Family Movie Night
Hunt’s Church will be hosting a family movie night on Saturday, August 20. We will have a cook-out with hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, drinks, and ice cream from 7:30 – 8:30pm. The movie will begin around 8:30pm and will be shown on our front lawn, so bring your blankets and lawn chairs for a relaxing family evening. This month’s movie will be Pixar’s award winning Cars. Keeping with the theme, we are asking people to BYOC (bring your own car) for showing on our parking lot from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.
Papua New Guinea
Congregation member Bill Band has a yen for adventure. A former Chesapeake Bay pilot, Mr. Band is a world traveler, experienced diver, and an award-winning photographer. In November 2015, he and his brother-in-law journeyed to Papua New Guinea, to explore this far-off island once infamous for headhunters and cannibalism.
Papua New Guinea is known, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation, for its “volcanic activity, earthquakes,and tidal waves.” The island’s reputation didn’t discourage Band and Johns.
“I am a SCUBA diver, as is my brother-in-law, and we have dived in exotic locations allover the globe,” he says, explaining his reason for choosing to journey to the second largest island in the world. “We knew Papua New Guinea had outstanding diving; that was the main reason forgoing. We also knew it was remote, primitive, ill equipped for tourists and expensive to visit.”
After researching Papua New Guinea, with its diverse tribes and over 840 languages, Band used an adventure travel agency in Australia to help plan the 20-day trek through a land of isolated villages and rough terrain. Using planes to travel between remote areas of the country, he and his brother-in law traveled by jeep and bus, and a dugout canoe outfitted with an outboard engine. They ate native foods, slept in huts, and explored the Sepik River and its surroundings.
On Saturday,September 17th, Band will share his amazing journey with the Towson community at Hunt’s United Methodist Church. His travelogue begins at 6:45 p.m. and will include a power-point presentation featuring incredible shots of the country and the people of Papua New Guinea. It will also include underwater photographs from his scuba dives off New Britain Island, located just off the coast of Papua New Guinea on the Bismarck Sea, a scene of vicious combat during World War II.
“We were actually diving on the tops of underwater mountains with edges plunging 1500 feet,” says Band. “The coral was virgin, just incredible, and the water perfectly clear.”
A fellowship dinner will be held at 6:00 p.m. at Hunt’s Church, before Band’s program. Reservations are required for the dinner. For more information on the evening’s events and to make a dinner reservation, please call.
