2nd Annual Church Picnic on the Farm

Today our church's congregation gathered at the pastor's farm for our May picnic fellowship supper. Pastor Adam set up a grill area, a tent to cover the serving tables, and some tables and chairs for everyone to relax and eat.
 Although some folks are out of town traveling, we had a good turn-out and delicious food: hotdogs, ribs, baked beans, salads, baked and fried chicken, and cookies for dessert.
 Quite a few guests took a little tour of the pasture, the garden, and the greenhouse, and a few ladies toured the pastor's home.
 Around 3:00 the weather was sunny, very warm and still, and the flies were annoying.

 By 5:00 the skies had darkened, the air was cooler, and a storm approached. By 6:00 we had all eaten, the wind was gusty, the large pecan trees were blowing, and drops began to fall.
And just like last year's picnic, in minutes everyone waved their good-byes, dashed to their cars, and headed home before the storm hit! Hopefully next year, we will find a rain-free day for our church picnic on the farm! Thanks to all who came; it was a delightful time.

Cricket's 100th Birthday Party!

 Mrs. Cricket has been a member of Pamlico Presbyterian Church since its very beginning. She's been so instrumental in supporting the church, working hard for the church, and faithfully attending the church. We wish her a very happy birthday this month, and wanted to throw her a big party!
 

We had lots of balloons, flowers, a big sheet cake (coconut, of course, her favorite!), banners -- now, to see who will come!

LOTS of people came to wish Cricket a happy birthday!
 Our fellowship hall was full to bursting, and three tables were full of casseroles and other delicious dishes.

 We are so happy to have such a wonderful woman in our church.
Many blessings on you in the years ahead, Mrs. Cricket! You are certainly a blessing to us.

No Services on Jan. 8th

Pamlico Presbyterian Church has cancelled services on Sunday, Jan. 8 due to winter weather conditions.

Please note that our fellowship supper, scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 14, is still on the calendar, and is a special event because we will celebrate Cricket Draughon's 100th birthday as well! Please come celebrate with us, bring a side wish to share with everyone, and wish Mrs. Cricket a very happy century of life!
