It is hard to believe we are already at the letter " P " for ABC
I have entitled the first PICTURE 
I'm sure the coyote was PANTING after being chased by those POWERFUL rabbits.
They were running PARALLEL to the road.
I thought this was rather (P)UNNY.

We had a very exciting weekend at our Church.
It was called Celebration Weekend.
Our Food Team from Mexico made thousands of PANCAKES to feed the hungry masses.
The fragrance PERMEATED the air.
I was so happy I could help PREPARE and serve these to the
PEOPLE attending the four services Sunday morning.

This is why we were celebrating.
The church has a PASSION for Compassion.
All the kids from each service collected PENNIES and lots of money
for the last 6 weeks.
You can see all the " PIGGY " banks displayed.
All the money raised by the kids and our contributions as adults will
come to well over 2 million dollars!
Our church isn't keeping one cent of the money.
It is all going to specific Local charities and several PROJECTS overseas.

Our Church is definitely not a stick in the mud type of church.
At the kickoff for our big conference last year you can see the
The last three PICTURES were taken by my son who is the co-head
of the Bayside Church PHOTOGRAPHY team.
PLEASE remember to enlarge the PHOTOS to see the detail.

God's blessings on all of you and your church family. fantastic! and i love the Punny Bunny and after enlarging i wonder if something much bigger than the rabbit and the coyote is after both of them, it is a funny pic.

Ginny said...

Is that REALLY a coyote being chased by a hare? How very odd! I love your pictures, especially the Whatever It Takes one, and the one playing volleyball inside the church!! I have looked at the slide show twice now. What is the thing that looks like a horizontal ladder?

Hilary said...

What an amazing capture of the hares and the coyote. Unbelievable. I love the piggy banks in the Penultimate image and that last one is so colourful. That's such a good cause you have dedicated your time and efforts with. Thank you for that, Sue.

Wanda said...

Oh Sue, thank you for the tour.

I can't wait to hear about it in person on the beach at Tahoe...We have umbrella's so we won't burn up!

Our Vacation Bible School raises money for special causes each summer with the kids bringing as may nickels as they can earn throughout the week. A perfect way to help others less fortunate.

Hazel said...

Your post taught me something about animals - rabbits chasing a coyote - thought it was the other way around. I'm also amazed at how time flies. ABC Wednesday has become some sort of a calendar for me :)

The rabbits and coyote picture reminds me of the Killer Bunny Rabbit in the Monty Python movie.
