We have been having a lot of “events” as the Rock in the past couple of weeks. It’s the fall kickoff and that seems to be what we do.
We’ve had a freshmen picnic for all the new freshmen that we’ve been meeting. About 70+ people showed up, some of them were Rockers bringing people but many of them were first year students.
We had a broomball tournament and about 80 people showed up to smack a ball around on the ice for 3 hours. It was a lot of fun and people had great conversations off the ice around the nacho cheese stand. 🙂
We also integrated with the community part of the church for a picnic after the church service on Sunday that brought 120 people. Many new students came along for that as well and built relationships with the whole church.
Now tomorrow we’re having a karaoke night at Zeke’s (our building close to campus). Should be a painfully fun time as students try out their vocal “skilz”.
Lots of events.
But it’s not about the events. It’s about the people and who God is to these people. We love because he first loved us and through these events we’re loving people. Lots of people. That’s what makes it an exciting time of year!
Until next week then. 🙂
