Our church had a combined worship service and luncheon yesterday. It was wonderful to see so many of our members in one place! Yesterday was the first Sunday of Advent, so it was sort of a new year’s party for the church. We were blessed with beautiful music (2 harpists played together, the adult choir and children’s choir sang, and the congregation sang out loud), a worshipful gathering, and great food!

The ladies put a lot of work into setting up for 168 people.
