There was a lot going on at St. Nicholas this past weekend. Luckily, we had some cameras handy and captured some shots.

First, on Thursday evening, Sheila Dixon invited folks over to her house for a delicious dinner and some Lobsterfest preparations. The group made hand fans to hand out at Lobsterfest in case it gets hot, which is has the last few years. It was a great group who engaged in some great conversation as they worked. Many hands make short work, so before we knew it, we were done! Another group wrapped silverware on Saturday at the church, but we didn’t get any pictures of them. There has been a lot of hard work that has gone into Lobsterfest, and one of the best things is the new friendships that have been made! Thanks to Lynn Hall for these pictures, and for everyone who came out to work on the fans and the silverware.

Then, on Sunday, we dedicated a new (used) clavinova, or digital piano that was donated to St. Nicholas, and commissioned our choir members for ministry. Our music program has been going great guns since Sam Roney has been with us, and these are just some of the fruits of the choir’s ministry. We are so thankful for the gift of the clavinova and the ministry of the choir! Thanks again to Lynn Hall for these pictures.

Finally, on Sunday afternoon, the youth of St. Nicholas took a trip to Providence Canyon for a hike. Thanks to the leadership of our new youth intern, Cami Fanning, and Chris Lintner who suggested the hike, we had an awesome time exploring the canyon, climbing up high hills, and getting plenty dirty! It was really hot, but no one seemed to mind too much. We started with a trip to Blimpie for lunch and ended with a time of reflection about God’s creation. It was an awesome day! Cami took these shots.
