Saturday, December 2 the new Fellowship Hall was filled again with the St. Luke's BMOC (Being Men Of Christ) / St. Luke's Preschool annual Christmas dinner and auction. This event was attended by 175. It included a fantastic steak dinner prepared by the Hog Heaven team and served by preschool teachers. The Fellowship Hall was used again on Saturday, December 9 to host more than 200 neighborhood parents and kids at A Night In Bethlehem. This featured a reconstructed Bethlehem market place with pottery to make, bread to bake and many other activities for children. Most importantly there was the manger with live animals - including a camel, and it all pointed to the coming of Jesus our savior.
It has been a very blessed beginning of uses of our new Fellowship Hall to spread the good news of our Savior. Thank you so much for your patience with all the construction during this past three years. Thank you to so many that put sweat equity into this work. And thank you to all who donated so generously. There will still be a construction loan to finish paying off, but as we pay that loan down we are so blessed with a total campus that is ready for the next 50 years.
