Don’t Just Deny Yourself -

Share with Someone in Need

       During Lent we often hear about giving something up.  Lent is also a fine time to share something with someone in need.  On the four Sundays in March (which are also the last four Sundays in Lent), we will be collecting food for needy Kanawha County neighbors.  A portion of the food will go to Heart and Hand Outreach Ministries to assist the needy in the western part of the county, and the remainder will go to Common Grounds, to assist needy households from Kanawha City to the Fayette County line.

       Any nonperishable food would be helpful, but we would particularly like to collect the items listed below.  You are invited to bring any or all of these food items and place them in the tubs which will be provided.

March 4:  green beans, boxed stuffing mixed, and canned pineapple

March 11:  peanut butter, jelly, macaroni and cheese, and any canned fruit

March 18:  canned corn, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, and baked beans

March 25:  canned soup, canned yams (or sweet potatoes), and canned tuna or      
chicken

 

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Us

Those who attended our Groundhog Day party had such a great time that they have suggested a St. Patrick’s Day party.  On March 17 we will have a party beginning with a light supper at 5 p.m.  Traditional Irish-American corned beef and cabbage will be available.  You are invited to bring something to share.  You might choose something Irish, something green, or just something that you happen to really like.  It does not have to be home-made.  If you can’t come in time for supper, come when you can.  We will learn a bit about the Christian significance of St. Patrick’s Day.  We will have games for those who enjoy playing them and those who enjoy watching them. 

 

MORRIS COMMUNITY DINNERS

We are very encouraged by the number of church members who have volunteered to support this ministry. Long term, a ministry like this cannot be successful without the help of many volunteers.   Once again, we feel that these dinners not only blessed our guests but our church members too.


The dinners are not the responsibility of any one team but will be a mission for the whole church.  We hope all members of our congregation will become involved in some way.  If you are unable to volunteer or provide a dessert, we are accepting donations.  It is easy to do.  Just make your check payable to the church, put “Community Dinners” on the memo line, and drop it in the offering plate.  As a mission to serve others, we are stepping out in a “leap of faith”.  We hope you are willing to take that step with us in action and prayer.  Questions?  Contact Debby Sokolosky at 340-552-1192 or at [email protected], or contact Wanda Hymes at [email protected] or 304-543-3783.

 

Knit Wits, Etc.!

Love to knit or want to learn?  Join the Knit Wits, Etc. on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 2:00 to knit, crochet and fellowship in the library.  We plan to work on prayer shawls for shut-ins, preemie blankets for the Ronald McDonald House, dishcloths for Common Grounds’ holiday baskets, and red scarves for Heart Rehab graduates.  We have the materials to get you started and can teach you as we go!

You can also bring your own favorite project to work on and fellowship with us.  Crocheters are welcome too!  If you have any questions, please contact Ruth Ann Stigall or Judy Flynn.
