TNT Event Friday, October 2, 7 pm
The TNT group is getting together at Billy G’s in Kirkwood on October 2 at 7:00pm.  TNT used to stand for twenties and thirties (age) group.  We have kept the name, but the age group has expanded a bit.  The group is a dinner and special activity group that meets a few times a year.  There’s no agenda really, just time with folks from church.  Free childcare is offered at the church beginning at 6:30 pm.  RSVP to Beth Willock if you can come and/or need childcare.
