Good evening everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Today is Children's Day, the day we celebrate the end of the Sunday School year. We gave out certificates to all the students for completing their respective grade levels. The Sunday School students also participated in the worship service.
We also gave out scholarships to two graduating high school seniors - Josh Marren and Haley Larsen. We congratulate them both on graduating high school and wish them well in their future journeys.
We also enjoyed a time of food and fellowship at the luncheon that followed the worship service.
