What a day we had at this year’s picnic! Lots of delicious food (as always), a huge waterslide, some horseshoes, a softball game, and of course, lots of fellowship with our brothers and sisters at Bethesda. There were even a few new faces to be seen, including our brand new pastor, Reverend Jessica Terrell. I took a lot of pictures, so if you don’t see one of you here, check the slideshow on our picture page or go straight to our photostream on Flickr. Enjoy!
