Last Sunday those who had babies in 2017 and their families were recognized and prayed over by the elders at the beginning of the worship assembly. Then the elders presented their vision for 2018. Those baptized during 2017 were recognized, given a Study Bible, and prayed over by the elders during a luncheon. Family members and friends gave brief speeches about each one of them. It was a very moving occasion. Thanks to those who prepared and served the food, especially to the ones who prepared special meat dishes for those who had been born again. Pictures are posted. 

Congratulations to Doris Baker who was surprised by her family at her 85th birthday party last Saturday. Many family and church members attended and enjoyed a fine selection of food in the attractively decorated MPR. Pictures are posted.
