Camp Ivydale Dinner and Pie Auction Fundraiser

Sounds of laughter, the smell of delicious food, festive decorations and the voice of an auctioneer saying “Do I hear….sold for $275! That's a pretty nice price for a pie.  And there were a great many fabulous pies auctioned off in the annual Camp Ivydale Dinner and Pie auction held at Linder Road on November 10th. This event was orchestrated and well attended by members from a number of local congregations of the Lord's church that share in the use, maintenance and upkeep of the beautiful Ivydale campsite and buildings located near Idaho City.  Pie donations were generous in number, and ranged from simple, luscious treats to elaborately themed pieces of art. Regardless of the style, each donated pie was a reminder of the real focus of the event, which is to be good stewards of the gift of Camp Ivydale and to use it as a resource for growing…saying “Do I hear….sold for $275!

17th Annual Spiritual Growth Lectureship Linder Road’s Spiritual lectureship started Thursday, October 11th and continues with sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a theme of “Restore My Soul”. This annual event is such a great time for all who attend the various sessions held over the weekend.  Childcare is provided and the breaks include lots of snacks, juice, coffee and time to connect with one another. And, the lessons provided truly nourish our souls. The sessions this year began with an encouraging Keynote entitled “Keeping Your Eye On The Ball”.   The lesson covered 1 Corinthians 9:24-27, where Paul, the Apostle uses examples from sports and competitions to teach us about staying focused on our spiritual goals. From this lesson, we learned four incentives to help us in the race. First, we are in the race to win it (Hebrews 12:1-3).  Second, we need to be self- controlled in order…ober 11th and continues with sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a theme of “Restore My Soul”.

October in the Treasure Valley can be beautiful yet unpredictable and Saturday, October 6th was no exception as members of the “Young at Heart” group enjoyed a lovely morning walk about the neighborhood south of the Linder church building, and then shared a delicious brunch together. The weather was cool and cloudy with a hint of possible rain, but still comfortable for walking.  The group included some young ones in age as well as “Young at Heart” seniors who chatted and strolled together. It was a way to connect together across the different ages represented while enjoying the fresh air, gentle exercise and stepping over (or in) a few puddles here and there with the little ones. The fellowship hall was decorated in a harvest time theme for the brunch which included hash brown casserole, french toast, bacon, sausage, muffins, fruit, yogurt and orange juice.  After everyone had the chance…xception as members of the “Young at Heart” group enjoyed a lovely morning walk about the neighborhood south of the Linder church building, and then shared a delicious brunch together.

What do S’mores, friends, casseroles, and singing have in common?  Answer: all these were part of the activities on September 23rd during Linder Road’s 21st Annual Friends’ Day.  Members invited friends and family to join in a day of worship and fellowship, including a potluck lunch provided by the members, and an evening fireside devotional service followed by S'mores and social time to connect to one another in the open air. The annual event is one way the Linder Road church reaches out to those we know and invites them to come and see more about Jesus and his way.  (Revelation 22:17 “The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come”. Let anyone who hears this say, “Come”. Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.”) The lesson provided during worship was all about “Belonging to Community” being a basic universal need of… the activities on September 23rd during Linder Road’s 21st Annual Friends’ Day.  Members invited friends and family to join in a day of worship and fellowship, including a potluck lunch provided by the members, and an evening fireside devotional […]

Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm, Linder Road held their annual Community Giveaway.  This event was started in 2003 because two ladies, Nancy and her mother Etta Mae, brought the idea with them when they moved to Meridian. The event is based on the concept of sharing the abundance that overflows from God’s blessings to our Linder family with the surrounding community.  Everything is given away for free! People just come by and pick up what they need. Members of the Linder congregation contribute clothing and various household items for the event. And every year, we are overwhelmed by the generous contributions for this special event. Why do we do this community giveaway in a continuing tradition lasting the 15 years since its inception?  One scripture that comes to mind is from Luke 3:10‭-‬11 "And the crowds asked him (John, the baptizer), “What then shall we…way.  This event was started in 2003 because two ladies, Nancy and her mother Etta Mae, brought the idea with them when they moved to Meridian.
