30th Anniversary of Church Charter
On November 2nd we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the founding of Shallowford Presbyterian Church. It will be an exciting time! We were delighted to have our founding pastor, David Partington, conducting worship that Sunday. There was special music from the great hymns of the church to a taste of jazz. Several former and guest singers joined the Shallowford Singers singing anthems that have marked our beginning and our anniversaries as well as some new sounds. Sally Ann Morris, Shallowford's "own" composer of wonderful hymns and anthems was with us, as well as special guests vocalist Martha Bassett, bass player Patrick Lawrence, and drummer John Wilson. And of course enjoyed the gifts of our own Dave Reid and youth instrumentalists, Kate Watkins, Sarah Watkins Grace Anne Marvell, and others! And if that is not enough--- a lovely lunch was enjoyed following worship. It was a wonderful time to enjoy each other, remember our history and to look forward to God’s working in our future.
