The Church Superbowl PartyPosted: February 3, 2012
It’s super Bowl weekend and chances are you are either going to a party or hosting a party. It’s the biggest sporting event of the year and we like to celebrate it with friends. But if you weren’t invited to a super bowl party, you’re in luck. Your local church is probably having one. Let me tell you what to expect if you attend a church Super Bowl party.
At the church Super Bowl party there will be lots of food. Church goer’s love food. They particularly love pot luck food. In fact, it may be the only food they know. Don’t expect pizza or chicken wings. You’ll only get certain pot luck standards like:
Mystery meatballs in a crock pot.
Cracker and cheese trays bought from the local grocery store.
Chick-fil-a nugget platters with various sauces.
And most importantly… Football shaped cupcakes or cookies with a cross or fish drawn on them instead of football laces.
And, of course, plenty of tea and lemonade.
The second thing to note about the church Super Bowl party is that it will likely be held in the Gym/Fellowship hall. Yes, this is a one of a kind space that is used for many church functions. Not only is it a place to hold sporting events but it usually has a stage built in. One with a permanent podium. It’s perfect for setting up a TV to watch the big game. You’ll know you are in the right place if you see the basketball goals cranked up to the ceiling.
Finally. Don’t expect a halftime show at the church Super Bowl party. In these days of lewd celebrity behavior and wardrobe malfunctions, the church just can’t take the risk of airing the halftime show. They will unplug the TV during this time. Instead of the halftime show, expect an exciting game of bible trivia where winners receive church license plate covers, key chains or mugs. If that isn’t enough, the church will probably have an interpretive dance performance during the halftime show. Why? Because nothing screams football like interpretive dance.
Enjoy the party!
