Green Party

Green Party

On March 16, Monica and I are excited to host our second annual (for Bell Avenue) Green Party!

For review purposes, a Green Party is around St. Patrick’s Day. When you come (from 4:00 PM—6:00 PM) bring something edible to share that is green.

If the food is naturally green, that’s OK—not much fun, but OK. If it is not “naturally” green, you just add green food coloring to make it green. This year we are working on a new and improved voting system for the most creative or unique “green” food.

Think about it this way . . . when Dr. Seuss asks, “Do you like green eggs and ham?” how would you know unless you have actually tried green eggs and ham? Just the same as “Sam I am.”

The other big question that probably comes up is “Why?” What is the purpose? St. Patrick’s Day is not even a “real” holiday: the government and banks are not closed (except when it is on Sunday, like this year).

Many people see holidays as reasons to get together with family. For the most part, Monica and I have always lived a pretty good ways away from our extended family. So we have always looked to spend time with our church family around holidays.

The bottom line is we host this type of party because it is an opportunity to fellowship and have fun with the people we care about. Any holiday, or any day for that matter, is a good reason to get together with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Acts 2:46 says, “And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food (even if it is green), with glad and generous hearts (parenthesis added for emphasis).

So, please mark your calendar for March 16, 2024 from 4:00 PM—6:00 PM for our “come and go” Green Party.
