‘THE MAN WHO MOVED A MOUNTAIN’
ROCK CHURCHES OF THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY
Join us on Saturday, June 25, 2022, as we travel to Carroll County, VA, and tour the former courthouse in Hillsville, the site of the April 1912 massacre. We will also tour the Carroll County Museum and learn more about the Rev. Bob Childress’ work. We will tour the J. Sidna Allen Home in Cana, VA.
As we begin our tour up the Blue Ridge Parkway, we will focus on the six historical churches built by Rev. Bob Childress. These churches are in the counties of Carroll, Floyd and Patrick. In a biography entitled “The Man Who Moved A Mountain,” it is told how Rev. Childress braved the wilderness and brought the light of the gospel to wild and brutal areas. The Hillsville Massacre of 1912 helped Bob Childress to realize that the drinking, fighting and killings so much a part of the mountain people’s lives, were not normal. Come with us and learn how one man made such a huge impact on the mountain people.
We will do fudge sampling at Nancy’s Candy Company and have a boxed lunch at one of the Rock Churches.
