Friday Night

We have a very close church fellowship and besides Sunday morning, we get together every Friday night. We all bring our dinners and have a pot luck at a family's house. (I mean the same family's house every week, Bless Their Souls!) With all of the children there can sometimes be 70 - 80 people, maybe more. Often more than just our church members come. We have folks from other churches, some that don't attend church and even a local pastor and his family. We love the diversity! We have been blessed to find a church that does not insist on unity on every doctrine.
My kids love this time. They call it -- Friday Night as in "Are we having Friday Night tonight?" Or "Is so-and-so coming to Friday Night?", "Do you think I'll be well enough to go to Friday Night?" You get the picture.
After dinner the men and women separate and have Bible study, well we call it Bible Study but sometimes we just share what's going on in our lives and pray together. The kids around twelve and under play together outside all evening. The house is situated in the middle of one hundred acres. The driveway is 7/10ths of a mile long and paved so they love to ride bikes and scooters and pull wagons up and down it.
Well, it's off to Friday Night. If any of y'all are ever in the neighborhood, stop by and enjoy the chaos, er, I mean fellowship! :)
