GROUP TRAVELS TO CANADA!

During the summer of 1999, our Sanctuary Choir enjoyed a trip to Ontario, Canada. There was plenty of sighseeing around Niagara Falls, before traveling to Mississauga (near Toronto) to sing at Faith Baptist Church on Sunday. The church is one of few Southern Baptist churches in the area, and we enjoyed worshiping with our brothers and sisters in Christ. A great time was had by all. See "Happenings Page" to see first two pictures. 1 - a group gathers outside rooms to discuss more plans! 2 - Falls from Skylon Tower. 3 - Breakfast at CLT airport. 4 - Wally and pastor or Grace B.C. 5 - "Behind the Falls" 6 - Small group near Canada Niagara Falls.
