Room in the Inn
Our guests from Room in the Inn are in NEED of gently used or new coats size large and extra large! If you have men’s winter clothing, sweat pants and sweatshirts or would like to purchase new men’s underwear and white socks for our guests, you may put them in the white cabinets in the 5th & 6th grade class room at the Historic Site or in the bins in the Narthex at the new site. Thank you! Questions, contact Kathy Heard.
Pastor Donna is going to be leading an Advent Study for the next 4 weeks at 9:15 a.m. in Vaden Hall. If you would like to be a part of this study, please pick up your study book on the front pews this morning and sign up on the attendance sheets. Additional books can be ordered if we run out. The cost of the student books is $8.50 and will be collected on the first day of the study which will be November 23rd.
The Christmas Star, a Christmas drama presented by our youth on Sunday, Dec. 7th at 6:00 p.m. stars roughly 25 of our Epworth youth! The play centers around a Christmas Lighting Company trying to find a star for their TV commercial. We hope everyone will come enjoy the show and then stay for a dessert reception immediately following the play in the Narthex.
The Christmas Cookie Sale will be held on December 14th in the Boxley Classroom and in Vaden Hall at the Historic Site. The Youth will be hosting this event this year and are in need of Christmas tins to place the cookies in. They need to be rust-free, dent-free and without any advertising. If you have any you are willing to donate, please place in the designated bins in the narthex.
Helping Hands is a Christ-centered ministry that serves the needy in Williamson county and beyond. They provide food, clothing, furniture, household items, as well as, monetary help in buying prescription drugs, paying rent, or utility bills.
