The Sunday before Labor Day is always T-shirt Sunday at church.  The congregation gets together and wears our church T-shirt.  It is to show the unity of the body of Christ.

It started about 6 or 7 years ago when we first got our T-shirts.  They were blue then with a different logo. We got them right before Labor Day and that weekend a lot of us wore them (me and Joe included).  We all laughed about the church "uniform".  However it gave Pastor Wayne (who was our pastor then) the idea to make it a yearly thing.  So the following year he announced it was T-shirt Sunday and to wear your shirt the next Sunday.  Just about everyone did.  So much fun!

We have a new version of the shirts now.  They are black with a new logo and our website on the back.  I took lots of pictures at church today.  Here are some of them.

This is Krystal at Coffee Hour before church.  She has the greatest smile and laugh.  We just love her so much.

Peter and Dottie.  Peter is the perfect gentleman.  I love to talk with him.  Dottie is 90 years old and kicking.  She is in the Tuesday morning Bible study I lead.

Jon is our Deacon and Worship Leader.  What a wonderful musician he is.

Caity with her handsome sons Keaven (left) and Jon (right).

Jim and Patrick

During worship time:  Pastor Justin, Jon and Caity.

Joe was the Elder "du jour" today.  He led the prayer and scripture reading.  He gave a mini sermon before the prayer that was so inspiring.  He told me that the Holy Spirit just laid it on his heart what to say.  He challenged us to live for Christ and tell others about Him.

The congregational singing.  See all the black shirts?

Fellowship time after the service.  Here's Caity and Peter talking.

Joe talking with Jim and the other Joe.

As usual Miss A was the center of attention.  Here she is with her mom, Jim and Carol.

Joe talking with Rich.  Patrick and Jon are in the background.

Pastor Justin took this picture of Joe and me for us.
 Of course I had to get pictures of Miss Aurora.  She is such a cutie!

It was a fun day and I'm glad that Joe recovered enough to be a part of it.  He says his back is much better.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, go back and read how we spent the day in the Emergency Room yesterday.

Tomorrow is September 1 and I have a wonderful day planned.  Can't wait to show you.



  1. Honey, I am so happy to see Joe up and at service!! What a wonderful uplifting posts!! Blessings on you and yours as you celebrate September first!!!

  2. So thrilled to see Joe was well enough to go to service ...and speak! It was cool seeing everyone in the
    tee shirts. I like the concept of unity.
    Can't believe another month is passing....though I look forward to the changing colors. God has the most remarkable pallet of colors! Such awesome shades!
    Have a great day off!

  3. A nice service and nice tradition. Happy September 1st.

  4. I am back around blogland and wanted to pop in to say Hello. Love all your church pictures and those two handsome boys look enough alike to be twins! What a cutie that sweet baby is, too.

    Have a Happy Labor Day. Glad you hubby is doing okay! xo Diana
