Magical Nights of Lights at Lake Lanier
Mt. Calvary members enjoyed a night of fun and fellowship as they toured the dazzling display of Christmas lights at Lake Lanier. The “Twelve Days of Christmas” and “Teddy Bear Land” were just two of the many displays we saw. Many enjoyed hot chocolate, giant cookies, rides, snow ball fights, sliding down snow mountain and roasted marsh mellows. Pastor Stowers stated how important it was for members to enjoy and value fellowship with one another just as we enjoy and value fellowship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
