The Reformation Day Faire 2010


This past weekend my family was thrilled to visit Providence Church once again for their annual Reformation Day Faire. It is a glorious time to learn about the Reformation and hear great speakers teach about reformers who had come before us. This years compelling speakers included Kevin Swanson (pictured above), Marcus Serven and James MacDonald. They all did an excellent job at teaching and sharing the roots and why the Reformation needs to continue.

The two day event highlighted two music concerts by Charlie Zahm, Towne Square, Highland Games, Boffer Wars, Dinner, vendor halls and a Historic Ball.
Here are some pictures:


Here we are on the left--Steve and I, with our sweet friends, Susie and Tony Shock. Notice my dress? That, my friends, is the handiwork of my talented 12 year old daughter Naomi. She made it just in three days and then after that made herself one! I was honored to wear her first costume ever!



A close up!

We stayed with the wonderfully loving Bandy family--the father is a deacon of the church there. I must say--they are the kindest and most hospitable church that I know of and the food they served was simply AMAZING! I'm telling you, I would love to become a member Providence Church just for all the yummy homemade food that they whip up! :) But I honestly can't begin to tell you how I love this church and the people there--so kind, welcoming, hard working and a close knit community with excellent teaching. What else could one ask for?


My boys and their friends just could not wait to begin the boffer wars so they began practicing in the parking lot with their good friend, Zeke!


Here are the boys outside lined up for battle---the boffer wars are a great fun, it's my favorite part of all the events and I love witnessing the boys attacking one another.


Here is some video of the Historic Ball--you might recognize a few faces!

Everyone had a grand time as you can see!

And here is a clip of Charlie Zahm in concert:

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my weekend at the Reformation Day Faire!

  3. What enjoyment! And what talent your daughter has!! You must be so proud! There is actually a need for costume makers for local Drama clubs and highschools! I sewed some costumes for a local rendition of Hansel and Gretel once! I have heard some other sermons from Kevein Swansen (speling?) too and he always hit's it right on!
