Palm Sunday 2015

 

We gathered in the Parish Hall with readings. Monyue Bright sang a solo
about Jerusalem. Then we paraded from the Parish Hall to the
Christian Education Building led by a donkey named "Angie"
with Karter Hines astride her. Angie and Karter continued into
the CEB, into the Nave to the chancel and then out the west door.
Palm crosses were distributed as well as palm fronds to each attendee.
 
Instead of the adults, the youth of the parish did the Palm Sunday
readings. It was refreshing and they were well-rehearsed - Marcia Davis

The donkey's name is Angie, the handler is Jill Courtney and the rider is Karter Hines.

Grace, Ponca City, Celebrates 70th Anniversary of Epiphany Pageant

(From the Diocesan Newsletter of January 23, 2015)

 

January 6, 2015 marked the 70th Anniversary of the Epiphany Pageant and Reception at Grace Episcopal Church, Ponca City.

The Pageant, with the children dressed in authentic costume, included the Nativity Pageant, Apostolic Succession and the Festival of Lights.

 

The guests, holding lighted candles, exited the church singing "Onward Christian Soldiers" symbolically ready to spread the Word of Christ into the world.  The Epiphany Reception always includes a cake with a special ring in it. The person receiving the cake with the ring is the king or queen for the year. Last year's king, Winston Henry not only had a special Epiphany cake, but also baked and decorated his specialty, three cheesecakes, to the delight of the 100+ guests in attendance.

 

Since this year was the 70th Anniversary, we honored the former kings and queens that were present. Each received a gold paper

crown, decorated with colorful beads. Finally, the ring was discovered in a piece of cake by Marcia Davis, the new Queen of Epiphany.

 


The former kings and queens in the photograph are:

Back row:

Winston Henry, Warren Dick, Larry Buck, Jim Emig, Queen Marcia Davis, Laurie Hines, Judy McGuire, Marsha Moore, Richard  Winterrowd 

Front row:

Pam Belzer, Sharla Lambring, Emma Bartley, Jackie Saylor, Yvonne Holmes, Joan Dick

EYC treated to a progressive dinner several Sundays ago.  Hustons had hors d'oeuvres; we had salad (pictured); Holmes had spaghetti and Howards had dessert.  This is a great bunch of well-mannered kids who have much respect for the older members.  The conversation was lively and interesting.  Fun time had by all, including the adults! -

Sunday, April 24, 2005 - the EYC gave a mystery presentation along with an Italian dinner as a fund raiser for their upcoming trip to San Antonio this summer.  This is just one of many fund raisers.  May 15 will be chili dogs and Bingo.

Some church members donated fancy desserts.  Each table submitted donations to EYC.  The table with the highest amount was able to select the dessert of its choice.  Pictured is my toffee/almond cheesecake. - Marcia Davis
