This year we are going to try a new game (the old White Elephant - Steal each other's gift game took FOREVER!). This year we are going to play "Musical Gifts". It's kind of like musical chairs.
Here's how it works: Eight people are sitting at a round table. Then they all get up and go get a gift from the gift table (not the gift they brought!). Then they sit back down and open the gift. Now the music starts and they must pass their newly opened gift to the person on the right. The gifts keep getting passed around the table - all gifts at the same time. When the music stops, you have to keep the gift in your hands. I hope it works out.
I love our times of fellowship in the Western Baptist Association. I especially enjoy our Monday morning ministers meetings at 11:00 AM at the WBA building. Our ministers are a great bunch of folks.
I hope you can come to our meeting on Monday, December 14. We will be discussing in detail our WBA Evangelisitic Campaign 2010. We want to reach every family in our WBA with the Gospel in 2010. This is going to be fun.
See you Monday!
