MISSION’S MESSAGES

Thanks to all who serve in the different missions capacities in our church & community.

Love’s Outreach:  Members of our congregation team up with other area churches to serve a meal to residents in the Cherokee Shores community at Payne Springs on the 3rd Saturday of each month.   Mike M. always gives out his Snack Bags filled with treats to the children attending.  Good job Mike!  There are a great many families who attend each month.

UMM:    The men continue their good work cooking & serving at the ARK  Campus ministries at TVCC Athens & Cedar Lake Nursing Home in Malakoff. Thank you UMM for all your good works.

UMW:  The ladies of UMW “Hands On” project for 2016 will be Layette Kits. In many countries women do not have swaddling clothes with which to welcome their child into the world.  The Layette Kits provide basic needs for their newborns.   The kits will be assembled here at the church and then be sent to the UMCOR Sager Brown Depot in the fall to be distributed globally where needed most.  (see UMW page for complete list of supplies)

Care & Share:  Don’t forget our Care & Share box in the Fellowship Hall.  They are always in need of extra non-perishables for the food pantry.

Prayer Blankets:  Volunteers!  Bring your scissors & come help with this important mission project for our church.  Prayer Blankets are given to those who are in the hospital, those going through surgery or therapy, or anyone who is experiencing an illness who requests one.   Blankets are placed on the Altar during worship services for special dedication so that prayer warriors may tie a knot & say a prayer for the recipient.  Patients report a feeling of being wrapped up in prayer when they receive their blankets.
