Mother's Day Banquet
The theme for the 2008 Mother's Day Banquet was "What Not to Wear." Debbie Youngbar was guest speaker. The ladies enjoyed delicious food prepared and served by the men of Christ Community and were entertained by the youth with skits and were serenaded by the men of Christ Community.
Family Fun Weekend
Members of Christ Community had a great time at Cowans Gap State Park in July - good food, games, swimming, corn roast, ice cream, camping, a camp fire, and great fellowship. The AFLBS Barnabas Team provided puppet shows and shared their faith with others.
Vacation Bible School
Every Sunday during August kids attended "Outrigger Island" Vacation Bible School at Christ Community. "Outrigger Island" was based on Psalm 86:11 ("Teach me Your way, Lord, and I will live by Your truth”) and helped kids develop the stability they need to face a world of shifting sands and wavering opinions. Kids learned to know, speak and live God’s truth - aloha style!
