Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was a relaxing day for us. We enjoyed time with Cindy's brother, Gary, and also attended some wonderful services at at College Church throughout the day. The Christmas Eve service at church is family-oriented with lots of singing, a story for the children told by one of our pastors, and a Christmas message from Pastor Kent Hughes. Every year we take a family picture by the Christmas trees in the sanctuary.

The next two photos were taken by Adam at the 11 p.m. Candlelight Christmas Eve service that he was able to attend. Even at the late hour, College Church was packed! This first photo is of our pastoral staff at College Church. We are blessed to have such Godly men serving this church and its people.

And this photo is of Pastor Kent and Barbara Hughes. Kent has served as senior pastor at College Church for 27 years, and has just retired from this ministry and will be moving to Spokane, Washington to begin some new ministry opportunities. He will be greatly missed!

Great pictures, all three! We think that only Adam could have gotten the entire staff to stand still that long! It must have been a sentimental evening.

Really nice pictures! Would you mind if I copied the last two onto my blog as well? Many of Jonathan's friends would love to see him in a Geneva gown! I thought I should ask permission first:)

Christine, please feel free to use those pictures. I'll also be getting 5x7s printed for all the pastors.

Thanks, Adam! And it will mean so much to the pastors to receive those photos as well.
