Young and old gather for ice cream
Central Christian Church celebrated Sunday’s after-worship fellowship with sundaes, ice cream cones and banana splits in honor of National Ice Cream Day.
Prior to the ice cream celebration, Dr. Crawford delivered Sunday morning’s sermon, “The Measures of True Faith,” reflecting on the use of the “plumb line” to build a good foundation.
Following the inspirational service, the congregation gathered in fellowship hall to build one’s own ice cream concoction topped with fruits, nuts, whipped cream and maraschino cherries.
A huge thank you goes to Karen Woods for the beautifully presented “soda shoppe.”
Ice Cream has a long history as the favorite cold treat during the hot summer months.
By the late 1700’s America’s “high society” was enjoying ice cream and the first ice cream parlor opened in New York in 1776.
The “sundae” dates back to the Gay Nineties when ice cream merchants introduced a non-carbonated version of ice cream soda to serve on Sundays in response to criticism of the rich soda as too sinful to be enjoyed on the Sabbath.
Central is the oldest continuously operating Protestant church in Dallas, but it is young at heart and both young and old enjoyed Sunday’s service and fellowship.
