Cedars Sponsor New Members Banquet

For the second time this year the Cedars of Lebanon showed up and showed out. They hosted our second New Members Banquet of 2018. It was an amazing time of great food, great fellowship and genuine encouragement.  I know our New Brothers and Sisters felt extremely welcomed for by such a show of class and servitude.    They had a chance to meet and fellowship with the Church Leadership team while hearing about the history of Gods movement in the ICOC. It was a fun filled evening had by all.

Thanks to the Cedars of Lebanon for your hearts to continually serve and give to Gods people. You are appreciated.
