As many of my readers know, we gather regularly with the church on Sunday mornings in a rented facility. We gathered at unscheduled times throughout the week as well. But, we like to change up those scheduled Sunday gatherings as well, to remind us that we are the church whenever and wherever we gather together.
Sometimes we go camping together. Sometimes we gather in homes instead of the rented facility. Sometimes we get together on Sundays at a local lake or park.
But, one of our favorite places to gather is the beach. Once or twice each summer, we spend Sunday at Wrightsville Beach. We talk, play in the sand and sun and surf, eat together, play volleyball, etc. It’s always a great time to relax and encourage one another.
We also always invite other people to join us. We’ve had family members, friends, and neighbors join us at various beach trips. Last summer, Randi (a frequent commenter here) and her family joined us. And they plan to join us again this Sunday!
That’s right, we’re headed to beach again this Sunday, June 16! Several of us will make the trip to the beach that morning, and besides Randi and her family, some friends from the Atlanta area are planning to meet us there as well.
If you’re in the area of Wrightsville Beach, NC on Sunday, June 16, or if you’re willing to make the trip like we are, let me know. I’ll be glad to share the details with you so that you can join us. Simply email me at alan[at]alanknox[dot]net for more information.
