On Sunday, February 11th, 2018, after the church service, the church hosted a Valentine's Day Covered Dish Luncheon. Food, drink, and desserts were supplied for all participants. To make it more interesting, couple's wedding photos were provided and guests were asked to identify each one if they could. This was a lot of fun for everyone.
