From Gaye –
Hey all! Please join us for a special day of fellowship at Old Sheldon Church Ruins on Easter Sunday! We’ll meet after the second service for a covered dish picnic, an Easter egg hunt for the little ones, and a chance to make some new friends. This is a wonderful opportunity for younger families to connect with older families. Some of us have been gathering together on this special day for about 15 years! It’s a good time to invite military, or single friends out for fellowship. It’s so lovely this time of year!
What you need to bring: chairs or a picnic blanket; a covered dish to share and a dessert of some sort; drinks for your family; an Easter basket with at least a dozen eggs with non melting, non choking candy for each child who wants to participate; a camera; and any friends you’d like to invite. We’ll have plates, napkins, utensils. We’ll have the resurrection eggs to share the gospel with the younger children. We’ll have corn hole, frisbees, and a soccer ball for older kids to kick around. Please note that the closest bathroom is about 3 miles away at the Family Dollar at Gardens Corner.
We’ll plan to eat at 1:45.
If it rains we will celebrate at our own homes 🙂 Pray for a cool sunny bug-free day! And prayerfully ask God who you might invite; an older couple whose children are grown, a new family in our church, military singles, etc….And feel free to forward this email
Directions to Old Sheldon Church:
Take Hwy 21 all the way out to the traffic circle at Gardens Corner. Go through the circle to the left which will put you on Hwy 17 going south. Be careful merging into traffic here, but stay in the right lane because you will take the first right, Old Sheldon Church Road. Go about a mile and you will see the ruins on the right. There is a field to park in across the street. It’s a very busy street, so HOLD CHILDREN’S HANDS as you cross to the ruins.
