During the recent 2018 TN Fellowship Memorial Day Weekend event, we were blessed with wonderful support from brothers and sisters from your church and from others across the country. We especially appreciated the large number of young people who came and the great energy they brought. On behalf of the Athens congregation and the TN Fellowship Board, I wanted to take a few minutes to say a heartfelt thank you. The Athens congregation was truly blessed and encouraged. God's presence was felt by all through the fellowship and sharing of the Word through the speakers and song.

We plan to continue hosting the TN Fellowship Weekend in 2019 (May 25-26) and pray that God will continue to be glorified through the weekend events.

In Christ,

Tom Waldbeser
