Our Sunday School class at First Baptist Church, the "Mustard Seeds" gathered Saturday, December 17, for our annual Christmas party.
Debbie and her husband Harry (not pictured) hosted us again this year. They are gracious hosts. They make decorating for Christmas and art!
We enjoyed talking and singing Christmas carols.
Lewis Meyers (standing) who has has taught the class for years led the group in singing Christmas carols.
John and Charlotte ham it up.
Last year the party was interrupted by a small electrical fire in the bathroom wall and a visit by the Henrico County Fire Department (see post from Dec 2009) Several of us wore play fire hats to commemorate the ocassion.
Every baptist gathering has to include a lot of food and this was no exception.
The Mustard Seeds are an exceptional group of people. They are serious about their faith, they are committed to following Christ. They are serious prayer warriors. They are active in ministry and missions and they are generous when presented with an opportunity for ministry or missions. They also enjoy good food and fellowship!
It reminds me of Philippians 1 where Paul says: "I thank my God every time I remember you in all my prayers for all of you. I always pray with joy in all my prayers for all of you because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1: 3-6.
