A big huge thanks to everyone who helped make the 2012 Alexandria Community Picnic a roaring success!
God answers prayer! All last week a number of people and churches were praying that God would bless us with a beautiful day for the picnic and He did. The weather was sunny and warm. The 750 hotdogs went in a flash and the people kept coming and coming.
I can't tell you how exciting it was to see so many families and so many children enjoying themselves. The conversations were non stop as people enjoyed the bluegrass music, cake walks, cotton candy, popcorn, kids games, rock wall, and air jumper.
The best part of the day was meeting so many people who live in our community. In fact a few people told me that they now come every year. What a great thing to know that we have become a part of people's lives.
Our prayer is that the love that was so visible at the picnic will become a regular part of people's lives as they get connected with Grace Church of Alexandria, Good News Baptist Church, Franconia Korean Baptist Church, Iglesia Biblica de la Gracia, Franconia Alliance Church, and Franconia Baptist Church.
