MORE OF WHY I LOVE MY CHURCH!

I have written many times, over the 5 years I've had Penless Writer, about my wonderful church.  Well, here is another small (because they are young) but BIG reason I love my church and the multifaceted ministry that takes place there almost every single day of the week.

This was a slumber party last Friday evening that 61 young girls from the Childrens ministry attended!.

Just look at these sweet, precious, faces!!!
And THESE are the 12 wonderful teachers & parents that were slumber-less as they over saw this fantastic event.  
As you can see, the "adults" (kids at heart!) can and do have as much fun as the kids!!

While this excitement was going on in the gym in the ORC building 

THIS - was going on in an activity room in the main church.
A surprise 70th Birthday Party for a dear friend, Thelma, put on by her children and grandchildren.
It's hard to pull off a BIG SURPRISE party like this but pull it off they did.
Family & friends from as far away as California and Missouri and then many of her church family.
A delightful, covered dish meal. Then this beautiful and tasty 3 tier cake that was made by one of the relatives and cream puffs, to the right.

Yes, we are so blessed to be part of an active Body of Believers who are not only reaching out to the community on a daily basis: Klothes Kloset, King's Kitchen, Repair & Maintenance Ministry just to name a few - but also know how to have fun and joy as they serve the Lord together. 

AND BEST OF ALL~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Don't have pictures to show on this but Sunday morning, at the 10:45 service,
25 NEW SOULS WERE BAPTIZED!!!

IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT.  THANK YOU LORD!!!
