Morning Worship, 2/15/09

We continue our series, For the Love of God, this week with an installment titled, Self. Can we love anyone else if we don't love ourselves? Can we be loved if we don't love ourselves? Can we care for others if we don't care for ourselves?

Workcamp Interest Meeting

It's time! Ready...set...let's go on a workcamp!

This Sunday immediately following worship the Mission Committee will host a Workcamp Interest Meeting in the sanctuary. We'll begin to think about when and where we'll go to do spread the Good News!

Last year we stayed at Avondale Pres in Charlotte, NC, and worked in the community feeding the hungry, listening to stories of folks who are homeless, assisting with a daycamp for kids, and other things we can't tell you...unless you go this year.

No commitment required! Come and explore the possibility of letting God change your life on a workcamp! Young and old, skilled and unskilled, male and female. Come!

SUPER Souper Bowl Offering

Thanks to you and the Mission Committee, we were able to raise over $700 this past weekend (in addition to boxes upon boxes of canned food) for the Ronceverte Food Pantry! We shared a sensational meal together and gave thanks to God for our many blessings. The Souper Bowl meal is supposed to be a simple one so that we are reminded of those who do not have enough to eat. With times as tough as they are, hunger is on the rise. But so is generosity.

Jane Gillespie, John Gillespie, and Kay McCoy (of the Mission Committee) did an outstanding job providing an opportunity to give back, and all of you stepped up to the plate, serving God by serving your neighbors in need. Thanks to everyone who contributed, made soup, served drinks, washed dishes, and participated in the meal! When God's people pool their gifts, great things happen!
