Welcoming our Newest Members and Children's Christmas Party

Today was a special church service as we welcomed two of our young people as members of the church.
After completing Confirmation Classes,
Matthew Retzer and Mayghen Retzer
joined Henderson United Methodist Church.
We welcome our two newest members.

Pastor Ray requests Matthew and Mayghen to come forward.

Confirmands come forward along with their mother  to light their Baptismal Candles.

The children gathered to sing Christmas Carols before going to the Mission Hall for the Christmas Party.
We all went to the Mission Hall where the children played games and had sandwiches and snacks.
Matthew and Mayghen were honored with a cake and gifts for their commitment.
Children were allowed to choose a hand-made wooden toy from under the tree.
Those that did not receive their gifts yesterday were able to get them today.
Children had a wonderful time and wished everyone a Merry Christmas.
