CHURCH SOFTBALL RUNNER UP
The Holy Light Softball Team was the runner up in the Softball playoffs losing the championship game to Brentwood Presbyterian 10-5.
At our Men’s Fellowship Meeting on the 24th Deacon Sanders brought the word and then after that and the breaking of bread we had our first Domino Tournament. Brother Tommy Saxon came away with the championship defeating Deacon Rodney Weber! I know the men are looking forward to take the crown away from Brother Saxon. I am looking to redeem myself as well after a first round elimination.
