Spurs Corner Church

Apr 09 2018

There's a little country church in the little western Maine town of Otisfield called the Spurs Corner Church. I hadn't been there in years, but they brought me in to do a show for a community outreach program last weekend. I found the church every bit as quaint and welcoming as the last time we were there.

The event was designed to bring in neighbors who might not otherwise have a reason to visit the church. They had a bounce house, crafts, carnival games, a free hamburger lunch and other family friendly offerings. Just before lunch was served, the various games and activities were shut down and I was introduced to do a 45 minute show.

I confess I overplanned routines, but that's always better than underplanning. I talked briefly about our upcoming trip to Uganda, and hope to return to tell them how we experienced God at work there once we return. I'm also happy to report that the payment for this show was what we needed to cover our upcoming shots for this trip, which are not covered by insurance.

The event was a success, over 50 people came out to this little church on Saturday morning, most of whom were not regulars at the church. I hope they were made to feel as welcome and comfortable as I was, and I hope many will return to learn Gods Word and find their place in His family.
