The Redland Community Center has agreed to give Highways and Byways Ministries use of the building. They will be re-opening the church with an "Old-Fashioned Day" on Saturday, April 20th. Service will begin at 2:00 p.m. There will be singing and dinner on the ground. Dress like old-time meeting days. Everyone is invited to attend.
We have a new board member. Teana Robinson was elected to fill the vacancy created by Gene Barron's resignation. The board voted to allow Highways and Byways Ministry to use the building on Saturday nights. Upcoming: Christian Harmony singing -- Saturday before the 4th Sunday in April McCune Cemetery homecoming -- Last Sunday in May
The Rusk County Singing Convention is drawing near. It consists of two parts -- the Redland Christian Harmony Singing and the Old Pine Grove Sacred Harp Singing. The Convention will be at Redland on Saturday April 21st. We start at 10 a.m. and sing a cappella from the 2010 edition of William Walker's Christian Harmony song book. Loaner books will be available. Lunch will be served. Make plans to come out and sing with us (or listen , if that is your pleasure!) You can find more information HERE and HERE.
Sierra Reynolds, granddaughter of board member Ginger Shorter, gets busy cleaning the old church inside and out. See a few pictures below. Sierra wanted to clean at Redland as a school and 4-H community service project. Thanks a million, Sierra!
I haven't posted anything recently on this blog. Just want to mention that we had a wedding in the old Redland building in the fall. We have a singing coming up in April. Keep an eye out for more information.
Early in the morning there was a nip in the air, which warmed into a perfectly pleasant day. The high gusts of Friday did not return, and a little band gathered at the Old Redland Church to raise the simple strains from the new 2010 edition of The Christian Harmony. All pronounced the day a success, and are looking forward to next year. See below a pictures of singers who gathered for a picture after the singing.
