Meet Our New Members: Callie & Robert Shown

 |  Meet Our New Member  |  Mary Splawn

Have you met Callie and Robert Shown? Callie and Robert joined our church on Sunday, August 21. We hope you'll get to know them a little better through this latest "Meet Our New Member" blog, and that you'll have the chance to connect with them one Sunday in worship. 

Tell us about your family. We met at Alabama and have been married 15 years. We have two great kids - Ollie (1st grade) and Bri (4K) - and two sweet dogs - Sam and Ayrton. We love to spend time outdoors whether we’re camping, working in the garden, riding bikes, or hanging out at the pool. We also love to go out and see who can eat the most sushi!

Where do you work? Robert works at Eaton Aerospace and Callie works at Merrill Lynch.

What led you to Mountain Brook Baptist Church? We were looking for a place where our kids had a sense of belonging and were excited to go to church.

What is your favorite Bible story or verse, and/or your favorite hymn or praise song? Robert - Philippians 4:13, Callie - "Nothing But the Blood"

What is a fun fact other people may not know about you? One of our favorite trips was backpacking through Glacier with our final stop at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Canada; apparently not a lot of people do that so all the kids working the desk took turns trying on our backpacks when we checked in. We were also lucky to find a ride back to our car once we crossed the border!
