Birmingham Area Cluster Group Joint Picnic – Saturday June 15th (11AM – 2PM)

For our June cluster meeting, we are going to have a joint picnic with the other Birmingham area Emmaus Clusters, Birmingham East and South Shelby.

This will be held on Saturday, June 15th, at Mountain Chapel UMC (2541 Rocky Ridge Rd, Birmingham, AL 35243), from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

The get together will be held at the picnic/playground area behind Mountain Chapel, or inside church (Fireside Room/Gym) in the event of rain. This is a FAMILY event, open to all. You may even want to consider inviting a friend/potential pilgrim to come have some fun with us! We are hoping that this will be a fun event for all, and an opportunity to socialize with the other clusters in our “grouping”.
