Men’s Fall 2009 Canoe Trip

UPDATED FOR DATE CHANGE TO OCTOBER 24.

Canoe Kentucky has a “Fall Foliage Trip” during October.  Basically, it runs 6 miles down the Kentucky then into the Dix River.  The Dix is the clearest river in the state (trout fishing).  We paddle up to the dam.  I am looking at Saturday October 24.  It is Saturday only, from 11 AM to 4 PM.  We would probably leave the church at 9:30 AM, back around 6:00 PM.  Below is more info and links.  Let Mark Roberts know who is interested.  Price would be $45.00 which includes rental, guide, lunch and drinks.

Dix River Spectacular

The Dix River below Lake Herington is located right in the middle of the Kentucky River Palisades. These awesome cliffs rise over 250 feet out of the water, and continue their way up the Dix River. Many pioneers to Kentucky, including the great Daniel Boone, stood atop these cliffs to glass the beautiful landscape of Kentucky.

dix_riverThis trip is a wonderful opportunity to see one of the prettiest stretches of river anywhere in the bluegrass. Friendly and knowledgeable guides will entertain you with historical information about the area, as well as take care of all the logistics for the trip. All you need to do is relax, paddle and enjoy the day.
This trip takes approximately 4- 5 hours, and covers a distance of about 6 miles.

It is an up and back trip, so the put in is also the take out. It does include a one hour lunch break at the turn around point, lunch is included. This trip has scheduled dates, or can be arranged almost anytime for groups (Reservations made at least 7 days in advance are required).

Celebration Sunday

It’s Time to celebrate!  Next Sunday, August 30th, is the day we have set aside to come together and thank God for all He has done, and is doing.  We’ll begin with everyone (children included) in the sanctuary at 9:30 AM.  At around 10:00, we’ll split into age group sections for some focused time to look at our LIFE Classes for the coming year.  Morning worship will follow at 10:45 where we anticipate a challenging message about being involved in God’s mission and living out what we believe.

During our evening worship, we will watch video clips of our “summer of service” and hear a few stories of those who were involved.

We look forward to celebrating with you!

Just One Ministry

In 1976, president Gerald Ford proclaimed a week in November to be National Adoption Week.  In 1990, that week grew to a month, now called “National Adoption Awareness Month.”  As Christians, we are called to care for all orphans (James 1:27).  It is a daunting task considering the number of orphans worldwide is over 130 million.  In Kentucky, there are 5,000 orphans waiting for “forever familes.”  What’s the church to do?  If every church in the USA adopted on orphaned child, the siutation would be eradicated!  Find out how you can make a difference in the lives of orphans at iCareAboutOrphans.org.  In March, LaGrange Baptist Church will launch the “Just One” orphan ministry.  Please be in prayer about how God will use you to help just one child.
