A beautiful 56 degrees and sunny skies lit up Woodland Skate Park as over 70 guests arrived to eat, skate and worship Easter evening. Hours before, Trinity arrived to set up his 3 tier BBQ system - grilling 44 Cheese Burgers, 48 Hotdogs, bacon wrapped cabbage, and more! Skaters made the most of the weather and took to the skate park.
Following dinner, JuJu gathered on the hill north of the skate park to worship and proclaim the resurrection in our lives. We are coming out of the tomb. While skating away from tragedy, we have encountered the living Christ on the road with us. We are emboldened not to run away from pain but to trusts God transforms it and can bring us all back to life! The meal of unrelenting grace was spread. The bread blessed and love poured out in the name of Jesus Christ. Parents and skaters served communion to any and all. Jesus was again made known in the breaking of the bread (Luke 24:13-35).
This green bean, burger, hash brown casserole is amazing!
I would never cook something like this at home. It's just not in my repertoire. But this creamy, savory dish was a mash hit. We love food a JuJu. It takes a lot of hands behind the scenes to pull off a Friday meal for 50-75 people. For starters, no one RSVPs.
These kids come hungry!
The rolls this day were made and frozen in advance by a woman before she left for India. The beef was donated by a local rancher and rotarian who sells nothing but the best highland angus beef. The green beans were donated by local church folk. This couple put the whole meal together AND had the privilege of serving up smiles all night.
If you are interested in helping with a meal, email Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply go to "Give" and donate a Costco card. We will gladly serve it up with a smile on your behalf.
