ServeFest + Mtn Adventure Weekends (CHANGES!) = BIG events + small groups

Posted in better disciples, small groups at 2:56 PM by alexlozada

I ran out of time to blog about ServeFest beforehand, but after warming up w/ 1.5hrs of chair set-up w/ Team 3, I met Heather + Abby at Jerusalem Mill Village for a wet but worthwhile morning of outdoor projects w/ a few other from my Wed AM men’s small group, several other small groups, MCC members, and others. Plenty of pics and stories at the Facebook ServeFest group, and MCC’s Creative Media team is putting together a video for next weekend’s service. By Sunday afternoon (after Team 3’s chair tear-down), I was worn out!

With ServeFest done, the next big events for MCC small groups are this summer’s Mountain Adventure Weekends. Instead of setting aside only 1 summer week to “celebrate life … because God is good!” – we’re spreading the celebration over 4 summer weekends (CHANGED FROM post on Mon 16 Jun):

Sun-Mon 19-20 June: including Sunday Father’s Day Car + Bike Show;  Brooms Blooms Monday Night

Fri-Sat 15-16 July: Friday Ironbirds Game; Saturday pancake breakfast

Fri-Mon 5-8 Aug: plenty of participation sports throughout the weekend; AND  Sunday’s Family Game Night (I’m helping w/ this AND could use YOUR HELP too!!!); AND more Brooms Blooms on Monday night

Fri-Sat 26-27 Aug: Finale including scavenger hunt, fireworks + tailgating

I haven’t done very much work for my small slice of MAW (Mountain Adventure Weekends acronym) – Family Game Night on Saturday 6 August (after Saturday 505pm service), but if you’d like to help (even if you’ve not come before) email me, or add a comment to the blog. My family is thrilled to plan all comers in Dutch Blitz; Apples to Apples; or even old fashioned LIFE 🙂
