So, when I say we’re enjoying our new space to meet on Sundays, I’m talking about two kinds of space. We are enjoying the cozy atmosphere of Galileo’s, and how it just seems to suit us. But we are also enjoying the breathing room—space to hang out, with a little more time to visit before and after the service. The owner’s of Galileo’s have been very generous towards Mountainside, working out an arrangement for us to use the space on Wed, Thurs, and Fridays for after school community classes, and a “Mom’s Morning Out”. There is room for us to grow (numerically) and connect with new people, and there is room for us to grow (relationally) as we spend more time together.
This coming Sunday (Oct 21) everyone—even if you don’t come for the 10:30am service—is invited to join us for a “Crocktober Fest” meal. Right after our gathering, starting at 12 noon, we will be digging into dishes prepared by our families from small groups. Some of it will be warming up in crock pots down stairs, making our mouths water! Good things happen when we share a meal together—it’s a sign of friendship in many cultures and many places; and it’s also true here in Boone!
