It was not business as usual at Family Night Supper on October 27th, when FPC youth brought the spotlight to bear upon our stewardship campaign, “Whose Life Will Change Because I Give?” through the use of drama. With poignant levity they reminded us of just how many lives our gifts give as they presented a skit entitled, “Are You Smarter Than A Retired Sunday School Teacher?”
The contestant, Peggy Sue Lambert, played by Rev. John Arnold, answered a bevy of questions about stewardship with the help of his classmates, Ruth Beaker (Matt Arnold), Petunia Bucket (Jake Boyles), Earnestine Corn (Ethan Davitt), and Mildred Burge (Taylor Sexton). Emily Andrews and Erin Gloster played Jane and Jan Foxworthy, the game show hosts.
Peggy Sue buried the hatchet with her life-long rival Petunia Bucket (pronounced, Bouquet)
to win a million dollars and in the process we were reminded that not only do our gifts change the lives of our children, our leaders, and needy people within our community, but our giving changes us.
Don’t forget to bring your pledge for the coming year on Commitment Sunday, November 3. If you are unable to attend worship, feel free to drop off your pledge card at anytime in the office.
Many thanks to Susan Arnold, Susan Morehead, Jeff Daniels, Vickie Nash and our camera man Andrew Gloster for making the evening a fun and meaningful reminder of the blessing of giving.
