Ladies’ Bible Study

Our ladies are invited to a Bible study being held on Sundays at 5pm. We Saved You A Seat by Lisa-Jo Baker is a study that focuses on friendship. Friendships can be hard, making new friends harder, and maintaining genuine friendships the hardest of all.

If you would like to give, please take an envelope and return it by May 26th. The kids will be blessed by any donation amount given.       

August Canal Trip  

We have planned a trip to Augusta for Sat.  June 1st. We plan to leave at 7am. There are a couple of adventure options for the day. For those interested, you can choose to kayak down the Augusta Canal. The route is just over 5 miles long and takes about 2 hours. This is a perfect trip for beginner kayakers as there are no rapids, just a nice float trip with the river’s current. You can rent a tandem ($45) or single kayak ($35) and will be shuttled back and forth. If 5 or more people sign up to kayak, you’ll save $5 per rental. For those who are not interested in kayaking, you can do a self-guided tour around the historic Savannah Rapids Park, complete with a playground, Visitor’s Center and trails to explore. We plan to have a    picnic lunch at the park before heading to The Augusta Canal Discovery Center. We can tour the discovery center for a small fee ($6) and/or take a boat tour down the canal ($14– includes a ticket to tour the Discovery Center). We plan to head back home around 5pm with a stop for icecream/food on the way.  Please see the posted sign-up sheet for all  details and cost breakdowns. Please speak with  Brantley Stokes if you have any other questions.
