Dear Church Family,
Please read below for this week's announcements from Shady Grove:
-Marah Bossert is hosting a diaper shower honoring Amber and Josh Lanning on April 18th from 1-3pm at Shady Grove and would like to invite the church to attend. As we cannot be together to celebrate as we used to, we plan to shower the family in a different way. “Drop- in” to the Fellowship Hall to show your love and support and enjoy a quick treat and favor. Please RSVP to Marah Bossert at 423-608-1381. Amber and Josh are registered at Amazon and Babylist.
-Shady Grove is hiring for three positions: Administrative Assistant, Children's Director, and Nursery Worker. If you would like to apply for these positions, please visit indeed.com or drop by the church for an application.
-Treasurer’s Report: The Finance Team reports that general tithes and offerings through March were more than $70,000. Expenses for the same period were $72,000. If you have questions, contact Treasurer Raymond Lindsey or Finance Chair Cynthia Wampler. Your generosity enables our church and its ministries!
-The King Street Committee will meet this Sunday, April 18th, at 10:00am in the Sunday school classroom across from Jason’s office. If you are on this team, please make every effort to attend. If you cannot attend, please contact Earnie Jarnigan.
-The Trustees Team will meet on Sunday, April 25th, at 10:00am in the Sunday school room across from Jason’s office. If you have any questions, please contact Trustee Chair Earnie Jarnigan.
- Are you grieving the loss of a loved one? Do you need help in handling the odd and sometimes hurtful comments of others? Are you unsure if the crazy thoughts you're having are normal? Join us Saturday mornings beginning May 17th at 10 AM in the youth classroom for Griefshare. You don't need to talk if you don't want to. Just come, watch the video, and listen. It will help; we guarantee it.
-Missions: The Koinonia Ladies Bible Study is hosting “Undy Sundays” in April and May. They will be collecting underwear and socks for the children receiving our weekend food bags. We need girls’ panties, boys’ briefs, and socks for ages 5-11. These will be distributed by the school to the parents on the last day of school, May 21st. There will be a collection box in the narthex until May 16. Please help these children get a good start to the summer break.
[Note: Koinonia means Christian fellowship, joint participation, sharing and contributing what one has. When this group formed, they determined to do more than study God’s Word together; they had the passion to make a difference in our community. Since Shady Grove is already providing food bags to Piedmont and Mt. Horeb Schools, meeting other needs lead to the idea of “Undy Sundays.”]
-The Children’s Ministry will be hosting monthly events for families through July of 2021. The event for April will be a Nature Hike and Scavenger Hunt and will be held Saturday, April 24th from 12-2pm in the Field of Dreams. As these events are family-focused, Mrs. Ashley asks that parents, grandparents, or guardians come with each child who attends. We can’t wait to see you there!
-Please keep the following people in your prayers: Jeff Moncier, Frankie Simms, Tim Barker, Kevin Fox, Kyndall DeMaria, Claire Cortozza, Malcolm Cotton, Amy Graves, Christy Bowlin, Hilda Skeens, Lisa Swafford, Brenda Bradley, Kelly and Brandon Langston, Jeff Reece, Robin Boyias, Kenna Clabough, Charles Foster, Travis Hicks, Marilyn Noel, LC and Lois Batson, Mark Gapetz, Cindy Miller, Leandra Puckett, The Powers Family, Jack Glenn, Jan Enoch, Jack Appleby, Tonya Moyers, Sandi Bush, Lon Thornton III, Butch Baxter, and Cody Fox.
We love you, church family!
