89 Cans of Soup!

Last Sunday our kids and kid's helpers brought forward to the altar 89 cans and packs of soup for the Good Samaritan Ministry of Franklin County.  This, of course, translates into 89 meals for people who might otherwise not have a meal, or have something far less nourishing that the soup which you have provided for them by God's grace.

Beautiful Day for a Walk at Old Stone Fort

It was a great day indeed, when we hit the trail - walking the 1.3 miles around the ancient ceremonial field along Indian mounds dating around 2,000 years old.  We caught some of the early wild flowers in our camera lenses, as well as some shots of the falls of the two forks of the Duck River as it is coming off the Highland Rim.

Next Sunday Outing to Old Stone Fort State Park, Manchester

We'll be leaving from the church at 2pm.  We will take the trail along the rivers and the Indian mound that is a circular walk of about 1.3 miles.   The hiking is moderate to easy.  People can cut back to the visitor's center at many points of the trail by walking through

Cowan Fellowship Church to Host Cowan Community Ash Wednesday Service

Here is the Cowan schedule for the season of Lent:

Charles Smith and Andy Gay Visit Decherd United Methodist Church Wednesday Night Youth Gathering

The Decherd United Methodist Church once had a youth group of about 10.  A while back they began a Wednesday night ministry in which they fed a meal to youth, and the word got out among kids around town to the point that, now, they have around 50 elementary-, middle- and high school kids every Wednesday.  Charlie Smith and Andy Gay, at the invitation of the pastor, Kevin Marston, whom Andy has met through the weekly lectionary gathering in Winchester, paid a visit to the Decherd ministry.

Groundbreaking Scene


Book Give Away

We have more books that have been given to the church than we have storage for them.  A lot of books are in boxes, or just laying around in out of the way places.  The Governing Council is going to give people in the church first dibs at taking any books.  We'll offer the books on tables for a couple of Sundays (Feb 5 and 12).  After that, we will check out ministries who might can use the books.  Any books left over after that will be given to the Franklin County Library for their fund raising sales.
