Easter Sunday 2005

Your intrepid photographer missed the sunrise service at the Lakeshore attended by a few hardy souls on a beautiful, if cool, spring morning. Following the service they repaired to the church for sustenance.

The Easter family service was a joyful celebration of the Easter message, with music by Connie and a cast of thousands and a "Liturgical Dance" led by Michelle McKenzie and a few helpers, with the congregation joining in.

Following are a few group photos of the participants. The photos are pickable to see a larger version. To return here, pick Back on your browser.

The service began with the "By the Sea" chorus and Sunday School
singing a rousing rendition of "Alleluia" by Keithman & Horman.
(The rollicking musical "By the Sea" will be presented
at the morning service Sunday May 5,
and again the following Saturday, May 7 at 7 PM.)

Surrounding Connie at the piano, the youth choir sang
"I Will Sing, I Will Sing" from The Whole People of God.
Later they offered "Child of God" by Tom Walker.
