109th Church Birthday
Our “Sometimes Annual” Church Birthday and Talent Show held January 28 after worship was the kick-off fellowship event of 2017. Everyone enjoyed a “No Fuss, No Muss” meal of delicious finger food followed by singing “Happy Birthday”, and eating birthday cupcakes. The talent show line-up, emceed by Rachel Bunton opened with everyone singing that favorite old hymn “Send the Light”, but not before Wally Bunton read the humorous poem, “Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow” removing his hat to reveal the top of his head as he read the closing line. Ofelia Martinez played host to a popular game show, “Bible Trivia”. The panel included Lizzie & Soli Carreon, Pepito, Joaquin & Rosie Martinez. Volunteers from the audience, Pepe Martinez and Mary Bunton bragged that they could beat the kids. To show how wrong they were here is an example: Question, “What are the first three words in the Bible?” The kids answered correctly, “In the beginning,” while both adults answered “Once upon a time”. Well, duh . . . that’s 4 words! Jerry Boutelle sang a beautiful solo, “Does Jesus Care?” and Mary told jokes about Ofelia. Rachel and Betty Carter rendered an impromptu duet, “It is Well with My Soul” then the show ended with everyone singing “I’ll Fly Away.”
