Fri. June 16th: Nashville Sounds Baseball Game

“Baseball Anyone?”

Several members are planning to go see the Sounds play on June 16th. The game begins at 7:05. We plan to meet outside the park at a gate (to be decided) at 6:00 and get cheap tickets in the same section. Food and beverages are available for all tastes inside the park. Come join us. Bring your glove and we’ll have some fun! Did I mention that there are fireworks after the game? The kids will love it. Either signup at church or call the Church office so we’ll be able to give you the gate number and any other details.
