August 23, 2015- Church Picnic  [Return to gallery]

After a rainy morning the clouds broke and the sun came peeking through for a fun filled afternoon. With help from our amazing team of parishioner volunteers the afternoon was a big success. The church offered burgers and hot dogs, and with the generosity of our parishioners who donated chips and sweets. The afternoon was filled with laughter, fun games for the kids and even a demonstration on stranger danger from the Bartlett National Karate & Kickboxing School. What better way to celebrate a church family than with an exciting picnic.
