summer-chapel-band-10-4-09-2Today, St. Nicholas received a true gift. Thanks to Cason and Nancy Callaway, the Summer Chapel Band from Cashiers, North Carolina visited once again to play their Southern Gospel/Bluegrass music for our 11:00 am service. Led by Mark Lassiter on piano, the band graced us with old-time gospel tunes like In the Garden, Amazing Grace, and I’ll Fly Away. They also played Church in the Wildwood, which described our beautiful church to a tee. The church was packed, and we had many guests and friends who came long distances to hear the band. Nancy Callaway even had a friend from St. Simons Island, GA who was with us!

Afterward, we were treated again with a delicious fried chicken dinner on the lawn, thanks to Linda Sawyer and her crew of faithful and dedicated volunteers. Overall, it was a fantastic day!
