Staff Christmas Party 2010

CLICK HERE to view pictures of the Staff Christmas Party.

On the evening of the calm before a major snowstorm, the staff of First Baptist Church & School were together for our annual Staff Christmas Party. On Friday, December 10, 2010, our staff met at the church at 5 p.m. Mr. Ohlemacher drove our newly-purchased bus to Old Country Buffet in West St. Paul where we had our own room.

While it was a busy evening at the restaurant, we did have a good time of fellowship and a variety of food was available from OBC. After eating, we loaded the bus and went straight up to St. Paul for a time of ice skating. During the time on the bus both Bro. Erik and Bro. Austen led in some games and led us in singing some Christmas songs.

St. Paul is a beautiful city, and especially during Christmastime. Many of the staff went ice skating right at Rice Park. There were skates available for rent. Many skated for about an hour. Pastor Clear was kind to stay with the bus the entire time since there was no immediate place to park in that area. We loaded the bus and then went back to the church.

We met in the Johnson Chapel for a time of devotion, but prior to that, Pastor Clear recognized the following staff members for their service to First Baptist:

  • Mrs. Murphy for 5 years of service!
  • Mr. Miranda for 10 years of service!
  • Mrs. McKay for 10 years of service!
  • Mrs. Foster for 15 years of service!
  • Mrs. Ohlemacher for 20 years of service!

Thank you to Mr. Ohlemacher and Pastor Clear for driving the bus. Thanks, Bro. Erik and Bro. Austen for helping us with the games. And, thank you, Pauline and Kim, for your help with the refreshments. Thanks, Pastor Clear, for your leadership and vision for our ministry.

What a privilege it is to serve the Lord Jesus Christ at First Baptist Church & School.

    It’s a great privilege to be a part of this staff and serve the Lord together at First Baptist School.
    As you can see in the pictures – there are alot of nuts around here, but we all love each other any way! haha.

    Thanks, Pastor Clear, for planning a wonderful time for your staff.
