To me there is no better way to ring in the New Year than with our church family! Every New Years Eve we gather at the church to watch a slideshow of pictures from the past year which is one of the highlights of the night. (Sadly I can't get it to upload here!) Of course we have tables and tables of food and we ate and fellowshipped with one another before getting into the rest of the night.
Chandler and Nel had us rolling (literally dying!) on the floor with laughter as they did their skit on "side effects".
We had several of our men, both young and old preach wonderful messages.
Many people got up and sang beautiful songs of worship!
We then played a few games, watched a Christian comedy video and at 11:30 PM we started praying and prayed in the New Year. Seriously one of my favorite activities of the year!
For New Year's Day we had several people off work
and they came to work on the building.
They got a lot done and it is so exciting so much progress!
It has been a wonderful start to the New Year and we are looking forward to see what God does with Fellowship Baptist Church in 2014!
