    It’s time for our new Church Pictorial Directory, and we need YOU to make it a great success!
    This year there will be several ways for you to sign up for your photo session:

    • Every family having their photo made will receive a 20% discount, a free 8x10 color photo, and a directory.
    • For the first time, you can sign up online from home. Anyone including their e-mail address in signing up will receive an e-mail reminder with a $10 discount coupon. This means whether you sign up at home or at church, if you give us your e-mail address, you will receive the discount. You will also receive a phone reminder of your appointment.
    • Or, you can choose to sign up in person after worship service or on Wednesday evenings. Those signing up in person will be reminded of their appointment time by phone. They will not receive the $10 discount unless they give an e-mail.

    Everyone signing up will receive a price list. Online sign ups will begin on Sunday, April 6. In person sign ups at church will begin the following Sunday, April 13, and end Sunday, May 18. Photo sessions begin on May 20 – June 7, weekdays and on Saturdays.

  2. Seminars on Healthy Aging

    First Baptist Nashville 108 Seventh Avenue South Nashville, Tennessee

    On Mondays at 10:00 a.m., April 21 – May 19, we will host a series of insightful topics of interest to many of us regarding aging and aging well. We don’t have a choice about aging but we do have a choice on how we do it!

    Our speakers will cover caregiving, dementia, legal issues, local resources, and healthy aging. Speakers will include local specialists and one or more from outside our area. I have heard all of these people and they know their stuff and are good presenters. You, your kids who may become your caregivers, your parents … many of us will benefit from these seminars.

    Lunch will follow each presentation. These obviously take up two of our 3M programs (third Monday) for the coming months. Mark your calendars, invite a friend or relative, and plan to join us. Contact Rus for more details or watch for publicity around the building.

    We begin with a program at 10:00 a.m. and lunch at 11:00 a.m. RSVP for this memorable time so we may prepare accurately for lunch ($5).


    Upcoming Schedule:

    September 15—One of the most insightful minds regarding the Nashville (or national) religious scene is Ray Waddle. We are privileged to have him speak on Monday, September 15, at 10:00 a.m. on how the local landscape has changed during his life here. Ray Waddle is an award-winning journalist who was religion editor at The Tennessean in Nashville, TN, for 17 years before moving to Yale University as editor of Reflections, Yale Divinity School’s journal of theological inquiry. Waddle, who is a published author and was an adjunct member of the faculty at Vanderbilt Divinity School from 2002 – 2006, returned to Nashville last year. His two books are Against the Grain: Unconventional Wisdom from Ecclesiastes and A Turbulent Peace: The Psalms for Our Time. Actually, he has just published a third one, which he will share about with us. Waddle earned a B.A. in journalism in 1978 from the University of Oklahoma and an M.A. in religious studies from Vanderbilt University in 1981.

    His observations will definitely be worth hearing! Lunch will follow at 11:00 a.m., so call 615.664.6015 and RSVP if you plan on eating with us.

    October 20—Sports Anchor, Rudy Kalis, will be with us. He is an outspoken believer and will be inspirational and entertaining.

    November 17—I am excited for you to meet Tom Turner. He directs the Downtown Partnership and knows Nashville like no one else—especially our immediate community. He is in touch with retail, housing, tourism, commercial growth—everything you want to know about downtown, he can address.

    December 15Carol Austin will be with us. The Austin family has served many of us for decades in the funeral home business. She will share very helpful information.
