Dear Church Family,
Please read below for this week's announcements from Shady Grove:
-Many of you know Jeff Moncier, a former pastor who has struggled these last few months with Covid. If you would like to send him a card, his new address is:
3209 Bristol Highway
Johnson City, TN 37601
- Holston Home Children’s Home 5th Sunday: This Sunday is our first 5th Sunday of 2021. What better way to express our Christian faith than to invest in the lives of children whose lives have been broken and who look to the church to help them become whole again! If you would like to give towards Holston Home, you can mail a check to the church or drop it in the offering box this Sunday.
Missions: We will be collecting Hygiene Kits for UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, during February. These kits are given out during disasters such as hurricanes and floods. By replacing stock now, we are helping UMCOR be ready when the next disaster strikes. Due to Covid restrictions, you may “purchase” a kit by donating $15.00 (includes $2 for toothpaste and shipping) or you may bring the items plus $2 to the church in a grocery bag (see list below.) Last year, we supplied 108 kits. Let’s see if we can do it again!
God bless each of you for your faithful care of those in need.
