What is hospitality?
Jesus talked about it and practiced it, but are we doing a good job of it in our churches and personal life? What lessons can we learn from the absolute master of hospitality – Disneyland! Come and find out as we learn what it means to Disney to offer hospitality and how we can apply those lessons into our own context. Plus, we will have a lot of fun.
This February, we will be headed to Disneyland for our seventh Faith and Family Trip! I hope as many of you can join us as possible. If we are so blessed to have more than 25 people go, I will put a cap on attendance so it will be as enjoyable as possible. So sign up early and let me know if you’ll be going. Here are the details:
- Date and Time: Sunday, 2/18/18 from 7:30am to 5pm (after that you are free to do whatever you want!)
- Cost: $40 per person + theme park ticket
- Cost includes t-shirt, lunch, snack, and prizes for the group
- What to Expect: Attractions in the morning, lunch and a tour in the afternoon, and a fun group activity for prizes! Everyone gets a little souvenir as well.
We will meet at La Brea Bakery outside of the main gate as you exit the trams from the parking structure. There we will pray together, pass out shirts if you don’t have them already, go over the itinerary so everyone knows what’s going on, and then head in to Disneyland! We’ll go on some rides in the morning, have lunch together, take a tour emphasizing our theme of hospitality by a former cast member – me! And then have a snack and do a fun group activity together for prizes. In the past, we’ve done a cool scavenger hunt throughout the park in teams and the winning team would get a nice prize.
It will be FUN! And hopefully you’ll walk away with a different perspective on church. My hope is to integrate best practices in business and apply them to how we can be more effective for Christ. I’ve led this trip six times before and each time has been a blast. We focus on a theme and explore it together. In the past we’ve done happiness, failure, and change and this trip will be focused on hospitality! Or more how we can use our own radical hospitality to reshape how others see us.
We hope to see you there! Contact me for questions or more information.
