The day started with a less-than-exciting breakfast ... especially for a day during which everyone eating it would be going directly to work mostly outside.
Our Ministry With Others sites were the 4Cs (Community Coordinated Child Care) and Woodgreen Apartments (with Volunteers of America). We washed woodwork and weeded flower beds at 4Cs and mulched and worked in the yard at Woodgreen. The 4C team had lunch, but the Woodgreen team was skipped over until we got back to the hotel.
Once we were back at the hotel, we had an hour or two of down time to get ready for dinner at Rocky's Italian Grill. We left for Rocky's in Jeffersonville, Indiana, and Steve, our trusty GPS decided he would stop working. We had a great dinner and cut close to missing the first of service. We got to the KFC Yum! Center a few minutes after 7pm and found a section to sit. Starfield led worship, and Chris Folmsbee spoke on creation. Quite fitting for the first service to be on the first book of the Bible.
After some post-message worship, a multi-lingual prayer served as benediction. Brooklyn Lindsey guided us through three rounds of our panoramic group photo. But someone blinked, so we had to do a fourth.
The TobyMac concert was last on the official schedule for the night, and it was a great time.
After the concert, we met to discuss the service and say "Happy Birthday" to Adam Anderson. Tomorrow is a full day of convention including two services, two meals, and workshops.
