Let's plan to meet at the Marketplace parking lot at 5:00 p.m. to carpool/caravan. We can decide on a place to stop to eat on the way. We will be joining the Forsyth Astronomical Society for a public observation on Saturday November 10th in the upper knob overlook parking area of Pilot Mountain State Park. This is one of the premier public observation sites due to its darker skies in comparison to the typical urban sites. More dark sky objects will be visible at this location than any public event site locally. As darkness ebbs a plethora of star clusters, nebulae and even galaxies will be visible if sky conditions allow. Come see God's glory in the night sky! The observation will continue until 10 pm.
This is a public observations and FREE!
The event is held in the parking lot on top of
Pilot Mountain and start around sunset.
Check the website at www.fas37.org for weather updates the day of the event.

Hello Brothers and Sisters. Last year we gathered to collect specifically needed items for our persecuted brothers and sisters via the Voice of the Martyrs ministry. Let's do it again this year. We are blessed to be a blessing (2 Corinthians 8-9) so this event is a great opportunity to give back in a small but hopefully big and practical way. We will gather for a covered dish meal (bring something to share) and then fill 4 "Medical Packs" and write notes of encouragement to our persecuted Brothers and Sisters in hostile parts of the world. We will be doing this through the Voice of the Martyrs, (VOM): http://www.persecution.com/ Please bring items that we can put into these packs. The packs are provided so we just need the items to include. If you would rather contribute to the shipping costs, that would be great as well. Examples of the types of items donors place in Medical Packs go to: http://www.persecution.com/familymedpacks Family photo and note or drawing (optional, but appreciated by our persecuted family) We will also pray over these items and so even if you cannot join us, please keep the staff and recipients of the VOM in your prayers. Looking to seeing you.
Several of us were able to go to this last year and really enjoyed it. This year the speaker is Jonathan Falwell of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg VA.
The Winston-Salem Rescue Mission is a wonderful oasis for many in desperate need of sobriety and salvation: https://www.wsrescue.org/
It will take place at the Benton Convention Center (301 West Fifth Street) in downtown Winston-Salem but folks are welcome to meet at my house beforehand (916 Holland Street WS) at 6ish and then carpool together or you can meet us there.
FYI, even though there is no charge for this banquet, this event serves as a needed fund raiser. Somewhere around $50 per person is their break even point for the evening but the main thing is your attendance even if that amount is not feasible at this time.
Reservations are required so please pray about your RSVP as it will be considered a commitment to attend. Please RSVP here with TCS and on the above noted weblink ideally by noon on Monday October the 29th.
Hoping you can join us.
The weather is starting to cool off. It is time for another hike. Lets meet at the Rock Castle Gorge trail head at 10:00 am. This is a strenuous hike. This hike is a 10.5 mile long loop. The first two miles (goat path) of the hike is very steep. The Rock Castle Gorge hike is very pretty. We will be walking through different types of terrain. Looks like there should be some nice color in the trees this coming weekend. This should be a great time to enjoy God's creation. After the hike, we can stop at a local restaurant and enjoy some dinner together. Roy,
Please bring a dish to share along with your favorite drink. Someone will need to bring some extra plates. I will need help with the music and creating a document with the lyrics so I can print copies.
We will meet 8 am at the Exxon station, 5076 Styers Ferry Rd, Right off exit[masked] N going towards Lewisville from W-S. We will drive to Damascus VA to rent bikes ($27 if you don't have one). We will take their shuttle to the top of the mountain and bike an easy 17.5 mi. trail (description below) This will be a leisurely ride with time to explore the many small waterfalls and side roads that I have discovered. We will eat lunch on the trail and dinner in Lansing, NC at Pie on the Mountain.
1. Lunch for the trail
3. $ for bike rental, dinner, carpool gas
4. Maybe a change of clothes
5. Sunscreen? - the trail is mostly shaded
From Whitetop Station near the top of the second highest peak in Virginia, the Creeper Trail meanders (mostly!) downhill through and over some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable – open farmlands and fields, dense forests, Christmas tree farms, rushing streams and creeks. On your way, you’ll sail across nearly 50 wooden trestles as you glide above this stunning scenery and travel through small, charming towns and past restored railroad depots. The VCT will intersect with the Appalachian Trail at a few points along your journey and, between Damascus and Whitetop, you’ll find Whitetop Laurel Creek, one of Virginia’s largest and most beautiful wild trout streams, just feet from the trail.
