Sardis United Methodist Church 2016 Live Nativity
Be sure to plan to join Sardis United Methodist Church for the 2016 presentation of the Live Nativity. This year it will take place on the 10th and 11th of December starting at 6:00 pm and occurring every thirty minutes until 8:00 pm. After the performance enjoy cookies and hot chocolate and/or cider and come inside to sing Christmas carols in the historic Church sanctuary. This is a free event.
The live Nativity will take place on the front lawn of the Church, located at 3725 Powers Ferry Road, NW – Atlanta, GA 30342
During today’s storm I had to be in Sandy Springs, so before leaving the house I set up my GoPro to capture a time lapse of the storm that was set to come through Atlanta. After getting home I watched it probably three times before Henry saw this flash of lightning from the top of the sky down into the trees across the street. I was able to grab that image and save it. On my way home I drove through Chastain Park on West Wieuca and there was a fire truck parked out in front of the Galloway School. I wonder if their building was hit… Anyone know?
2016 Chastain Park Christmas Tree Sale
If you have driven down Powers Ferry Road in the past week you have noticed the Christmas Tree lot is up and going in the Red Lot adjacent to the Horse Park. Barefoot Mountain has once again brought down their Fraser Fir trees along with wreaths and garland. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Chastain Park Conservancy, so get out there and support Chastain Park! Full Details are below; hours are Thursday & Friday 4pm-8pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-8pm.
This morning after dropping Henry off at school I cruised around Chastain Park and got some fall photos while the sun was coming up. The colors are absolutely amazing out there. Here are some of my favorites. Click on any image to view the hi-res image on CarsonMatthewsPhotography.com
