Our July 4th Bash – Rain Delayed

EPC - 4th of July Bash - Graphic B

Okay! Normally I’m the type who is praying, believing, & telling everyone else that it will not rain on 1 of our events. However, faced with a 100% chance of heavy thunder storms, flash flood warnings, every municipality in our region cancelling July 4th festivities, etc – I believe their are times when we need to strike a balance between our faith & the common sense & intelligence God has blessed us with.

So, to that end – we are rain-delaying our big July 4th Bash until this Sat. July 6th @ 5PM. * NOTE: There is a 50% forecast for showers that evening – so please join us in praying that God holds off the rain & we can have a great party, cookout, & fireworks extravaganza.

In case you missed out on the details of this – every year we do a BIG 4th of July Bash with over 100 of our closest friends. Yeah – Gina & I don’t know how to do anything on a small scale. In fact, last year we had about 140 people join us for our Party.

Basically, everyone brings chairs & food. The little kids play in our big backyard (we have a trampoline, playset, bounce house, swimming pool for younger kids, & sandpit), older kids & teens play soccer, basketball, etc & the adults relax, eat good food, & get to know a bunch of great people.

The festivities start at 5PM – Shhhhh! – when the sun goes down we have a ridiculous amount of fireworks as well. Below is some information you need to know & I hope you will be able to join us.

* Bring the whole family – we have a trampoline, bounce house, swimming pool for younger kids, playset, & sandpit to keep the kids busy so adults can relax
* Bring main dish, side dish, and/or dessert for a bunch of people (POTLUCK) ***We’ll take care of burgers & hotdogs.
* Bring chairs for your family to sit on – we’re expecting 100+ people
* Bring whatever you want to drink in your own cooler. NOTE: This is not an official church function – just friends getting together to celebrate.
Our address is 5780 Stonehaven Drive, Kennesaw, GA 30152. I hope to see you there!
