Changes are a coming! Actually…they're here…The combined Outreach and Witness Committees have separated into Outreach and Evangelism. However, we will continue to work together on upcoming events…SPEAKING of which… our 2nd Annual Car Cruise-In will take place on Feb. 23rd from 11-2:00. This is a HUGE opportunity to meet the participants and ooh-ahh over their beautiful cars! Even if you are not an antique car enthusiast, please stop and support our efforts to show community hospitality. We will be serving pulled pork for lunch and you don't want to miss that!
The Salvation Army will be hosting an appreciation breakfast on Friday, March 1st, for all you ding-a-lingers. Patsy will be contacting you prior to the middle of February for a head count. Thanks again for your support. We're told that our 2 weeks generated $8,178.68. WOW!
God is Good!!
We want to thank the Crafters for making and sending 100 little dresses and boys clothing to Pastor Maude in Haiti. Unless you've been there, you can't imagine how well received these items will be.
We are currently collecting the following items through January to send to Haiti with a medical team from the South Dade UMC: large unopened bottles of multi-vitamins, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Motrin. We're also accepting shoes...nice shoes, tennis shoes, dress shoes and adult clothing. Remember the women there do not wear pants or shorts, just skirts and blouses. Please contact Janet Petro (352-726-5787) if you have questions or want us to pick up your items.
Finally, please join our committee! We need input!! Some of you snowbirds, in particular, have ideas from your northern churches that would benefit us all.
