On August 25 our small group loaded up in the bus for a fun evening of food and driving. The back of the bus looked like this:
Everyone took turns going to the back to get a plate of fruit, nuts, bread, crackers, and of course, cheese and wine. Actually, most of us had sparkling cider.
Here's our cool small group next to the bus:
Our first stop was salad and bread in Puyallup at the Metcalfes:
Then we went to Dupont where the Norquists and Nevils served us the main course of potatoes and ham:
And then back to Lakewood for chocolate dump cake and berry cobbler at the Schocks:
It was a great summer fun day with our small group. We love these fun people. And now our cool mixed church small group has divided and one family moved away. Growing and birthing seems to be the way of small groups. But we'll never forget all the wonderful times we've shared with these families and how God has blessed us with these great friends.
