Finale to Family Night, fall 2014

The stage was packed with gifts for the Salvation Army’s children.  Mrs. Gayle’s handmade Christmas ornaments adorned the tree.  The food was delicious.  The fellowship was warm and inviting.

The end of Family Night in the fall also marks the time for the Children and Youth to perform their music.  As usual,  the Children and the Youth, led by their respective Musical Conductors, did an outstanding job!

Take note of the last picture in this slideshow: you will view an up and coming member of the Children’s Choir dancing in the aisle.  This Family Night was truly a uplifting gateway  for the Christmas season!

Family Night, part 2. Fall 2014

Family night’s program for the 2014 kickoff was a showcase of four musically talented FBC members:  Paul, Brannon, Brian and Alan.  Teacher and students.  Bass guitar, lead and rhythm guitars, drums, saxophone with each musician displaying multiple instrument talents.

The songlist was that of vintage, easy listening, rock n roll:  James Taylor, The Byrds, Van Morrison, and The Beatles just to name a few.

See the photo recap below.

Well done FBC!  Welcome Back!  And if you weren’t there, we missed you!
