Ron Writes

Do You Remember This…? part 2

We started listing some of our 2015 highlights last week. What do you remember?

Two of our families had their first child. We welcomed Elayna Ann Reynolds (Feb. 3), and McCaslin Ann Ruddiman (Apr. 10).

We stayed true to God’s Word. Besides hearing Ron preach, we heard Dale Lange (Disaster Relief Fund), Josh Partlow, Jake Doberance, Nathan Shank, Steve Partlow, John Jones, Chad Murphy and Ben Cook.

In addition to ending a sermon series from 1 John, “Real Christianity,” Ron also had series on Philippians, “Joy Doing Hard Time,” “What Parenting has Taught Me about God (May) and Revelation, “Victory In Jesus.” Ron also spoke at Lakeside in Tacoma and Astoria.

We had adult Bible classes taught by Ben Headrick, Tony Headrick, Steve Partlow, Jim Bradshaw, Ron Murphy, Chad Murphy, Kim Swalwell, Scott Swalwell, David Headrick, Bret Martin and John Jones.

Teens had movie nights, service projects, Honors Dinner for church leaders, Camp Yamhill, rafting, youth rallies, TNT’s, hikes, corn maze, graduated two (Jon Martin and Emily Nickell) and probably a couple of things I have forgotten. Ladies did so many things together, so to name a few: Secret Sisters, bunko, fellowships, Retreat, baby and wedding showers, progressive dinner, Dinner Out and probably a few things I’ve overlooked.

The men had a leadership retreat (Mar. 13-14), followed up with a men’s breakfast (May). They also had communication nights and meetings with the elders.

Oops, I’m running out of room and I have more to remember. Let’s not forget about our new, beautiful parking lot and lights. TWO42s, 5th Sunday Singings, Tweens, ASBA, kickball, school supply give away, backpack buddies, ESL, adopt -a-family, parents’ night out, National Night Out (Eduardo), Camp Yamhill scholarships, Memorial Day picnic, singing at the rest home…. I’m out of space – did I mention your best memory of 2015? To God be the glory!!!
