It Was Party Time!










New Year's Eve Service has always been a festive time at our church. Tonight was no exception. This service is the longest service of the year starting at 8:00 p.m. and lasting until well past midnight, but no one is left out. We had nearly 20 solos, six preachers, time slots for testimonies from all generations, and, of course, lots of praise and worship. I must not forget to add we took a break for refreshments. As my husband would say, "What Pentecostals do best - eat." LOL Many come dressed in their "party" clothes and the atmosphere is charged with gleeful anticipation. Throughout the day my daughter Bryn kept asking me, "Is it time to put on my sparkly dress and go to the party?" The night turned out to be wonderful. Blake was styling in his pin-striped velvet blazer, and Bryn was total bling in her completely sequinned sheath and matching cardigan. Also, Blake enjoyed helping the volunteers who prepared the food, Bryn loved singing with her brother Bryce, and Bryce sang, danced, and rejoiced. Our dramatic sign team, MACH 1 - breaking the sound barrier, gave a grand finale with their performance of the remix, The Presence of the Lord Is Here. Yes, it was a great party! Wish you could have been here.
