It was incredible to be able to attend Sunday School taught by President Carter. It was such a privilege to listen to him discuss his impression of some current events and then a wonderful lesson. We stayed in Columbus, GA the night before and then drove about an hour to get to the church. Columbus has numerous hotel choices. We did not have a problem getting a seat by arriving at the church at 830 am. Sunday School starts at 10 am and lasts for about an hour. You can take photographs of President Carter at the beginning of his lesson. President Carter stays after the church services to allow visitors to have a photograph taken with him. If you don't want to stay after Sunday School is over, you can leave before the main service starts. If you leave, you won't have an opportunity to return later to meet the former President. The Maranatha Baptist Church website lists which days President Carter is scheduled to teach. We also enjoyed visiting President Carter's boyhood home and school. Plains Peanuts, on Main Street, is a nice place to sample and/or buy a variety of peanuts and peanut candies.
