Tunes on Trade 09

Tunes on Trade is finally here! This Friday night we will be at thriving downtown Greer hosting the Kidzone. We will be setting up at 6:30 pm and will be done by 9:30 pm . Several thousand people will be there enjoying the music and food. Many will come by and see us with their kids to the Kidzone. It will be a great opportunity to meet people and build more bridges in our community. Allow me to share some of the materials we will be using to build bridges Friday night: two inflatables, face painting, street chalk art, and a table set up for kids to make Father's day cards. Many of you have signed up on your Connection Cards from Sunday to help. We will be there for the next six Friday nights. If you could give us one Friday night that would be awesome! There's still an opportunity to get in on the fun. Please contact Shelley Thompson at shelley@ridgeviewchurch.net and let her know you're in!
 
By the way, one of the sponsors of the event, as you can see from the logo, is Budweiser. Our church, by participating in Tunes on Trade, is not endorsing alcohol consumption. I personally do not drink alcohol but I believe if it is taken in moderation it is not a sin. If you are uncomfortable working in an event where alcohol will be served (down the street some yards away from our Kidzone), I understand. But, I like what Christian author Neal Cole said in one of his books: "If you want to reach people you've got to sit in the smoking section." We'll be in the smoking section Friday night!
