Caption: We are one lucky church because we have an in-house chef! John
Prinzivalli is our master cook and he is well-liked by all. Sunday, June 9th
was our Dedication Sunday. It also happened to be John’s birthday. John
proved he is as good a person as he is a cook. He spent a number of hours
in the kitchen preparing a delicious Beef Stroganoff dinner for us. Needless
to say, we were more than willing and happy to be singing our “Happy
Birthday” praises for, and wishes to, him.
