-This year's Holston Annual Conference Hands-on Project is providing food buckets for starving people in Liberia. Even though Annual Conference has been postponed, the shipment of buckets will still take place in early June. This year, because of COVID-19, we are doing things differently than in the past. Instead of giving you a list of food items to purchase, we have decided to buy the food in bulk to put in the buckets. We are asking you to help us "purchase" a filled bucket by contributing $25. This includes bucket, lid, food and shipping. Our goal is to send 40 buckets. You may send a check to the church and designate it for Food Bucket. If you prefer to give cash, call Helen McClaren at 731-694-7271 and she will arraign to get the money from you. Church family, we may be experiencing hardship right now, but these people always suffer from lack of food and other necessities that we take for granted. Help us reach our goal of 40 buckets. God bless each of you. - Helen McClaren
-Due to concerns over coronavirus, Camp Wesley Woods will be closed for the summer. We look forward to attending next year!
-We want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in our congregation. We love you, Moms!
-In an effort to keep our congregation as safe and healthy as possible, as well as to follow the instructions of our bishop, we have decided not be having our annual Church Picnic this spring. We are all disappointed, but are looking forward to a time when we can come together again in joy and fellowship (and with plenty of food!).
We love you, church family!
