Welcome Owen

Very busy Sunday this week.  To begin we had special musical guests, Raven Baroque.  They played the prelude, offertory and postlude as well as accompanying the hymns.  Thanks to Larry for arranging this, and thanks to the members of the group for gracing our service.

   Announcement time featured those celebrating birthdays and anniversaries in August.  Among our couples there is a 60th anniversary coming up this week and a 64th anniversary. Congratulations to you and to everyone else with a special day in the month of August.

   But, the highlight of the service was the baptism of Owen Robert Arthur, the newest member of our fellowship. 
Owen and his parents and siblings travelled all the way from Belgium to share this important occasion at Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.  

The congregation welcomed Owen with prayer and hymns and many smiles. 

  We ended the morning with cake.  I've come to believe the hallmark of our congregation is cake, we have it  for birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, homecomings and good weather (or bad weather).  We just like cake.

Altogether a joyful, meaningful, holy Sunday morning.
