|Penny Car Wash|

We had our first Penny Car Wash today!
People came to us, got their car washed, and got a penny with a connect card.
Of course, people thought they were going to be giving the penny. Or more.
I love creative ways of showing God’s love!
When asked why we refused to take money, I found myself saying, “God’s given us so much already, we just want to give back to the community.”
We got this idea from Steve Sjogren’s Dollar Car Wash. (“Penny” seemed a better fit than “dollar” here in Central Maine!)
As he says:
Why Do It:
- To show the love of God to our city / community.
- To redefine to our community who God is and who God’s people are:
- We are givers not takers
- We are the people of love, not meanness or accusation
Let’s face it, we have a lot of making up to do for more decades than any of us can count of an extensive negative, judgmental face we have shown to most of our cities.
