Yesterday we found out that our church's bid for the local Jars of Clay concert at the end of the year was accepted. We're excited about this as an opportunity for evangelism in our suburban area. It gives us the chance to show that we Presbies are not just the "frozen chosen" but also people who can embrace contemporary Christian music and culture (sshhh, don't spread that around in the wrong places).
Being Presbyterians, there had to be a discussion of which committee of the session would be in charge of promoting the concert and doing the work associated with it. Although the idea and the bid were put together primarily by the Youth Committee, the Evangelism Committee will become the "lead dog" for the project. Wherever two or three Presbyterians are gathered in His Name, they will form a committee!
I don't understand how bids for these kinds of concerts work, but I do know this group and their popularity, so I'm excited about the opportunity it will present to us and to the community.
