A group of about 70 ministers and spouses from around the state gathered for the annual Christmas dinner at Mountain Park Church in early December. The group had some fun with the game Taylor Swift vs. Lamentations, and then a good time of worship. Wonderful family of faithful spiritual leaders in our state!
