VBS At Christ UMC Is June 1-6

Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Vacation Bible School at Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, will be June 1-6 with two sessions:  Evening: Sunday-Thursday, 6:30-8:30 p.m.; Morning: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-noon.

At Weird Animals VBS, kids discover that Jesus’ love is one-of-a-kind. Weird Animals is a habitat filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life – something we call God Sightings.

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us in the "Tail End" Friends section each day/evening (30 minutes prior to dismissal) because that’s when we’ll be having a daily celebration of Jesus’ love you won’t want to miss.

Register your children for this life-changing adventure with the church. 

The Ladies Supper Club for women over 50 will meet Tuesday, June 3 at 6 p.m. at J. Alexanders at Hamilton Place. Reservations are necessary. Call Ann Boleman at 855-870.

Voters Deserve The Truth About Tennessee Supreme Court Justices

I am an experienced trial lawyer, and, frankly, I am dismayed with the negative advertisements and mailers about three of our Tennessee Supreme Court Justices.  These mailers talk about the Justices being liberal and tie them to Obamacare.  Clearly, this propaganda attempts to focus attention away from the Justices themselves to political subjects sensitive to many Tennesseans. ...

Roy Exum: Two Wrongs Not Right

Scottie Mayfield is a delightful friend of mine but he’s the last guy in the world who should be aiming at anybody’s character. He’s always had class but today Scottie is the “star” of a shameful political commercial in which he assails challenger Weston Wamp on behalf of a panicked Chuck Fleischmann. Mayfield, you’ll remember, ran against the two in the last race for the District ... (click for more)
