This past week our church, Treasuring Christ Church, celebrated their three year anniversary. At the fellowship we had a time-line up on the wall showing different highlights in our past and how the church had started. I was really blessed by the time-line because it evidenced how our church had been prayed over and sought for years before the first meeting. And how our pastors prayerfully went about starting the church. I started attending TCC about 6 months after the first meeting, so I've been there a long time but I wasn't there in the beginning when the origins was explained so it was fun to learn about.
Serving on the fellowship committee I have the unique opportunity to serve food when we all eat together. It's pretty much the highlight of any fellowship for me because I get to talk to almost everyone at our church. It's brief, but I do get to look them in the eye and have a conversation with them. And they're always glad to see me because they know I have the food. Even though we aren't a big church (150 strong!), it can still be difficult to see everyone on a Sunday and so it's nice to be able to just say "hi!" to those I often miss.
For the fellowship I made a cake in the shape of a church. Here are a few photos:
For a while people wouldn't cute into it, but then a certain 4 year old lopped off the steeple and the cake got eaten. Which I'm thankful for because I didn't want to bring the whole thing home with me. It was really fun to get out all my cake tools and decorate it - but I haven't done anything like this in years so I was a bit unsteady. But it turned out pretty well. So the next time you need a church shaped cake (or a house) let me know and I'll show you how to make one.
