Recommitment was a family affair at Lauderhill Church as 32 couples, dressed in formal suits and flowing gowns, renewed their vows on a beautiful Sabbath day. Lovely bridesmaids, charming groomsmen, beautiful flower girls, and rambunctious Bible bearers truly made this a Recommitment Ceremony with the church family serving as witnesses.
It was awe-inspiring to witness the grooms line the span of the altar to behold their brides coming down the aisle into the arms of their beloved, to observe couples looking into each other’s eyes while promising, with conviction, to be true, to be faithful, to be committed to each other, and to live a life of dedication to their God. Pastor Lester Elliott presented the homily, charge, prayer, vows, admonition, encouragement, counsel, and challenges. Prior to this high day, he conducted pre-ceremony marital workshops where he counseled the couples how to stay together in love and how to show Christ to each other in the marriage. An afterglow workshop followed to help keep the love flame burning.
The reception following the Recommitment Ceremony brought Sabbath rejoicing and caused many to say, “This is heavenly.”
Couples ended a perfect day at sunset, sailing off into the Intercoastal Waterway, hand in hand, happily thanking the Lord for this renewed commitment to be closer to Him and to their beloved.

About Us

The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored ministry open to all families of children in grades 1-4. Our mission is to support parents and caregivers in leading and encouraging their children in a growing, joyful love relationship with Jesus Christ.
The first few years of a child’s life sets the stage for their future.  For parents/families of pre-K through fourth grade children, our Adventurer Clubs provide a safe place to encourage the development of the necessary social and interpersonal skills they need, in an environment that promotes Christian values and responsibilities.
Families will learn a variety of topics together, from character building, nature, hobbies, safety, and much more. This club also has parenting tips and resources through the family network and is designed to help you be the best parent/caregiver you can be as you partner with your child and other families to grow your kids to be the best they can be. Most clubs meet twice a month.
