Charles Vernier’s interest in film and photography began at an early age, and his first official job as a photographer was documenting a trip to Peru in 2010. Over the course of the last few years, he has had numerous opportunities to shoot adventure expeditions, weddings, portraits, family pictures, and epic images of everyday life.
His experience shooting in the field has given him insight into how to photograph in difficult lighting situations, what makes a photo stand out, and how to work with what you have to achieve beautiful images. | www.charlesvernier.com





Spring Dance

Following ShopTime and Dinner will be an English Country Dance that includes line and circle dances to celtic and folk music. We will be teaching as we go for those that are unfamiliar with these dances.
example dances we will have:
  • Virginia Reel
  • Waves of Tory
  • Posties Jig
  • Gay Gordon
We’ll probably be adding in a new dance or two just for fun. It hasn’t been decided upon yet.

Guidelines for Dance:

Dancing is one of the areas we believe should be reclaimed and redefined according to biblical standards in contrast to what the world encourages and engages in. In an effort to do that, we have the following guidelines and reminders that we believe will help encourage a productive and edifying atmosphere for all.
1. This is a family dance. We encourage everyone of all ages to participate. In everything, but especially this area, we should strive to live according to 1 Tim 5:1-2: “Rebuke not an elder, but entreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren; The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.”
This is about the heart. Let’s seek to honor the Lord with our attitudes and actions.
2. Modest dress is required. Guys, there’s no need to dress up, but please don’t look sloven in appearance. Girls, though we encourage dresses, it’s not a must. Please be careful to choose something with a top that won’t gap when bending over and nothing immodestly tight.
3. Everyone must stay within the lighted areas after dark. We need to be above reproach and we have always observed this rule for everyones safety.
4. Above all, this is time of Rejoicing before the Lord.
“And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there.” — Deuteronomy 16:11
“Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.” — Psalms 32:11
