“It is too late! Ah, nothing is too late—
Cato learned Greek at eighty; Sophocles
Wrote his grand “Oedipus,” and Simonides
Bore off the prize of verse from his compeers
When each had numbered more than fourscore years;
And Theophrastus, at fourscore and ten,
Had begun his “Characters of Men.”
Chaucer, at Woodstock, with his nightingales,
At sixty wrote the “Canterbury Tales.”
Goethe, at Weimar, toiling to the last,
Completed “Faust” when eighty years were past.
What then? Shall we sit idly down and say,
“The night has come; it is no longer day”?
For age is opportunity no less
Than youth itself, though in another dress.
And as the evening twilight fades away,
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
It is never too late to start doing what is right.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Hey Rocky River Church - do you know why we exist? Rocky River Church exists to give people the best opportunity possible to become fully committed, growing followers of Christ. This is why we started Rocky River Church 13 years ago. It is our hope that through our events people will come on Sundays to learn about Jesus and use their abilities to serve Him.
We have been doing the Halloweenie Roast and Trunk-o-Treat for many
years now, and it is one of our largest outreaches. This event is about
more than just candy, costumes and hotdogs. We want to reach as many
people as we can to expose families to our church and then invite them
to a Sunday morning service. In fact, we have a BIG Sunday planned for
November 11, 2012. Everyone who comes to the Halloweenie Roast will
receive an invitation to join us on the Big Day where they will hear one
of our members share his story on how God saved him from a near death
Your involvement is key to making the Halloweenie Roast a big
success! We are praying for 1,000 people during this event on Sunday,
Oct. 28th. We your need help in several areas: volunteers, event food
(hotdogs, ketchup, mustard, buns), tons and tons of pre-wrapped candy
and lots of decorated car trunks. If you can help in any way, email
Donnie at Donnie@RockyRiverChurch.com.
Here is what you can pray about for the event: 1,000 people, full
funding for the event and great weather the day of the event and several
days before the event.
Thanks so much! THIS IS GOING TO BE AN AWESOME TIME!
