華人新年 Chinese New Year

Every year, our church comes together to celebrate Chinese New Year.  We rang in the new year with a celebration of songs, traditional folk dances, skits, music from our hand bell choir and a guitar ensemble.  There was even a demonstration of martial arts forms.

The evening began with an introduction of our faithful church staff, who serve us tirelessly throughout the year.

 
 
Then, we were treated to some great musical entertainment by our hand bell choir.
 
   
 
We enjoyed a great performance by a men's guitar ensemble and dances in colorful costumes from our youth.
 
   
 
More dances and then suddenly, a 'flash mob' appeared!
 
   
 
A demonstration of martial arts form and a skit by our young professionals group.
 
   
 
We all had a good time showing off our jump rope skills!
 
   
 
Some of our older audience members showed they could jump as well as the youth and then some lovely ladies performed a dance for us.
