Something very important to our team is to build unity with church leadership.
Each month we meet with the church leadership to discuss church business and make sure everyone is on the same page. Rarely however, due to varying schedules and life activities, are we able to simply have a time of fellowship . . .a time to build friendships…a time together when church business is not discussed…
We think having fun together is also important, and so, for the second year in a row we hosted the leadership for a Christmas get-together; a time for fun, food, and fellowship.
Last year, in 2015, we hosted the church leadership and had a cookie decorating competition. This year we had a larger crowd because we also invited the potential future leaders: those who are studying with us to see if God is calling them into leadership. This year we did not decorate cookies but we did a very Portuguese activity…tile painting. We also got to celebrate a birthday.
Not everyone was able to come, but many did, and we had a great time!
