New Years Eve

Olie bollen

and Appel Flappen

 Olga did the sermon 

We were all proud of her

1 Sing to the LORD a new song;
   sing to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Sing to the LORD, praise his name;
   proclaim his salvation day after day.
3 Declare his glory among the nations,
   his marvelous deeds among all peoples. Psalm 96

Youth Relay

 A game to see who would be fastest

 Jr. or Sr. youth
