As luck would have it my husband attended the Georgia Falconry Association meet in Sandersville, Georgia this past weekend and I was scheduled to be at Deep Step UMC in Sandersville on Sunday afternoon to present a Safe Sanctuaries training – so we enjoyed an incredible long weekend together doing what we both love! I even ate the famous Dairy Lane and managed to eat a chili cheese dog without getting anything on my white shirt!
Sunday morning I had the privilege to attend DeepStep UMC for worship and when they were without a musician, jumped in to play the piano for the service as it began! So meaningful. This church is proud of their history and records it well! They have an entire room in the basement that is a historical room. It is amazing!
When I was there last February, I was given the grand tour and down below you will find this treasure – a time capsule that is scheduled to be opened in 2025! I may have to make a point to go back for that and what a great Advocate story that would be. I am not sure when it was created – I need to find the answer to that question. Preserving history and telling the stories of our faith is truly a legacy!
As I headed home, I took the opportunity to capture several more of our churches – Sandersville is a beautiful traditional red brick church in the heart of the historic district and then neighboring Tennille – boasts Tennille UMC as well as Piney Mount tucked off Highway 15 along a dirt road.
Then thanks to Google maps I stumbled upon a few more on the way home! Wrightsville UMC which I will be going to in March and Boiling Springs off the beaten path with a large cemetery located in front of the church.
The only thing that stopped me from tackling Dublin and more was the lack of daylight – so for another day. Six more down and we are just getting started!
