July 4th Celebration at ILC

This past Fourth of July, ILC was ablaze but with festivity, not fire, as over 200 people gathered for a memorable celebration. Amidst an abundance of food and the company of friends and family, everyone had a splendid evening.

A highlight of the event was the bike parade, which saw around 20 young participants taking part. Decked out in patriotic apparel, streamers, flags, lights, and more, the parade was a colorful spectacle. The top three winners were awarded gift cards to the coffee shop, and every participant received a gift. Special thanks to Jennifer Booker for making this happen.

As dusk approached, Sis Kacey Lynn stirred hearts with her rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner, marking the start of the fireworks. While the church’s display adhered to local regulations (you can read that as “emitted showers of sparks”), the night sky around us exploded with patriotic fervor as the less law abiding citizens celebrated with gusto.

It was truly a fantastic evening enjoyed by all. If you haven’t yet attended one of these gatherings, we invite you to join us next time. It’s not only a great way to celebrate but also a wonderful opportunity to connect with others in the church.
