Our new Pride flag, ready to be sent up the flagpole
The communion table
Roxane, our "Chancel Empress", prepares it all with love!
The Pentecost flame is lit,
All is prepared for worship
Ollie is looking quite jaunty today!
The Bethan Quartet, assisted by Fred and George, open worship
Singing Amy Grant's "Say Once More"
Kathryn and Annanda look on
Kathryn welcomes us all to worship
Bonnie leads the liturgy
Todd holds forth at the organ
We are a singing congregation!
George and Dave too (they're in the back)
Our wonderful guest, Annanda Barklay
Annanda was engaging,
The choir gathers at the chancel to sing
It is always a joy to hear
the "best little church choir in the west"!
Paul listens intently
Craig presents another beautiful musical offering
We affirm our faith
Andy at announcement time
The Henrys, Ken and Roberta, escort the flag outside
The march to the flagpole!
Ken prepares the halyard
There he is. Now we can start!
Melinda, Freda, Roberta, Kathryn and Andy:
The original Welcoming Church Task Force
And so we set to raising the flag
This group always has worked well together
Here we go...
and it's flying! Proudly!
I'm not crying, YOU'RE crying!
Our congregation is very happy,
from the charter member (front and center) to the newest visitor,
to be a loving, welcoming and affirming,
MORE LIGHT congregation!
Making sure everything is ship-shape
Celebrating diversity, every Sunday at 10
Whoever you are, you are welcome at Bethany!
