A Beach Party

In Murfreesboro they are having a beach party on May 12th at 5pm and it is just made for kids. So schedule ahead and have fun.

It's here...well soon anyway.

I talked last year in November about a movie being shot locally about the All Saints' Episcopal Church. Well guess what will be showing soon in August. All Saints is going to be a great movie.

About All Saints
ALL SAINTS is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all. 
After trading in his corporate sales career to become a pastor, Michael’s first assignment is All Saints, a quaint country church with a dozen members. It comes with a catch: he has to close the church doors for good and sell the prime piece of land on which it sits. While developers eagerly eye the property and the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael and his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots. 
But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen (kuh-REN) refugees from Burma—former farmers striving for a fresh start in America—Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Toiling alongside the Karen people, the congregation attempts to turn their fertile land into a working farm to pay the church’s bills and feed its newest people. 
Jeopardizing his family’s future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do—close the church and sell the property—or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community.

Here is also a video that has been released about the leaders of the community and their struggles.

Theaters & Tickets
ALL SAINTS opens in theaters on August 25 and as we get closer to that date, we will have a full list of theaters, show times, and tickets available. For now, be sure to sign up to get the latest updates about ALL SAINTS.

Website news

Well it is pretty much official on my end. Unless disaster strikes, I will be moving to Murfreesboro in Mid-July. At that point, unless I can find someone to take over here, I will be shutting down and turning off the lights as I leave.

If there is someone that wishes to take up the site, I will repurchase a year for the internet page (all this page does is redirect to the blogspot site) and transfer the ownership and free hosting over to you, I will assign you admin control of and the two facebook pages connected with the site. I will also help you find the resources and such for information to share here.

It has been fun and I hope I have helped you connect to the many services and events that occur in Smyrna.

Grand Opening

The old Town Centre has been rebuilt into something so much more. They are having their official grand opening and you should drop by for the fun and to check out a new resource for our community.

Smyrna has released some information on the offerings at the center.

They also got rid of that darn English style 'Centre' spelling and is now using 'center'. My computer always underlined it as a misspelled word.

The Side-by-Side Concert is the culmination of their hard work over the past year and will also feature the still-to-be-announced 2017 Curb Concerto Competition winner.
