Golden Valley Christian Church



            What joy it would be to have an Easter attendance every Sunday of the year!  Last Sunday was a day of true celebration and blessings.  The day started with a well-attended breakfast, cooked by the men of our church.  We found that there are some really good men cooks in the church, and the ladies relished the idea of being waited upon.  After breakfast, it was time for the energetic youngsters to participate in the egg hunt.  A few of our regular members were unable to be part of our Easter Sunday, due to illness, or because they were worshipping with family members elsewhere, and each one of them was truly missed.


            Our morning service was a mixture of events that was a joy to everyone.  During Bro. Tim's intervals, recounting the resurrection story, the children of the church, and some adults, helped in this glorious celebration.  Alyssa Tucker played a piano solo.  Atticus Jones, Sarah and Jake Mendenhall, and Alyssa and Lauren Tucker did readings.  A delightful song, full of motions and enthusiastic singing, was performed by all of the previously named youngsters, plus Abrielle and Asa Jones, Sienna Raysik, and Olivia Tucker.  A ladies group (Paula Phillips, Georgia Randall, Rosanna Cross, and Laura Mendenhall) touched our hearts with the song, "Were You There?"  The men's group (Atticus, Austin, and Ken Jones, Tim Randall, and Chris Tucker) sang the very inspiring "The King is Coming," with both groups accompanied by Marla Jones on the piano.
