Among those enjoying the fellowship meal after the recent First Baptist Joshua Class fishing outing near Madras are on the left side of the table, front to back, Lloyd Rich, class president Bill Loftin, Chuck Olson and Steve Lee. 


On a recent spring Saturday afternoon at a private lake near Madras, a group of 30 or so men from the Joshua Class at Newnan’s First Baptist Church met for a fellowship outing. 

The group of First Baptist men and guests fished for a few hours, dressed the fish, and enjoyed a fish fry meal together afterward.

As most would say, “It don’t get no better than that,” said Sunday school class member Doug Cantrell.

The class gets together several times a year for food and fellowship, he said. The men also do other community projects as they are needed. 

Don Porter is the Sunday school class teacher and Bill Loftin is the class president. 

The men feel that the fellowship strengthens the class, Cantrell said, and allows the members to get to know each other better.
