Blue Jeans, Bluegrass & BBQ - Area 4
Start the year off right with blue jeans, bluegrass and BBQ. You may want to do some line dancing or square dancing before it's over. Moss Catering will be supplying their delicious BBQ and you'll bring a large side dish or dessert!  Mickey Robinson & the South Wind Bluegrass Band will entertain us.


After church the youth  and Pastor Seth Coleman are hosting a luncheon for all senior adults in Area 4. Please email   or   a wedding picture of you and your mate with names and dates.
