Up and Going News

On Thursday, June 21st, fifteen members and guests boarded the St. Jacob’s Express for a day trip to NC.  Before departing, Helen gave the devotions entitled “360 Degrees of Praise”.  She challenged each of us to be observant and see and experience a new sight, sound of experience today.  She ended with prayer.  Off we went with Gerald driving the bus.  He took us on a scenic trip through Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, then on to Hendersonville to the Bay Breeze Seafood Restaurant for lunch.  All reports were that the food was plentiful and exceptionally delicious.  All enjoyed a leisurely lunch  before boarding the bus for the short ride to downtown Saluda, NC.  We enjoyed window shopping and visiting the various shops, while reliving other trips to Saluda.  Soon it was time to head home. The weather was HOT but no rain.  We had lots of ice cold bottled water and snacks  and chocolate chip cookies thanks to Davis. We enjoyed snacks and water and just relaxed as Gerald skillfully drove us safely home.  We departed at 8:30 AM and arrived back at 5 PM.  It was a full day with never enough time to do all that one would like to do.  Special appreciation to Gerald for driving for us and being so patient with us.
The 4-Churches meeting will be held on Thursday, August 23rd at 11:30 AM at Mount Tabor Lutheran Church, Little Mountain, SC.  Meat and Tea will be provided by Mt. Tabor.  Each attendee is asked to bring a dish to share. We will all meet at Mt. Tabor.
