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.

Pathfinder Program Open to Public
Young people—are you looking for adventure? Challenge? Group activities? The Seventh-day Adventist Church at 1231 Cold Springs Road is beginning their second year of PATHFINDERS—a Christian scout-like organization. It meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30-8:00 p.m. This program is especially geared to ages 10-15. It helps young people develop community spirit, work together as a team, and grow in the grace and the knowledge of God. The registration is going on during the month of September, so come by and have a look. October’s program features Native American Lore, with a real tipi and Indian crafts.
Last year’s program taught young ladies how to sew and decorate cakes. There was also fun learning about ferns, cats, and plaster crafts. Guys might enjoy the camping skills, which show you how to build shelters, start a fire in the woods, and learn how to use a compass. A summer class taught horsemanship and featured a four hour trail ride to the top of Raven Rock overlooking Neva. There is an upcoming campout at Carden’s Bluff near Butler, Tennessee
State and area campouts are held annually. This is an international program and a world camporee in OshKosh, Wisconsin brought together about 50,000 kids from all over. A group from Mountain City made the trek and helped operate a pioneer village which featured Daniel Boone in costume, tomahawk throwing, Dutch oven cookery, the gee-haw-whimmy-diddle, cutting logs with a crosscut saw, even playing a saw musically!
So, young people, if you want to learn some interesting skills, crafts, and how to love God all in one, come join the Pathfinders. For more info, call Donna Mnich, at 423-725-2306 or just drop by any Wednesday in September.
