Huntsville Botanical Garden Next Sunday

We'll leave the church at 1:30pm next Sunday and carpool down to Huntsville, Alabama to visit the Huntsville Botanical Garden.  The garden is open until 6pm.  All of the garden is an easy walk, although, if one were to walk the entire garden, it would entail quite of walking.  Handicap mobility is available on request.

Stone Door Hike Next Sunday

We're switching the hike we had originally planned next Sunday on the Shake Rag Trail in Sewanee.  We're going to the Stone Door overlooking Savage Gulf instead.  We're making this switch due to the fact that all the blooming plants have come early this year, and, although the Lord blessed Shake Rag Hollow with a beautiful display of flowers this spring, they have, for the most part, come and gone.

Great Sendoff for Concluding 1 Corinthians Bible Study Thursday Night

Sherwood Ebey's class ended this week with a closing session that dealt with, among other things, how churches share their love with one another through their mission. It was fitting that our own group represented several of the churches in our area – not just members of the Fellowship Church. These people expressed their gratitude for making this study available to them, which just goes to show the special joy we enjoy when we open our life as a congregation to others.

Great Time in Chattanooga Last Sunday

After chowing down on tacos at the church our crew headed out for Chattanooga.  It was a fantastic, picture-perfect spring afternoon with lots of people out to enjoy the day.

Chattanooga Outing Next Sunday

After we've had lunch at church next Sunday we'll be going to downtown Chattanooga. We will walk across the Walnut Street Bridge and explore a little of the Northside community and, on the downtown side, walk around the Aquarium area and the walking paths along the river. We'll pick a place to eat out for supper before returning.

Ed's and Andy's Whole Church Lunch

Next Sunday after church Ed Brock and Andy Gay will have a lunch for anybody who would like to stay and eat. All the folks going to Chattanooga for the Sunday outing will eat and run to get on down the road.
