On Jan. 21, 2006, brethren in Charlotte, North Carolina, celebrated the congregation's 10th anniversary. Afternoon services were followed by a potluck supper. The centerpiece of the desserts was a cake with the UCG seal.
An evening of reminiscing was led by our pastor, David Mills, who began the Charlotte congregation as an extension of the Asheboro congregation, which started the previous spring. Members were invited to share their comments about the growth of the congregation. Everyone agreed that friendliness, unity and working together are strengths developed by the Charlotte church over the past 10 years.
Accompanist Helen Meek was presented with a crystal piano-shaped music box as a token of appreciation for her service to the congregation. A slide show and picture albums were also displayed, showing events of the past 10 years. Everyone took lots of pictures to share as we look forward to our next anniversary celebration!
