野餐會 Annual Picnic

CCCNJ annual summer picnic was held on August 5, Saturday. Praise God for a beautiful sunny day. More than 300 members and friends, young and old, came to enjoy the fun and fellowship and of course the delicious food we prepared.
 
Our brothers set up the tents, tables and chairs in the morning. Many families brought various home-cooked food items in the early afternoon which includes cold noodle appetizer, tea-flavored eggs, western and Asian sauces for noodles, chicken wings, salads, corn, watermelon, green bean soup and drinks. People started to arrive at 3pm.
 
Many brothers were busy attending to the BBQ stations grilling pork chops, hamburgers and hotdogs. The sisters were making scallion pancakes in the kitchen, which were then pan-fried by the cooking station outside. There was not a moment of time wasted as the chefs were busy serving long lines of “customers”. The love and humility shown by the volunteer cooks was really heartwarming!
 
We also have invited our friends and neighbors to enjoy the picnic with us and people were sharing and talking as they enjoyed the meal. Fourteen groups of volleyball and basketball teams formed from a mix of various age groups started their playoff games. They were fiercely competitive! Large group of children were happily playing at game stations. Lively music throughout the afternoon made the event like a carnival!
 
Three congregations, the Mandarin, English and Taiwanese, coordinated and worked together for the picnic. Our church members from infants to senior citizens spent a memorable afternoon together as a big family. Truly, how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! We welcome you to join us in worshiping and fellowship in our big family of CCCNJ!
