TWO FUMC MEMBERS JOINED USO TOUR IN SWITZERLAND & GERMANY! Through a rare opportunity this month, Dr. Brandon Goff, Assistant Professor of Music/ Director of Entertainment Music Industry Studies and Lambuth student, Nick Culbreath were invited to tour and participate in USO shows and worship services for American soldiers and German citizens.

Brandon Goff

Brandon’s Story: The first stop of our tour was in Lenk, Switzerland. There we led worship for a military men’s retreat. It never ceases to amaze me how humble and spirited a room full of hardened military men can be. The men at the retreat inspired us with both their service to God and their country. After the Lenk conference, we had two days off, so we spent some time in Heidelberg, Germany. Heidellberg sits right on the river Neckar and the city is overlooked by a stunning castle. We visited the castle, shopped the city and truly enjoyed our brief down time there.

and God’s ability to move throughout our different nationalities. The next day, we were blessed to provide entertainment for the USO at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. This hospital is the main trauma center for soldiers wounded overseas. The event was put together to honor the doctors and nurses as well as the soldiers that had come through the center. Several stars were on hand including Adam Duritz (Counting Crows), Robert Klein, Jeffrey Ross and others. While there, we were able to perform with Adam Duritz which was of course a big treat for us. Getting to meet so many soldiers that had suffered so much and to have them thank US for playing for them, was humbling beyond words. Here is a link that takes you to the USO blog that discusses this particular event: The days following the USO were an absolute whirlwind. We had a concert at Frontline Church in Rammstein that was followed immediately by a show in Weisbaden. Both audiences were absolutely fantastic and kept us pumped, even though by this point in the tour, we were all beginning to tire. The crowd in Weisbaden was heavily German, so we had to work with a translator for all of the verbal crowd interaction. While this provided a unique challenge, the excitement and spirit

Our next concert was at IBC Church in Stuttgart, Germany. There, we led worship for a mixed crowd (German and American) and again, we were touched by the reception

Music Notes EROICA ENSEMBLE SERIES RETURNS TO LAMBUTH UNIVERSITY Eroica Ensemble Announces Jackson Concerts for the 2011 season. All three ensembles will be performed at the R. E. Womack Chapel at Lambuth University. The Eroica Ensemble will perform their first concert on Sunday, March 20, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. featuring Haydn’s Symphony No. 103 in E-Flat Major. Maestro Gilbert says, "We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Lambuth University. We are so grateful they opened their doors for another successful season.” Additional Eroica Ensemble performances at Lambuth are scheduled for April 10th, and June 5th of 2011. The Eroica concerts are free, and the public is warmly invited.

page 6 of the crowd made it all work in the end. Our final show was back in Rammstein and then began the long trip home.

Reflections from Nick:

Nick Culbreath

When asked how he learned of the USO opportunity, Nick shared that “Dr.Goff approached me one Sunday after church and asked me if I would like to accompany him and his band to Germany for a tour. I happily accepted the offer. It was an absolutely fantastic opportunity.” Both Brandon and Nick play guitar each Sunday in the 9:00 a.m. First Awakening Band and for Nick, the best part of the trip was,”getting to see a glimpse of what it is really like touring with a band overseas. I think it was the best real world music industry experience I could have ever had.” What was especially meaningful was “seeing Heidelberg on our only free day out of the whole trip. The history there is incredible with the castle looking over the city. It is a very good reminder of the mixture of new and old.” From sledding down mountains in Lenk, Switzerland to getting to know everyone on the tour, Nick is thankful for the great group of guys he worked with and appreciative of “ the opportunity of a lifetime.”

GIFTS OF LOVE by Bobbie Mays

Thirty years ago, Dr. John Nelson, a well known Jackson dentist (now retired) and longtime FUMC member surprised his daughter-in-law, Lou Ann, with a custom made dollhouse. Not only did he make one for her to enjoy but since then he has made more than thirty-five! John’s wife, June, who loved dollhouses, was a beloved volunteer at FUMC who faithfully worked for several years overseeing the nursery. After she passed away, in her loving memory, John donated a beautiful two-story Victorian dollhouse (pictured below) to the church nursery.

Last Friday morning, on that freezing twenty degree day, John drove onto the portico to see if someone could assist with holding the doors open. Reaching into his vehicle, he unloaded an amazing, red sided, white trimmed dollhouse. As a Christmas gift, he had received a dollhouse kit and knew that this was one he wanted to make and give to the nursery… once again. With seventy plus hours of work, John even added the miniature details of dainty curtains, wall papered rooms, crown molding and a look of wood floors. For all the many smiles and fun imagination you have brought to lots of children (and adults), thank you, John, for your special gift to FUMC!
