The Worship and VOW Committees are sponsoring "OPERATION BETHLEHEM CHILD". They have a list of ACHS teenage boys' names and each one will receive a gift bag with the following items in them: BODY WASH, SHAMPOO AND DEODERANT (all for men-no trial size please) and a $20 WALMART GIFT CARD. We would like to fill 25 or more bags. All items need to be brought and put in a provided basket by Sunday, November 18th. Judy Sipe and Pastor Dale will be collecting the gift cards.
We have been invited to a special evening of "Helpful, Healthy Conversations" on November 11th from 3:00-7:00pm at Broad Street UMC, Statesville led by Rev. Dr. Mary John Dye. The conversation is in light of the efforts of the Commission on a Way Forward and the upcoming called General Conference in February, which will deal with matters facing homosexuality and the church. This may trigger additional discussion here at our church for those who are interested. In order for them to be prepared with resources, handouts and snacks we need to let them know how many from our church will be attending. I am planning to go, and if you are interested in going also Iwill need to know by Tuesday, November 6.
Mt. Pisgah Food Pantry is in need of dry or canned beans, jelly and any easy to prepare children's foods. We were told that they can always use personal hygiene/cleaning items such as soaps, washing detergents, toilet tissue, toothpaste. Put any donated items in the box outside the sanctuary and Judy Jones will make sure they get taken to Mt. Pisgah. Thanks for your support!
There is a sign-up sheet for use of the van outside the pastor's office. This will make the van more accessible for everyone's use. Also the new policy is to fill up the gas tank when you are finished and it will be full for the next group's use.
NEW LIFE THRIFT STORE
“Faith, Hope, Love in Action”
Approximately $700 was raised at the New Life Thrift Store's Bag Sale. Some of the items that were not sold are going to the East Coast flood victims. Just another example of being the hands of Christ!!! Holly Campbell, Mt. Bethel UMW, 252-422-2900
