Fabulous Fox Theater Tour and Lunch on Crescent Avenue!

Fox Theater

Join us Thursday, March 23 for a tour of the Fabulous Fox Theater in downtown Atlanta. Fox Theatre Tours is a 60-minute guided program that will showcase the must-see details of the Fox and its remarkable history. Guests will tour over 10 locations throughout the building – from the orchestra pit and Mighty Mo’, the largest working Moller theater organ in the world to the Men’s Lounge featuring the original furniture chosen by the wife of movie mogul William Fox.

They will also learn the incredible story of how the citizens rose up to save the Fox from the wrecking ball while walking the very same halls as Elvis and The Rolling Stones. Tickets are $15.

Lunch will be on Crescent Avenue where you can choose between South City Kitchen, Tin Lizzy’s, Lure or Front Page News. Vans will park across from Tin Lizzy’s.

Leaving from Parlor at 9:00 am.

Sign up today for this great tour and lunch!

Honduras Mission Trip

Gale and Roger Davis write that the Honduras mission trip scheduled for April still needs participants!! The missions committee of the church has made some funds available for participants.

The Board of Stewards Meeting Wednesday night voted to help us fund mission trip volunteers! We are REALLY hoping that this new funding will help with individual costs enough that you will now be able to join us! We are short 10 people for our April 20 trip!! To date, 10 of your best friends are signed up! We need you!

There will be a $500 credit toward an RUMC International mission trip for attendance at 4 of the following GIC events : Thursday Men’s or Women’s events, Friday morning Tour, Friday night Poverty simulation, Friday night dinner at Elizabeth Inn, Saturday morning Stop Hunger event, Saturday afternoon block party, any Sunday worship service (volunteering at any event is included) Credit of $250 toward an RUMC International mission trip expense for attendance at 3 of the above mentioned events. Non-transferrable.

Only RUMC members are eligible and, credits only apply to RUMC trips in 2017. Note: this will not be a strenuous trip. We will be on bumpy roads traveling in a van or bus but we can all handle the projects! Complete information can be found at
