The Lyle United Methodist Church's "Homecoming and Gospel Celebration" had music bouncing off the walls and floating on the wind. Last Sunday, the congregation opened its doors to share its joy in the renovations of the fellowship hall. Several local talented singers and musicians joined the festivities, which encouraged a lot of foot tapping, and background rhythmic clapping from the occupants of the filled pews. The intermission of the celebration found the congregation sharing a catered luncheon. Great music, great food, great fellowship, great day!
