sunday has the 11am service outside, 8am inside

It is a nice day outside and plenty of shade so won't even break a sweat

Great crowd, eager for the service, plus food and fun afterward

Roam the shade hugging congregation during the children's sermon

Today's sermons message is based on John 14:6 - "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

View the congregation counter clockwise during the sermon

Gaga ball arena ready for action once the service is over, not just for scouts!

No shade for Gaga Ball, at least for now

Back to my folding chair for the rest of the service

Announcements end the service and now time for food and fun!

All line up for a hot dog, chips and a drink

Erin is off with her troop and both Dad and Alex stayed home, not feeling well

So sit and chat with many friends but don't play cornhole at all without Erin

Do participate in the cake walk and win yummies several times

Can't leave without enjoying several bags of snickerdoodle cookies!
