Friend of the Month:
Toby Balda is a member of the Tuesday Night Prayer Group, a wonderful dad, and a faithful friend. He took the picture of Mark Elliott and me with his phone at Norm's River Roadhouse. He's quick to turn 'roadie' and offer his support and help with hauling gear and runs sound for us on occasion. You'll find Toby on Sunday mornings working with the audio visual team at The People's Church in Franklin, TN. Thanks for your friendship, Toby!

Remember, to watch cartoons from time to time to rejuvenate your imagination, creativity, and to appreciate the child within your soul.
September 11th - The Tuesday Night Prayer Group's Homecoming Celebration...On 9-11 when the Trade Center fell to terrorism in NYC, I was the praise and worship leader at a small Lutheran church. People called me to join with them in prayer. Over 40 people gathered in my living room to pray. That began the Tuesday Night Prayer Group, a weekly gathering on Tuesday nights, 6pm now held at First Lutheran Church in Downtown Nashville on 8th Avenue between Broadway and McGavock. This week we join on 9-11 for our homecoming. Praise, Potluck, and Prayer...we are open to everyone. If you have ever been...or never been, we'd love to have you join us if you are in Nashville this week. Please call Devon at 615-400-5140 if you have any questions.
September 14, 15, 16 and September 21, 22, 23 are private engagements for Carthage United Methodist Church and the Indianapolis Nazarene Women's District.
