Seminar on Old Mountain Remedies

Has your grandma ever shared an old mountain remedy with you? Did it work? Actually, some of those remedies came out of necessity. We didn’t always have a pharmacy down the street or a doctor nearby. The Seventh-day Adventist Church will be presenting a seminar about mountain remedies on Saturday, September 6, at 2p.m. There may be a day when emergencies occur and you need the knowledge. And what about using natural remedies to treat chronic disease? At 4 p.m., the same day, we will cover that aspect as well.

Our special guest will be Walter Cross, of the Mustard Seed Ministries in Newport, Tennessee. Mr. Cross has been in the health food business for over 20 years. He was formerly the director of a physician-based lifestyle center. He has also been certified in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University. A Tennessee native, Mr. Cross is the host of a radio call-in program and he will answer your health questions when you attend this public seminar at the Seventh-day Adventist Church at

1231 Cold Springs Road. He will also be speaking on health in critical times at our 11 o’clock service earlier, if you would also like to attend. There will be a delicious free vegetarian meal served for lunch. The public is invited to join us.
