Reunionize Time! Saturday - Aug. 10, 2013, Pineville NC

Our First Annual 

Reunionize Time!

Saturday - Aug. 10, 2013 

2-6 pm

Pineville Lake Park 

1000 Johnston Dr. 


John O'Leary - our faithful sound man 
at All Nations Church,
serving from 1995 to at least 2002!

Greetings to all of thee.

Let's get together again! 
("Come together, right now...")

Missed fellowship will all of your old church and ministry friends? The ones the Lord did indeed join you together with? We sure have. 

So let's do something about it.

Let's have a BIG reunion! 

I say it's "Reunionize Time!"

It truly is time to get it back together. We need to stop the enemy from robbing our joy, peace and love for one other, that our Good Father intended, and still does, for us to share with one another.

It is time to come out of our houses, off the couch, and participate once again in His purposes for each of us together. It just is.

So...we are willing to start.

If there are any of our connected e-mailers, Bloggers, Twittervillees and/or FaceBookie friends out there, who either went to church with Laurie and I, or were on ministry staffs or worship teams, or are part of the three main ministries we are currently involved with...did I leave out anyone? (Sure hope not.)

So let's do something about it.

Let's have a BIG reunion! 

I say it's "Reunionize Time!"

Saturday, August 10, 2013

Time will be from 2-6 pm. 

Pineville Lake Park 
1000 Johnston Dr. 

Each family will need to bring a dish to pass and some cola or water drink. Bring the old kids, young kids, and ones still cookin'. The park provides grills, but bring your own charcoal if needed. Pretend you are going on a picnic, so you bring all you would need.

Haul in the grandkids too, so the grandpas can run them down to get in some "off the couch" exercise.

All for the purpose 
of being together,
to have some good, 
old fashion bonding, 
fellowshipping time
in His prescense.

Write me back to get on the Reunionize Time update list - martinlighthouse@gmail.com

Shalom y'all,

Steve & Laurie Martin

P.S. Please pass this onto those who would like to join us but don't communicate through social media or any other modern day technology. (I have to print this out for Laurie!) Or others who need to read a really good blog once in a while.

And if they can't make it, we can Skype them, like we may do with Sandi and Sue Lucas who live in San Antonio!

P.S.S. Enjoy the memory lane photos below! Can you remember who, when and where? You may be tested on these at the gathering, for they have been important, Body-connecting matters.

I may have to bring some copies of my 8,745, that I have just on my FaceBook page alone.

But here are a few...near the beginning...

 Some of the worship teams over the years...
