ANNOUNCEMENTS

The UMW will meet TODAY in Room 101 immediately following Worship Service to receive your suggestions and to discuss ideas for the UMW. Lunch will be provided. All women of the church are invited to attend.

Members of our FUMC choir will join with those of other churches for the Spirit of America Concert at the Cole Auditorium on Sunday, May 21 at 4:00 pm. Statha Osborne will be the Guest Director for the event. This patriotic community choir rehearses Sunday afternoons at 3:00 pm here in the Choir Room. If you sing with joy and know others who do, please join us!

Give up a day of your time to help the Edwards Family who have lost everything in Hurricane Matthew or give a donation to help rebuild their home in Lumberton. Experienced contractors, plumbers, electricians and everyone who is willing to be the hands and feet of Jesus are needed. Meet at Chestnut Street UMC, 200 East 8th St., Lumberton, at 8:30 am on Saturday, March 18. Questions: Contact Mary Hartsell 910-639-3797.

On Saturday, March 25, the youth are going to Winter Jam 2017 Tour Spectacular in Greensboro. Tickets are $15. WE STILL HAVE ROOM ON THE BUS—SO COME JOIN US! The bus will leave the parking lot at 2:00 pm. Coliseum doors open at 5:00 pm. We will call parents on the way home for the return time. You will need concert ticket money, food money, and spending money.

Ponder this. . . There can be no question but that Church membership has been made too cheap. It has become largely a convention. . . . At present our churches draw and hold the settled and cramp or repel the venturesome, which is precisely the reverse of the New Testament Church. Henry Sloane Coffin
