End of School Year Bash a Community Success!

The Sunday School teachers have done it again! Lansdowne Baptist Church put on an end of the school year bash for the children of the church and the community. Children of all ages enjoyed the antics of Joyful Noise the Christian clown, who billed himself as the Ringleader of the Ridiculous for the Almighty; Court Jester for Jesus; and the Minion of Mirth for the Holy Spirit. He put on a "spirited" performance that kept everyone entertained and involved.

Also featured were a "Bouncy Castle" irresistible to all children ... and a few adults when no one was looking. Games of musical chairs, water balloon toss, and pinata kept up the activity level throughout.

Of course, wonderful food was available for everyone. Nobody left hungry.

The activities ran from 11 AM until 2 PM and we were all sorry to see it end. A wonderful time was had by all and LBC members and the pastor had some wonderful conversations with members of the community. The pastor's wife and daughter went down to the local music store about a block away and were asked what LBC was up to. More than one person observed "There always seems to be something happening at LBC." We hope so. We are working hard to be about God's business in our community. It was truly joyful business on this beautiful day God gave us.

Hope to see you at next year's bash! You'll be welcome, warmly greeted, fed (physically and spiritually), and sent away with a smile.
