Quite a Greek Week-end!

Our weekend was filled with enjoying 2 types of Greek-ness…BOTH the Greek Festival, (as in the nationality), and the fraternity and sorority scene!

Saturday night we made a date of Columbia’s 22nd Annual Greek Festival.  It was fun to people watch and see all the little kids dancing to the Greek music.

And, best of all…we ate Gyros and Loukoumades (Greek donuts) till our tummies were stuffed! I think the food was the real reason we went!!

Sunday morning was Greek Day” at First Baptist of Columbia. More than 900 fraternity and sorority students packed the pews and were honored for their philanthropic service to our community. Of course, the primary reason they were invited was to build a bridge of connection and care between the church and the Greek Community. It is an awesome outreach and not one student left their without hearing the Gospel (and being fed fried chicken, mac and cheese, green beans, rolls, sweet tea and brownies). What a great weekend!
