Bread makers in church?!
My colleague just informed me of this creative way to present Bread for the World's mission in a church:
This Sunday an Evangelical Covenant church we work with, Broadway Covenant Church in Rockford, IL, is doing Offerings of Letters (OL). The pastor, a long time Bread member, has been preparing his church for the OL over the past several weeks. A few Sunday's ago when he first announced the OL and preached on it he did something unique. He set up 6 bread makers and set them to bake during the service. By the time he got around to preaching, the whole sanctuary smelled like fresh baked bread. He then preached about Mathew 13:33, the parable of the yeast. They used the fresh baked bread for communion last Sunday.
Isn't that a fun, creative way to present Bread for the World's mission?! I wish them the best of luck this weekend as they write letters together. Please let me know of other creative events happening on your campus community.
