Next weekend, Saturday and Sunday, we will be hosting the New Amsterdam Boys and Girl Choir from Harlem. They will provide our music in worship.
And they will be hosted the night before, Saturday, by Old First families.
They will arrive about noon on Saturday; store their luggage at church; and then do some sightseeing of the historical places around church.
They will meet us back at church about 6 pm for dinner on Saturday evening. We’re throwing a potluck. That’s when / where the host families will pick up their guests.
But first we’ll have dinner together. …A dinner open to everyone from Old First, whether or not you have guests staying at your house. We’re all hosts at the dinner…
Please plan to bring a dish and join us — it will be a time when we can get to know the young people of the choir and the adults traveling with them a little better.
Michael almost has all the families lined up to host in their homes. But if you can help, please let us know by Sunday at church — you could write it on the friendship pad with your attendance. (Also, someone told Michael last Sunday at church that they wanted to host, and he didn’t get their name written down before he forgot who! If that was you, please let us know by Sunday.
And plan to extend an Old First welcome!
