Let us gather together and offer thanks to God for the blessings that we have been given in the form of our furry companions.
We will gather on the front lawn of St. David's for a short service of Thanksgiving and the Blessing of the Animals.
Please join us for a Men's Club planning/dinner meeting on Sunday, August 15 in Jeffords Hall. Social time begins at 6:30 pm, dinner at 7:00 p.m., and meeting at 7:30 p.m. It has been a while since many of us have seen each other, so we will focus on having some social time and getting caught up on how everyone is doing. We will have a discussion about social events for the remainder of 2021 and discuss what our plans will be for reenergizing our ministry for the future. Our dinner menu is TBD. We will have soft drinks, but if you like, please BYOB. The cost will be $10/person.
Outdoors Ministry is planning a trip to Lula Lake Land Trust outside Lookout Mountain, Georgia, on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
Lula Lake Land Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established by the will of Robert M. Davenport in January of 1994. Dedicated to the preservation of lands located within the Rock Creek watershed on Lookout Mountain, the mission is to preserve the natural and historic landscapes surrounding Rock Creek and its tributaries through conservation, education, and low-impact recreation.
On Saturday, August 21 we will hike the trails along the creek to an overlook visiting the waterfalls and lake. A guide will lead the hike giving us a full history of the land and the mission of the organization. This trip can be a one day outing or an extended weekend. If you plan on staying the weekend I would recommend Cloudland Canyon State Park where there is camping, yurts and cabins for rent. Cloudland Canyon State Park offers other hiking opportunities as well. The local area offers other accommodations and interest such as Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park ( nice bike riding ).
Please let me know if you are interested in day or weekend trip. I would highly recommend making your camping / yurt / cabin / B&B accommodations soon as they will go quickly. I will be camping at Cloudland, arriving on Friday August 20, staying August 21 and departing Sunday August 22 and welcome anyone who wants to join me. The weekend will allow for fellowship, sharing and seeing our friends from church. It's been a long time folks lets get outdoors together.
Please contact Mary Veal for more information and questions.
