Thank you to the Children of our church; Pastor MaryAnn; our Music/Choir Director, Mrs. Peduzzi; and our dedicated Teachers for leading an inspirational and FUN worship service on June 10.

Mason and Camilla shared their musical talent during the Prelude, Offertory, and Postlude. The Children's Choir led and performed in the Introit, Anthem, and Choral Response. Maxwell lit the candles and gave the Call to Worship. Lily received her Presentation Bible and used it for the first time to lead the Scripture Reading. Jane provided the message related to the Scripture by reading the Rainbow Story. So many wonderful memories for congregation members were relived through the presentation of the Bible and singing favorite, timeless children's hymns like Jesus Loves Me and the B-I-B-L-E.

A very special moment was the welcoming of our newest church family member, Hadlee, when her parents presented her for baptism. She was surrounded by a circle of friends and love as Pastor MaryAnn performed her first baptism in our church. Mrs. Dunn took a moment to recognize the hard work and dedication of the adult church members who work with our children throughout the year. Layla offered the prayer for giving and Kathleen the Benediction. And of course we had a special time of fellowship following the service with ice cream sundaes served up by the Sunday School.

What a wonderful, blessed day! Thank you to all who planned and carried out this special service...well done!
