Field Trips

Jun 13 FIELD TRIP – Lone Star Flight Museum

​​July12  FIELD TRIP (Thursday) - - Newman's Castle, Bellville, TX
​We plan to carpool from the church leaving about 5:30PM and arriving around 7:00 PM. Belville is located 65 miles West of Houston Texas. Experience the old world charm of Newman’s Castle, a one-of-a-kind custom creation hidden just outside of Bellville in the rolling countryside. The castle features a moat (watch out for gators!), a massive working 3,000 lb. drawbridge with an accompanying portcullis, a chapel, five round corner turrets, a courtyard, and a central keep with a dramatic view of the surrounding lands. A perimeter wall encompasses the castle, ensuring you are safe from oncoming marauders during your visit. We hope to get sunset shots with potentially light painting and or star photography. Cost is $25 per/person (limit of 15) and is payable on the day of the event at this location. We will be the only group there.

The public area includes the Stone Chapel, a reconstruction of a 500 A.D. church in Tomarza, Cappadocia (Turkey), and the English village and Dining Hall complete with cobblestone street. A tour of the facility will begin our fieldtrip there followed by an opportunity to photograph both the outside grounds and some of the inside areas. We will be carpooling from TWUMC.
