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! Join us as we find out what it means from Disney to offer hospitality and how we can apply those lessons into our own context. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
This February, we are headed to Disneyland for our seventh Faith and Family Trip! I am excited to share this adventure with all of you and hope this is a great chance for us all to get to know each other better and inspire us to do more as people of faith. Here are the details:
Our plans are to have dinner together on Saturday at Downtown Disney, meet up early on Sunday to take advantage of being there at opening, have some devotional time together, and head into the park. We’ll go on some rides in the morning, have a mid-morning snack together, take a tour emphasizing our theme of hospitality by a former cast member – me! And then have a cool scavenger hunt and end up with a nice late lunch (linner?) and do a fun group activity together for prizes. After that it’s free time!
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. This trip will be focused on hospitality and how we can use our own radical hospitality to reshape how others see us and grow our church together.
Here’s our schedule for Sunday:
8:00am – 8:30am – Meet in front Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express for some breakfast beignets! Join together for a prayer and small devotional
