canvascommunity's Night with the Stars

Many of you know that I am on the leadership team for a new worship community where Jamey is the Pastor. We started off as a group of about 12 people meeting together to go through a study on Worship...after just a few weeks we realized there was so much more God had in store for this small group. After meeting together for about 2 years now we have a group of about 50 people who meet together every Monday night on 7th Street in downtown Little Rock. On Monday, November 9th canvascommunity will launch as a church with the Central Arkansas District of the United Methodist Church.

A few weeks ago there were a few people who sponsored a benefit night to support canvascommunity. We had our gathering at Star Bar in downtown Little Rock...the special guest DJ of the evening was none other than our very own Wes Bentley.

During Wes' visit here he & Jamey did an interview about the church for local news station.

Please go check out the canvas website & the interview link to find out more about the church but for now enjoy some pictures from the week that Wes & his girlfriend Jacqui were here...

So I got a call from Rob telling me he needed my help. Of course I said I'd be glad to help him and asked what was up. He said he wanted to give Jackie a surprise birthday party.... and so the plans began. Phone calls, emails, facebook messages, all behind Jackie's back. Even Mammaw B was in on the scheme. And we pulled it off.

As you can see by the photos of Jackie when she came into my mom's house, we really got her. Take a look:

Michelle ordered the Birthday Cake. It was supposed to say:

(Momma, Mamaw, Aunt)

After a conversation with the store manager and almost walking out without a cake, they were offered quite a discount due to the cake decorator's mistake.

Gag gifts were the order of the night.

Here are some more photos from the party:

Get a cup of coffee, or in my case a Dr. Pepper, it may take you a few minutes to get through all the photos, but that's what it's all about....

On September 16th we gathered at the Hospitality House in Burns Park for a great time with family. If my count is correct there were 67 of us there (though my count could be challenged). Mammaw B looked beautiful, but I think everyone would agree with me that the best news of the day was that Uncle Fred and Aunt Ann were able to join us.

As the pictures will confirm, food was in abundance.

Jackie locked her keys in her car and the "men" of the family quickly came to her rescue!

And there is no better way to spend an afternoon than sharing a great meal with people you love being with.

For now I will let the pictures speak for me.

We do have a good time together!

Thanks so much to Rob and David Bruce for sharing their photos. And just to let you know,this is only a portion of the pictures taken that day. Hope you enjoy. Be sure to leave a comment.
