Alexander County Missional Network End of School Year Celebration of Joy is scheduled for Saturday, May 5th at First UMC in Taylorsville. Our project is the Reading Partners Program in elementary schools. Since this is the same day as our Men's BBQ, the network understands that we will not be able to send any volunteers but they are asking us to provide drinks. We will need as many canned drinks, small bottled drinks, and waters as possible. They are anticipating up to 600 people. Also they are asking all the churches to collect new or gently used children's books to be given out at the celebration. Pastor Dale is encouraging eeveryone to bring books and drinks that we can collect and deliver prior to the celebration.
