Being as how it is snowing on April 2, it may be time to file an injunction against Punxsutawney Phil. Enough with winter, already!

Rather than host an Easter Outreach on our property, First Central Bible Church joined with the City of Chicopee for their Easter Egg Hunt. This is our second year to participate in the event. We hosted a table where we gave out coffee, water, and snacks. We also gave out free bags which included brochures about the church. Our team served the coffee, gave out the bags, and had many conversations with people. The event allows us to bless the community and be present in a non-threatening manner. Who knows where the conversations and brochures might lead?
This morning, the “Dave Krok Experience”–Dave, Jack, Ron, Jessica, Stephanie, Keli, and Lauren–one of First Central Bible Church‘s worship team played on the stage at the Chicopee Downtown GetDown. From 11:00AM – 12 Noon, they were the featured band on the stage in front of the old library. A number of FCBC folks were present to encourage and worship along with the team. Our presence led to a number of conversations during the concert and afterwards.
You know those signs that say, “Call before you dig”? Well, there is a reason for the warning.
Thursday morning, about 9:30AM, one of our Admin Assistants at First Central Bible Church came down the hallway to say we didn’t have any water. Looking out the window, we saw three City of Chicopee trucks in the parking lot. She went outside to find out what was going on. The apartment complex next door was renovating their playground. The person doing the work was using an auger, probably digging a footing for the new equipment. As you can guess, he hit a water main. Instead of building a playground, he now had a swimming pool. 😉 The city came to the rescue, but first they had to call Dig Safe to find out what else was underground. Fortunately, the water was back on by noon.
A little bit of excitement and humor for a weekday morning.
