Forever Young Road Trip of August 11,2019 to Kingsville Ohio congreagation.
1. Ten seniors Parma., OH and 8 from Erie, PA met for Divine Service in Kingsville OH. The District Ev. Welch and Pr. Hallmark (Erie) served us.
2. Afterwards we traveled to the Chestnut Grove Cemetery in Ashtabula and visited the memorial for the 1876 Ashtabula Railway Bridge Disaster. Philip Bliss , the famous Gospel composer, and his wife died in the fire of the train. The designer of the bridge, Charles Collins, is also buried here. We prayed and sang "It is well with my Soul " written by P.Bliss.
3. We dinned together at the Ferrante Restaurant & Winery in Harpersfield.
Joan Pilz and Priest Renner put together a number of gift bags for some of our seniors and shut ins after the annual Advent Dinner. Many people contributed snacks and toiletries for the bags.
The best part was the reaction of the folks receiving the bags delivered by the senior crew. The folks were very happy to have someone not only provide a small gift, but visit them and chat. Many wanted to know the latest Fellowship Family news and expressed a longing to be in church more often.
