the sound of the alarm at 6:30 this morning was an unwelcomed annoyance. there are VERY (major emphasis on VERY) few things that can get me out of bed at 6:30 on a saturday morning. however... cross point church's serving saturday's are definitely one of the reasons i am willing to drag myself out of bed. this fabulous saturday we rounded up nearly 700 volunteers & had the opportunity to spread out through various ministry sites including: mending hearts, lighthouse ministries, & preston taylor ministries. the culmination of it all was a family friendly block party! free for everyone, it was a great way to thank our volunteers, and to spread some love in preston taylor neighborhood. here are a few images from this wonderful, hot day of ministry, love, "& then some!"
the absolutely heavenly "hit & miss" ice cream. bradley freeman owns the portable company, and makes all his ice cream in old school, wooden bucket makers, turned by a john deere!
bill and his crew from "nashville high lift" are amazing grillers, and provided incredible food for nearly a thousand people. they worked tirelessly from early this morning until we cleaned up around 3. we are so thankful for their heart for ministry!
i LOVE to see our youth jumping into ministry with their whole hearts! thanks lindsey!
