Sock Hop Slumber Party!

Here are a few pictures from the big church sock hop!  You can see how Lydia's saddle shoes and my pink ladies jacket look with the rest of our outfits.
We had a big group of kids and they all had a lot of fun dressing up for the 1950's theme.
There was a hoola hoop contest, several twister games, and a limbo contest.  
The Cool Tones performed a concert in the sanctuary and it didn't take long before everyone was dancing in the aisles!
When we got tired of dancing, my group of Lydia and two little friends headed downstairs to spend the night as overnight hosts for the Family Promise program.  It is a program that operates in several cities and makes arrangements for situational homeless families to spend a week sleeping in bedrooms set up in churches.  It is a WONDERFUL program that gets great results and costs way less then shelters.  We have met some wonderful people through the program and are so grateful to be able to serve our community in this manner.
