We always enjoy watching our kids in front of the church. We did have some unable to attend and had to “Make do” as they say, but always so proud of them. Thanks kids!FullSizeRender - Copy (2)

2017 Women’s Fresh Encounter

The Ky. State Women’s Fresh Encounter in March was thoroughly enjoyed by those that attended. Kathy Luttrell, Gail Osborne, and Theresa Ballinger. They took a basket full of items to do with gardening to be used as a gift for a name drawn. As well as the spiritual blessing received, and renewing of old friendships, they browsed the tables of items for sale, (expensive hats, lol!) and enjoyed watching a girls basketball team, and their fans, who were in tournament in Lexington.

Church Cleaning Day 3-31-17

There always comes a time, just like a regular house, when the church needs a deeper clean than is usually given per week. So now is the time! Thanks to all that came out and helped CLEAN their church house! FullSizeRender - Copy (2)

Church Christmas Party 2016

Even though the men of the church seem to love the full meals we have, they always get plenty and more at our Christmas Party when all bring finger foods! Love the dips, cheeseballs, little smokies, chicken wings, meatballs, etc., etc. Love the homemade cookies, desserts and the spiced cider! We had carols, devotion and games. Written games, and a game of making antlers out of pantyhose and water balloons (minus the water, haha), and a game where two wrapped a gift, each using one hand. A lot of fun for all ages!

Ladies Christmas Party 2016

What a great time the ladies had at the Christmas Party! Sister B, pastor’s wife, hosted the party in her home. There was plenty of food and yummy goodies, plenty of fun with games led by Gail Osborne, plenty of laughter from fellowship. Much enjoyment from opening gifts brought to exchange. A party we look forward to each year. Amazingly, the temp was so warm, there was no way to enjoy logs burning in the fireplace!

Kidz Christmas 2016

The Kidz had a great time watching a Disney movie at a local theatre. We had not done this before, so it was a different Christmas activity.

Their Christmas skit was “Happy Birthday, Jesus!” They talked of His birth, had a birthday cake and sang the song with the same name as the skit title. Morgana sang Silent Night, Jaci sang and played piano for Away In A Manger and Sarah, Jamie and Cayleigh sang Joy To the World.FullSizeRender - Copy (2)

Kidz Fall Party 2016

What a fun time! Some of the children came dressed up. We had fire pits to roast the hot dogs over and make s’mores at the end of the party. The craft area was set up in the “spooky” church garage where many things are stored. Of course they received a bag of candy and light up bracelets/necklaces/wands for each child.fullsizerender-copy-2

Shoebox Packing Party

We met at 6 and enjoyed hot dogs/ chili, chips, cake and brownies to give us the energy to fill the boxes, haha. We have gathered specific items every month to put in the shoeboxes. These boxes are sent overseas to poor countries through Franklin Graham’s ministry, Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry. We place the following items in each box from age 2-14, male and female. Socks, Ivory soap and washcloth, toothbrush and toothpaste, pencil box, pencils, pens, sharpeners, erasures, glue stick, crayons, markers, age appropriate toys, stuffed animal and bag of candy. Obviously the boxes are full! We had 17 come to fill the boxes and they all prayed over the boxes and the children who would receive them. Samaritan’s Purse ministers to the children when they get the boxes, and giving them a booklet printed in their language. Our church feels we are participants in this mission ministry and glad to spend the money and time it takes to make our part successful. We filled 200 shoeboxes this year! Praise God!fullsizerender-copy-16
