Kevin and I attended a Sweetheart Dinner and Dance at our church for Valentine's Day. The event supported missions here and abroad. The dance raised over $5,000 dollars through a silent auction and offerings from attendees. Fortunately, one of our meal choices was pasta with meat sauce that was very good. We got to sit with our friends, Felicia and Matt, and Jamie and Dale at our table. I think all of us were a bit concerned about the median age of attendees for the party that ran from 5:30- 8:00. However, it was a good mix of people and we danced to some slow songs and got to speed it up later. It is often difficult to transition into a new congregation, but our transition into the St. John's flock has been smooth and rewarding. Praise God!
