Mt. Wesley Akin Celebrates Fall 2012

Mt. Wesley Akin Nazarene held its annual Fall Festival Oct. 6, 2012, at the Bethel Community Center. Below is a gallery of images of video taken at the event. The Fall Festival almost always features a weenie roast, a chili contest, and a pie contest. Most of the time, there’s also a hayride, although inclement weather this year forced its cancellation.

A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, New International Version)
