Byerlys Good-bye

At our last church potluck dinner we honored the Byerlys with a going away "friendship garden" with all things needed to put in a new yard. They have taken a ranch position in Breckenridge. We will miss all their good works and talents....Tim with his quiet leadership, Beth with her carpentry and sound booth talents, and Andy with his morning worship help. We've seen Tim and Beth marry, seen the birth of Andy, and seen them grow in their faith since coming to Cross Plains. Our loss is Breckenridge's gain.

Church Grounds Work Day

Even though it rained 17 people showed up for the work day. These are some pictures that weren't in the FLAME, our church newsletter.

I promised that I would post photos to the blog that I don't have room for in the Flame.
This first photo is new members Robert and Therese Morgan posing with pastor John Woody.

I give up.
I have loaded 10 photos but they just disappear.
I will work on this later.
