Seniors@Grace - THIS Thursday, August 25
Seniors@Grace are getting together for a throwback event. Mark your calendars for Thursday August 25th for an old fashioned hymn sing with an old fashioned traditional fried chicken and all the trimmings luncheon. Monty Bennett will be at the keyboard to play a wonderful selection of old hymn favorites selected by our very own Norma Surratt. Each set of hymns will be followed by one of us sharing a story recounting a time we got in trouble at church or Sunday school. Please give Norma a call if you want to be included in this portion of the program.
We will gather at 11:30 am in the Fellowship Hall with lunch at noon followed by the hymn sing. If you can make it on August 25 please let Annie Laurie Wheat know by Tuesday, August 23 at (803) 517-0626 (cell) or (803 980-1834 (home) or by email:
