Lunch and Learn at Our Church

Lunch and Learn is a regular event in our community. Various churches host the lunch, and some type of program, usually fun and educational, is given also. The attenders are mostly elderly/retired folks from the community. We had quite a crowd at our church today!
These volunteers came this morning to help with lunch: Sandy, Julia, Martha, Adam, Mary Kathryn, Elaine, Bob, and (front) Anna and Edrae.
Monday night we met to set up the fellowship hall to seat all these people. We'd cleaned windows already, and pulled out more chairs, tables, cloths, and basically spruced up our church facility while we were at it.
The ladies of the church baked cookies, brownies and cupcakes. We put a platter of assorted goodies on each table. Oh, the excitement when the desserts arrived at the tables!
These ladies did not nibble one goodie beforehand. Not one bite :)
Anna and Julia spent time chopping garlic into a fine dice. I can't believe I didn't get a photo of the lunch plate! We served: chicken salad on a lettuce bed, yeast roll, strawberries and cantaloupe, and potato chips -- a perfect, light summer lunch. Quite a few people asked for seconds.
Pamlico Presbyterian Church is happy to be involved in this great community event  that draws Christians together and lets us know about ministries in our area. Today our speaker came from Camp Don Lee, a local Methodist children's summer camp. John Farmer is director there, and he gave a great presentation about the work of Camp Don Lee.


Our Handchime Choir

"Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones; praise is becoming to the upright.
Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings.
Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy."
Psalm 33: 1-3
Our hand-chime choir has enjoyed a fun year of learning music and playing preludes for worship. We played at the Christmas program in December, 2012, and three times during worship this spring. We will take a break for the summer, but return in the fall for another year of beautiful music!

The Green Bay Picnic

The big picnic at Green Bay was lots of fun this year. Our church members are always invited each May to bring a covered dish and share in the festivities. The sun didn't come out much, but thankfully the rain held off. Barbecue and fried chicken and all the trimmings were served under the tent.
At least two people and one dog arrived by boat!
Adam prayed for our meal and then we all dove into the dishes. The tables were groaning from the weight.
Two of the girls from church posed for a quick photo.
And three kids from church took a dinghy out on the choppy water.
They took turns rowing.
Many thanks to the folks at Green Bay for hosting this event and giving us all a chance to fellowship together. It was a great day!
