BIG PIG GIG

The Pig Gig’ was an outdoor carnival created to bless the Edmonds community with food, fun and a ton of Southside LOVE.  It ran in Edmonds for quite a few years before becoming 'A Taste of Edmonds’. There were games, roast pigs, a stage for skits, singing and more.  For as many years as the event ran, the Lord held off the rain.  One year there was literally rain all around ETC, with an opening of clear sky right above the event.  Rain often came before and after the event, but God’s favour was evident DURING these times of blessing the neighbourhood.

MUFFINS + PROSTITUTES

Feeding the poor in Edmonds has long been a vital part of who we are in our Edmonds neighbourhood.  In a Mission Group with Connie Barnhouse as the leader, the Mission Group prayed to ask the Lord how to be involved in the neighbourhood.  During some listening prayer – the group heard the following words "prostitutes" "cookies and muffins" "Kingsway and Edmonds".  Putting the pieces of this prayer time together their Mission Group began baking muffins and cookies and handing them out to people around the ETC building.  This led to noticing that Salvation Army brought food to people at the front of ETC on Monday nights. Their Mission Group began to open the building and serve coffee and treats so that people had a warm place to sit and enjoy their meal.  This happened for a number of years.

PRAY FOR EDMONDS THAT...

Please pray for the ETC neighbourhood and for the ETC property – confirmation, Royal Bank (proceed), future vision of what to build "With" the neighbourhood. Spend some time praying with your group.
