A Medicine You Won't Mind Taking
by Tom Goodman
March 13, 2013

Reba McEntire once said, "To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone."

An upcoming event will help you work on that third one.  It's called the "Sweet Life Dessert Comedy Theater."

Dessert and comedy:  What a perfect combination!

We've invited family comedian Scott Davis to bring the laughs on Saturday, April 13.  He's not just bringing the laughs, though.  He's bringing the gospel.  And that means this event is designed for you to bring a seeking friend.

You'll have two chances to hear him, at 6:00 pm and 8:30 pm.  We've even made childcare available.  (I'll tell you more about that in a moment.)

So, if you and your friends don't tend to stay out late, don't let the 6:00 pm show sell out before you get a ticket.  Or, if you'd rather take your friends to dinner and save the dessert and laughter for after dinner, you'd better get tickets to the 8:30 pm show before they're gone.

Yes, these shows are likely to sell out.  That's why I'm alerting you to this event four weeks ahead.  The wise planners in our congregation will grab their tickets now.

There are two ways to get tickets: at church and online.  Tickets are on sale after Sunday services every week, and also at the church office Monday-Thursday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.  Or, to get your tickets online, click here.

Actually, there's a third way to get your tickets, but its risky.  You can wait until the night of the shows and hope a spot comes open.  Any available tickets at the door will cost $15 instead of $10 for advance tickets.  As I said, you really should get your tickets in advance.

If you need child care, we have it.  Child care is available for children through 4th grade with advance ticket purchases ONLY.  The cost is $5 per child.  Childcare payments/reservations MUST be made when advance tickets are purchased.

Don't pass up this opportunity to introduce a friend to Hillcrest.  Be thinking and praying right now about whom you should invite and secure the tickets you think you'll need.

Proverbs 17:22 (NLT) says, "A cheerful heart is good medicine."  That's why you need to join us on April 13.  Doctor's orders!
