Young and Old | A Perfect Match

Friday night was church fellowship.

This fellowship was themed as game night, complete with dessert and Bible time. We weren’t sure how it would work, with such a wide variety of ages, but it was a wild success. The ladies were still talking about it at church on Sunday. Others who hadn’t come realized what they’d missed out on and wondered when the next one would be.

Some highlights:

  • Watching one lady flipping cards for the Spot-It game.
  • Hearing Tina cheer, “Yay! Good job!” when someone made a match.
  • Seeing ages 7 to 91 involved in a game of UNO.
  • Teaching octogenarians to play Apples to Apples (disclaimer: some cards we skip).

Connect Four in action. Uncles and aunts are so much fun to play with!

Andrew is such a cool little guy. You’ll find him either sucking his thumb or on the move.


The lady in the middle was a great card flipper. It was really sweet, because she could even understand Tina.


The treats were a hit.

See what I mean about the thumb?DSC_4153

We had Bible time, and it was so sweet watching the ladies listen to Abby take a turn and read verses. She reads the Bible with ease at only 7!DSC_4162DSC_4164

and the beauty of old men is the gray head.”
