Whitesburg RAs Father-Son Campout

Talk about perfect camping out weather -- that's what the Whitesburg RAs had for their father-son campout this past weekend!
After a dinner of deluxe bacon-cheeseburgers, they took some time making a 'cabin' craft together.
While they worked, they also had a time of devotion, followed by flashlight tag!
A terrific group had a terrific time!

Sunday School Class Fellowship - New Market Baptist

It was really terrific Saturday for an afternoon/evening of fellowship on the pavilion. And we were so happy that one of our favorite groups were here to enjoy it!
Mrs. Sara made a terrific pot of chili and some hot cider -- perfect for a spring evening where the temps dip down into the 50's -- and Mr. Bill had a roaring fire going in the fireplace!
Dinner was jolly, with everyone 'camping out' by the fireplace.  
For dessert they had a camping favorite . . . s'mores!  Everyone got in on the marshmallow roasting fun!!
After dinner, we took one of Mrs. Sara's famous Bible quizzes. 
May I just say that her quizzes let you know how little you actually know about the good Book??! After the quiz, we played a funny game, and that wrapped up the evening.  They had a great time of fellowship and we love it that they always include us in their fun!

Flint River Community Group -- Low Country Shrimp Boil!

The weather was cool and clear -- a perfect evening for our first group of the spring season to arrive! And the perfect night for the second annual Flint River Baptist Church Community Group Low Country Shrimp Boil!
There was a good crowd of folks . . . probably better than forty adults, teens and children running around!
Once the cooking was done, the big pot was emptied out on not one, but TWO picnic tables!
What a spread! This year they had crayfish flown in all the way from Louisiana!
After a little tutorial on how to eat the crayfish, everyone sat down with plates piled high!

After dinner the fellowship started in earnest.  For some it was around the campfire, roasting marshmallows . . . 
And for some it was around the checkerboard!
That was a very spirited game!!

There were even a few brave individuals who pitched tents (in the dark)!
All in all it was a fantastic evening and folks really enjoyed kicking back and enjoying good food, good friends, and good fellowship. As always, we were grateful to be included in such a fun evening!

As Bill, the coordinator of the effort, said last evening, here's to forty more years!
