Mobile Meals Volunteers Needed

There are invisible people in Greensboro: They are the elderly and homebound who are dependent on others to bring them food for their survival. Their situation is heartbreaking but not hopeless. Thanks to Mobile Meals volunteers, they see a friendly face at least once a day.

Interested in being a part of this hopeful ministry? Christ Church has two Mobile Meals routes that need drivers for approximately 2–3 hours on the four Tuesday of every month. We would ideally have two volunteers for each route, so this would be a good partnering opportunity. There is also a need for substitute drivers. Volunteer today by contacting Dru Hopkins (drucie55@aol.com, 336-292-5597).

One Great Hour of Sharing

I had a friend who, for a time, was a District Superintendent for the United Methodist Church in the Florida Annual Conference. A couple of years after a devastating hurricane ravaged her area, she remarked on the assistance various faith groups offered. Her observation was that some groups, with great publicity arrived with large trucks, worked a few days and left. She was grateful for their presence.

United Methodist Women: Faith, Hope, and Love in Action

Hampton Elementary School is the new local mission project for the UMW. The children who attend this school are precious as are all of God’s children. However, they live in an impoverished neighborhood in Greensboro and attend a school that is one of the lowest performing in the state.

2014 Finances in Focus

2014 was a year of transition at Christ Church. We have a great congregation that has shown real strength through the move of John Bletsch and the passing of Susan Norman Vickers. That strength and commitment to Christ Church is visible through the generosity of our members, both financially and through service.

DR Mission Team News

Please keep in your prayers our Dominican Republic Mission team of five members, Mark Ledford, Randy Watkins, Dave Amos, Scott Willets and Dennis Wilson as they serve the week of February 22 through 28. They will begin building columns for a second floor addition to the church school with our partnering church, Igelsia Evangelica Metodista Libre in San Pedro de Macoris. Randy Watkins and Christ Church answered a calling six years ago when they first started construction on the school with members of the local church. During this partnership, each Summer mission trip has included a Vacation Bible School for 400 children, a medical mission and in 2014 completion of the school's first floor, sidewalks and security gate. Our goal is to erect nine columns this week in order to build the walls during the next trip happening from July 7 to July 13, 2015.

If you feel called to serve with this mission team, we are still accepting willing disciples for a larger mission trip from July 7 to 13, 2015. We hope to continue construction on the second floor, lead a VBS and direct a medical clinic for 5 days in the local community. Many opportunities for all to make disciples for Christ, no experience required, just open hearts and open minds to serve.

Feel free to contact one of the team leaders, Mark Ledford at Mledford@christgreensboro.org or 336-317-1013, or Anna Brown at abrown3308@gmail.com.

It was a good day serving God!
