April 30 – Holy Humor Sunday

  “Don’t Miss the Boat!” 

You are invited to celebrate the joy of the resurrection with laughter and fun!

Many American churches have resurrected an old Easter custom begun in the early centuries of Christianity: “Bright Sunday” was a laughter-filled celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on the Sunday after Easter. The custom was rooted in the musings of early church theologians that God played a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead.

Deer Park UMC continues the tradition (two weeks after Easter) this year with the theme “Don’t miss the boat!” Think Noah…Ark…Rainbow…

Ways to join the celebration:

  • Wear rainbow colors
  • Bring your favorite stuffed animal
  • Invite a friend…or two
  • Just come & wear your brightest smile!

“SOUPER” BOWL VII – Final Update

The final score: “Organ” side: 538 / “Screen” side: 601 “WOW” what a quarter.

The “Screen” side took the lead in the 4th quarter that produced 452 containers of soup.

The Soup just kept pouring in all morning and although the score did not break the all-time high, it does become the second highest total in our seven years of “Souper” Bowls.

I guess what this reporter heard really is true “nothing is impossible with God.” It was an exciting game with outstanding efforts from players on both sides.

The MVP for the game is Dave Buckland, who not only delivered all the soup to Carroll County Food Sunday (took 2 trips), but who also delivers all the food that is collected each week throughout the entire year.

All players are reminded that they cannot rest on their SOUPER Bowl achievements and should begin practicing right away for next year’s SOUPER Bowl VIII by bring non-perishable food items to the narthex each Sunday for the Carroll County Food Sunday program.

Before signing off we have a message from the folks at Carroll County Food Sunday who say “Thank You” and they can’t wait for next year’s game.

This final report brought to you by Deer Park Soup Central – see you next year for “SOUPER” BOWL VIII.
