What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Let's meet at 4p in front of the Piper Palm House (look for the red ball #1 on the map in the photos section of this event -- the house itself is pictured as well). Our first order of business will be to check out the wide array of food & get something for dinner. (Yum!) After that we can check out entertainment & the International bazaar. This is a GREAT event for trying a variety of international foods -- for shopping their "world bazaar" (including souvenirs, art, jewelry, clothes, & more from a wide range of nationalities) -- and for witnessing cultural songs, dance, & entertainment from abroad. Parking, admission, & entertainment are free. The event ends at 7p Saturday. Here's a link with more info on directions, parking, & the shuttle (http://festivalofnationsstl.org/index.php/festival-info/). You can always try parking on one of the side streets off the park.

Founded in 2000, our annual Festival of Nations has quickly grown into the St. Louis region's largest multicultural festival."

Come join us for a night of food, fun, and fellowship! Everyone is welcome! Please let us know in the comments if you have a birthday this month - or if not, if you'd like to bring 1 of the 2 desserts (2 is plenty). ' :-) If the weather happens to be beautiful we may sit outside. If anyone might have time & interest to get there early in case we can get tables outside, that'd be great (please touch base with me). ;-) The reservation will be under "Sharon".
Chariots of Fire (1981) "Two British track athletes, one a determined Jew, and the other a devout Christian, compete in the 1924 Olympics." Length: 2 hrs - Biography, Drama, Sport - PG - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082158/ [Quick note: we try to avoid food in the sanctuary so we don't have to vacuum before leaving that night.] ~~Directions~~ Take the Mid Rivers Mall Dr exit off hwy 70. On Mid Rivers Mall Dr, go down 2 or 3 lights (depending on if you're coming from the east or the west) and you'll reach Suemandy Dr. (you'll see a Mobil gas station in front of you on the right). Then, turn right (west) onto Suemandy Dr, which turns into Veterans Memorial Pkwy. You'll know you're going the right way b/c you'll pass a Steak n Shake within a block. Go 1.2 miles. This road dead-ends -- the church is the very last thing on the road at the dead-end. Please ignore if GPS warns that it's a dead-end -- that's expected. Near the end, you'll reach a stop sign, turn left & then right into the church parking lot.
