Happy New Year! Welcome each day of 2017 with thanks and celebration.
It’s been an amazing Christmas. This year we celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ on Sunday which made it very special to hear the scriptures read in church, to sing many of the the Christmas hymns and to enjoy family with the love of the Holy Spirit in the heart.
Families have been enjoying each other’s company all week with food, games and music.
Mycleta Burwell had a house full of grateful people at her table on Christmas Eve. Lots of good food and good fun.
Jack Nunn, Elsie Cartwright, Janie Sheppard and their families, the late Tom and Lois Nunn family, celebrated Christmas at the home of Dr. Earl and Janie Sheppard on Christmas Day. A great family time with the spirit of Christmas.
