-Food Buckets for Liberia is this year’s Holston Annual Conference Hands-On Mission Project. Due to ongoing Covid restrictions, we will again ask for money donations to purchase the food. Cost to fill 1 bucket, including shipping, is $25.00. Please help us meet our goal of 40 buckets. We will accept donations through May 23. Make check payable to SGUMC and write Missions: Food Bucket in memo. If paying with cash, put in envelope, write Missions: Food Bucket on envelope and drop in offering box. Together with other churches, we can be part of something bigger than ourselves and BIG is needed more than ever this year as the world recovers from this pandemic. What we do to help others, we do for Christ.

- 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 Sunday evenings at 5 PM 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.
