Dear Carrington Cousins,
You will recall that our collective ancestor, Rev. Timothy Carrington, pastored Cloud's Creek Baptist Church (CCBC) in Oglethorpe County, GA, from 1792 to January 1803. Rev. Timothy was also a charter member of CCBC, and his name was included on a bronze plaque erected by the CCBC Descendants Group in honor of and in memory of the charter members. That bronze plaque is mounted on the front exterior wall of the church by the entry door. Read the full story of Rev. Timothy's ministry.
Alice Hughes, a descendant of one of the charter members of Cloud's Creek Baptist Church, and the other members of the CCBC Descendant Group have invited ALL descendants of the pioneer members and especially descendants of Rev.Timothy Carrington to attend the annual anniversary celebration at Cloud's Creek Baptist Church on Sunday September 17, 2017. It will be a good opportunity for Carrington descendants to get together this year and to show support for Rev. Timothy's close connections to this church. So let's all try to attend.
A copy of the full information about the anniversary celebration follows below. Alice Hughes asked that we please let them know who to expect at the Anniversary Celebration at the Church, so you may want to RSVP directly to Alice if you plan to attend, or you can let me know and I will forward the information to her.

2017 CLOUD'S CREEK ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND
The 229th anniversary of Cloud's Creek Baptist Church, Oglethorpe County, Georgia, will be observed on Sunday, September 17, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. with a covered dish luncheon following the service. A suggestion is to bring desserts, salads, cold meats, breads, etc., rather than foods that require heating. If you are coming from a long distance, you may prefer to stop by a grocery store deli on your way to the church.
Cloud’s Creek Baptist Church was founded on September 20, 1788, within Olive's Fort about two miles from the present location of the church.
