First, appropriately because the church started with a Sunday School, we started with the children's choir:
This was followed by someone describing highlights from each decade. The platform was beautifully decorated with many sunflowers and chrysanthemums.
He doesn't look as old as he does in this photo! We still attend the church. I teach a Ladies' Bible Study and my husband fills in for one of the Adult Sunday School classes as well as occasionally preaching on Sundays.
There were more than 500 people there and we had to put up some more tables. Our Spanish church which uses one of our buildings also joined in the celebration. It was wonderful to see so many friends, some of whom traveled a long way to be with us on this special occasion.
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME -- ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD
Congratulations on reaching your ninetieth. One third of it with you two. That is quite an achievement in itself.
Congratulations to you all!
Here's to the next ninety years.
Wnderful to see such a great congregation.
The faces of those children really touched me. From 1988 on, I was more involved with high school choirs, but before that, I have fond memories of directing elementary school choirs. There really is no sound quite like that of an enthusiastic group of children singing their hearts out. 500 people attended the .. wow! I'm thinking many knew you and your husband (and to me, he doesn't look old at all) and wanted to reconnect. 30 years of service and still active.. that's a wonderful testament to you and your husband's commitment to God and love for the community.
