In January 2020, the Spartanburg, S.C., Church held a Saturday night game night and invited church members, as well as friends made during a recent prophecy series. A nine-hole mini golf course had been constructed and set up throughout the Eddlemon Adventist School building. Individual church members and several ministry teams — church choir, young adult small group, Pathfinder club, and various youth groups — designed and built the mini golf holes, each of which took upwards of 18 to 20 hours to complete.
The evening began with Vespers, continued with food and fellowship, and finished with mini golf. When participants reached the ninth hole, they used a potato gun to shoot a golf ball into the softball field where the final hole was located to conclude the round. While the golfers played, others played cornhole, Pit, Rook, and other games. It was a fun evening and a great opportunity to get to know each other better. It’s quite possible that this was the beginning of an annual event.
