It will be from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday. This wonderful experience will offer live inspirational music from Hannah and Matt Duff, and great food and fellowship, while allowing those in attendance to enjoy a panoramic sunset atop one of the highest bluffs in Natchez on the grounds of beautiful Weymouth Hall. 050614Painting

The event at Weymouth Hall will also offer many silent auction items which include a 2007 National Championship print signed by Coach Les Miles and artist Michael Hunt; LSU basketballs signed by Coach Johnny Jones and one from Coach Nikki Caldwell; a baseball and media guide signed by Coach Paul Maineri and a bed and breakfast stay at Weymouth Hall. Many local businesses have donated silent auction items that you will enjoy. For discounted advance tickets or to make a donation, call 318 336-5603 or 318-757-7078.

The purposes of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the eight recovery principles found in the Beatitudes. We open the door by sharing our experiences with each other. Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to share your hurts, habits and hang-ups and allow God to heal them. Help and healing are available and free to all. Come join us at our weekly Thursday night meeting at First Baptist Church in Vidalia at 6 p.m. to experience healing and Celebrate Recovery.   You will have a free meal followed by large group and then small groups that are gender specific. Large group includes contemporary praise and worship music with either a lesson or a testimony. Confidentiality and anonymity are of utmost importance as part of the Celebrate Recovery program.

We would also like to thank the many Sunday school classes that provide our free meal on Thursday nights and the many businesses and individuals that have donated or secured the many silent auction items.

As one of the assimilation coaches on the local Celebrate Recovery leadership team, we share the responsibility for publicity and marketing.

Because this program has done such a miraculous work in my life, I am truly honored and humbled to use my God-given talents in my chosen field.

Whether you bid on one of the many silent auction items or not, I think you will be inspired and learn about a program that God is using to change people’s lives — by healing their habits, hang-ups or behavior through the Celebrate Recovery program. Advance tickets are available at the church office located at 608 Texas St. in Vidalia. Bring a lawn chair or quilt to sit on the grounds of Weymouth Hall and enjoy an evening of “Sunset Serenades.”
