"Worship In The Park"
Celebrating The Holly Presbyterian Church’s 157th Birthday
Sunday, July 3, 2016

The Holly Presbyterian Church’s congregation gathered at Lakeside Park in Holly on Sunday, July 3rd, to celebrate the church’s 157th birthday with the annual “Worship in the Park” worship service and picnic.  The weather was "severe clear," with warm temperatures and clear blue sky, a beautiful summer's day.

Rev. Dr. Sharlyn DeHaven Gates conducted the worship service, assisted by Associate Pastor Shaun Hardimon; Elder Jim Lyles and Deacon Vicki Lyles led the singing. Rev. Gates’ sermon was entitled "In Dependence," based on Luke 10:1-11 and 16-20.”

After the service, everyone enjoyed a potluck picnic with hot dogs, provided by the Fellowship Team, and the usual wealth of dishes brought by members of the congregation. Everyone had a wonderful time of fellowship.
