Near disaster at church Sunday
We attend a fairly large church here in Georgia, we have about 2200-2500 folks between two services down stairs and two simulcast up stairs. the minister of music arrived at the church about 5:00AM to begin preparing for the first service at 9:30AM, and yes he takes his job very seriously. When he walked in he noticed that the floor in the hall between the main church area and the preschool looked strange. When He got to the main meeting area, it doubles as a gym and dining area on Wednesdays, the floor there not only looked funny but felt funny when he walked on it. The baptistery had over flowed half of Saturday and all Saturday night. So as not to bore anyone reading this we had first service at 9:30AM. Two members have professional carpet cleaning equipment and brought their trucks, I am always there early so I went home got my two shop vacs as did several others. Let me just say it is amazing what can happen when committed folks pull together. It has been estimated that more than 1000+ gallons overflowed the baptistery onto the first area.
Just thought some might find it interesting.
