The Thunderstorms Missed Us – Open House 2014

Open House 2014 007

Heather and Team

There were thunderstorms early in the morning before and later in the night after our Open House this year, but God gave us a lovely day again for the 6th year in a row!  From 11am until 10pm we were blessed with the beautiful sounds of music that honored the Lord from many of those that worship at The Cross Worship Ministry.  Eleven different worship teams participated, each team bringing their own unique sound.

In addition to fishing, canoeing, bean bag toss, swings for the children and a hammock to rest in, this year we also enjoyed watching the remote control boats in the lake, some with their lights on as dusk began to descend upon us.  It was quite entertaining for the boys in the picture here!

There were plenty of good eats all the day long, beginning with egg and cheese croissants.  The grill masters turned out some delicious chicken and hotdogs to go with chips, coleslaw and plenty of desserts, including some scrumptious homemade ones!  There were plenty of ice cold sodas as well as bottles of water too.

We want to give a big shout out of THANKS to all those who participated in so many different ways to help make this year’s Open House a wonderful day.  This is like family here.  You pitched in and did what you saw needed to be done!  Thank you so very much!
