Each year our church honors ministry volunteers with a special "theme" banquet. This year's theme? The 1980s!!! Tim and I were especially excited about it, but pulling our costumes together proved to be just a bit daunting - so many fun styles to choose from! Here's our final look:
I am "Susan" from the movie "Desperately Seeking Susan" (appropriate, huh?); Tim is Lloyd Dobler from "Say Anything." (Now you may have to watch these 80s flicks to remember...)
The highlight of the evening is the entertainment, provided by our staff and elders. They do an amazing job, and this year was no exception. From the opening performance of "Thriller" to the Student Ministries spoof of "Let's Get Physical" (retitled "Let's Get Spiritual) to the elders' live finale of Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer," it was a great night.
Did you notice Bon Jovi's bass player on the right? Yep. That's Tim rockin' the house.
If I've never said it on our blog, let me say it here: I love our church, and I am so thankful we have a church where we can worship together, study together, and have fun together. Now we are all left wondering how our staff will possibly top this night.
