Our Good Friday in photos...

We had a wonderfully blessed Good Friday. It was a beautiful day with our church community. What a blessing to celebrate that Christ Jesus our Lord died for us...for poor, miserable sinners. We tried to use this event to encourage our members to invite their family and friends to join us for this service. And some did which was wonderful to see. May God use his Word to change unrepentant hearts!

Here's a run down of our day in photos -

First we arrive at church after filling our cars to the max with people who live near us. Shiana makes a mad dash to find Louisa (she does every time we are at church, and then her and Kirilee spend the rest of the day arguing about who's turn it is to hold her and who's held her for the longest!). Here she is carting her around church...

Before church official starts we spend lots of time singing. Here are two of our very capable guitarists, Jason and Monica....


Among the singing I use the opportunity to shake hands and every now and then snap a few pics. And this gorgeous Louisa is just such a good candidate for gorgeous photos...


Then follows the beautiful service. Ian preached a powerful sermon on our need to truly repent and confess Jesus as Lord of our lives, and to live our lives in His grace. After church we had a special program where different groups performed various items. The Sunday school children performed two songs with actions....
And if you look carefully on the photo below you will see little Ashlyn hiding at the back with her big sister (who you can't actually see, but she is there), working hard on the actions...
Even our Women's Bible Study group sung a song.... You are my All in All....


Ashlyn sat on the floor with her friends "enjoying" the entertainment....

Some were just overwhelmed with boredom and decided to find their own fun on the grass...

This young boy, Hansley, was just content hanging on someone's arm....
And after every good program comes a very important element - food! We had donuts, flour balls and cakes and cordial. Here is Augustina enjoying every moment of her flour ball....


And this sweet lady, Marta, was only to happy to let me get a close up of what she was enjoying...

That was our blessed Good Friday in photos (and a few words....). We pray yours was blessed too!

hi Nat,
gorgeous photos. I love your barefeet amongst everyone else's footwear for church! Maybe you're getting more PNG than they are. :)
