An Amazon Wish List has been created to help Erik, Carrie and family with their transition back to the states. They are leaving most of their clothes and housewares behind. Items from the Wish List can be purchased directly from amazon.com or can be purchased elsewhere, just indicate on the Wish List that you intend to purchase that item to eliminate duplicates. To locate the Wish List, go to www.amazon.com, click on the "Friends & Family Gifting" tab, enter "carrie wiegand" in the "Find Someone's List" field, the list is titled "Wiegand Re-Entry." Items can be given to Mark and Connie Rocke or Ron and Kary Wiegand. Please contact Christy Wiegand or Adam or Maribeth Rocke if you have questions about using the Amazon Wish List or if you would like to donate money towards something off the Wish List. Another option would be to give a gift card to WalMart, Target, Amazon, etc. Thank you so much for generously blessing this precious family!

Please click-here to view the brochure for the 5K walk and 10K run fundraiser for My Sister’s House on Saturday, November 11th. This is to be a family friendly event, encouraging the family of God to love one another.  Please see Bro. Sam Moser with any questions.

About the Tennessee Fellowship Area / Athens Church

The Tennessee Fellowship Area is a place where Apostolic Christian people can come from across the nation to worship God in a quiet country setting, enjoy fellowship and attend events. In all activities, our heavenly Father and his son, our Lord Jesus Christ, are to be honored. In addition to Memorial Day Weekend activities that have occurred for over 20 years, the area is also used for picnics and fishing. Families traveling in the area can also stay overnight using camping facilities and RV hookups.

The Athens Apostolic Christian Church is located approximately a half hour south of the property. The property and the church are located in the Bible Belt where Southern hospitality abounds.
