WHAT HAPPENED IN JUNE?

June is bustin’ out all over! Well it is finally green anyway although a bit chilly.

We had a memorable MEMORIAL DAY.

Pastor’s family was visiting and what a good looking bunch of women he has. It has to make up for the all boy grandson team!

 

 

 

Pastor Don and the worship team preformed Aaron Tippin’s “Where The Stars And Stripes And The Eagle Fly”. A slide show depicted the words with lots of patriotic enthusiasm. Seems the world has been steering us away from patriotism for many years and I find it a rousing joy to wave and salute the Flag.

 

Brenda and Derek kicked off the FIRST SUMMER PARTY on a perfect day.

BEACON OF HOPE CELEBRATES ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY

I was in Colorado but I understand that Pastor Don laid out goals and projects for the future. He also spoke about what we, as the body of Christ, have achieved in the past year with Gods blessings. There was an opportunity for people who have decided to become members of Beacon of Hope to sign the Statement of Faith and put their‘John Hancock’ on the historic record. The J’s have it! John Casey, Joyce Cornwell, Jeff Wooden, Janice Wooden and one anonymous J whom we are all enjoying visiting with. Welcome brothers and sisters.

The kids certainly enjoy ‘Aunt Louise’ giving the CHILDRENS MESSAGE in the many voices she uses. Imagine Noah speaking with Bart Simpsons voice! Gotta love her.
