It was potluck time again for Resurrection Church and it just may have been the best church potluck ever held. This Valentine themed event which saw tables covered with red and white tablecloths and heart shaped balloons for centerpieces was held on February 8 at the Activity Center and was attended by eighty-three people.

As with all church potlucks, everyone brought a dish to share. The result was more than enough food plus a number of tasty desserts. The fellowship was great too, as many people got to know better those who they sit next to on Sunday mornings.

Special guest for the evening was newly appointed and new on the job Pastor of Outreach Randy Winsand. The potluck was Pastor Randy’s second introduction to the SaddleBrooke congregation, his having attended both SaddleBrooke Sunday services the day before. Also attending was Senior Pastor Al Jensen and his wife Char as well as Pastor Wayne Viereck and Pat and Pastor Roy Guinn and Marge.

Responsibility for planning the evening rested with the OWLS (Old Wise Ladies) which is the church group overall in charge of all women’s and social activities. An OWLS committee established to specifically orchestrate the potluck consisted of Sharon Dunn, Marty Harsch and Sandi Newberry and other assistance came from Sharon Sneen, Karen Hustad and Kelly Rospond. They got major help from their men when it came time to do the heavy lifting and to set up the room for the evening.

Resurrection church at SaddleBrooke holds its traditional all-denominational Sunday worship services at 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. in the Vermilion Room at the HOA 1 Clubhouse. Easter Sunday, March 27, the Vermilion Room is not available so there will be no services in SaddleBrooke. For those who reserve a seat, bus transportation will be provided to the 9:15 a.m. service at the main campus.

Starting Sunday, April 3 Resurrection will return to one service at 10:00 a.m. This will continue until fall when two services will resume.
