Annual Christmas Banquet Serves Up The Holiday Spirit
On Sunday, December 8, PFWUMC church family and friends gathered in the Agnes Thorne Room for the annual Christmas Banquet, a time-honored tradition that’s highly anticipated throughout the year. Sponsored by the church’s United Methodist Women, the banquet is an opportunity for congregants, their family and friends to come together in fellowship before the rush of Christmas travels.
Pastor Moore opened the banquet with prayer, after which everyone enjoyed a catered dinner plus an array of desserts. Then, attendees participated in a short sing-a-long of 12 Days of Christmas, Silent Night, and We Wish You A Merry Christmas. A few diners even perused the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, the UMW's seasonal gift shop filled with Christmas decorations and other hard-to-find treasures. All proceeds of the Shoppe go towards UMW Missions.
