Worship and Fun Fellowship with our Church Family!

Last night was our church's annual Christmas "Talents" Program.
It's a special time of gathering with our church family and neighbors to worship our Lord
and fellowship together.
The vision is one of giving back,
and sharing the abilities and gifts
that have been given to us by the Lord,
to bring Him glory, and to be able to share His love and truth with others.
We pray that the theme of this year's program,  "Treasuring Jesus,"
was accomplished,
and that all who came to the program were very blessed!
Ted kicks it off with a welcome and introduction.

Then, Kyle opens with a prayer and the introduction to this year's "in-between-acts" quiz competition between the two sides of the congregation . . . Team 1 and Team 2.
This year's theme was "Christmas Carols!"
Kyle did a great job preparing this portion of the program
 and being the "M.C." for the evening.  
Here's one of the first questions . . . 
"The slightly demanding carolers in
"We Wish You a Merry Christmas"
wouldn't go until they got some . . . "
Caroline accompanied Steve for this recitation.

"It is the "Most Wonderful Time of the Year." 
What is everyone telling you?
This is a choir that comes together from our church
and two other small, local churches. 
They are always really awesome!
Finish this line from "Winter Wonderland,"
"Later on we'll conspire, as we . . . " 

Valerie's "talent" that she contributed for the intermission!
In "Do You Hear What I Hear,"
what are the shepherd's words to the mighty king?
 Bowes/Tevis ladies and their daddy leading the congregation in
"O Come All Ye Faithful" just after the intermission.   

Finish this line from "Deck the Halls."
"Follow me in merry measure . . . "

"SVCC Hillibillies" singing about being "fishers of men"
to the tune of "Beverely Hillbillies"
being played on the banjo!
In the song "Let it Snow" what does the singer bring?

This was one of my favorites for a couple reasons.
1.  We helped him pull off his performance as a surprise for his mom . . .even printing a separate program just for her with his name and song omitted, so she had no idea that he was going to sing!
2.  He had an amazing voice, and sung "O Holy Night" beautifully . . .
at the young age of 16! 

One of the trickiest questions . . .
"In the song 'Twelve Days of Christmas' what does the 'true love' give on the third day of Christmas?"

Victoria and Valerie playing an "Amazing Grace" duet
for Steve's "The Old Violin" recitation. 
After all the acts were complete, our dear brother Gale did an awesome job summarizing the evening with a call for each of us to consider if we have received Jesus' free gift
of grace and salvation this Christmas season,
and "made room" for Him by surrendering our lives to His Lordship every day of the year!

So who can answer all the quizzes? Anyone want to give it a shot (come on, I dare you!)?
