THANK YOU FOR SHOWING
UP IN HUGE NUMBERS to the MS Youth Pancake Supper this week. It was fun to see the
room so full of people and laughter. It truly felt like a gathering place for
friends and family. Thank you to the Youth who served as buffet servers and
food runners and clean-up crew. Thanks to the parents too who cooked pancakes,
oversaw volunteers and washed dishes. The
Pancake Supper raised $1,950. A small portion of that money will pay for
the food we purchased, but the bulk will be earmarked for MS summer trips to
Raleigh and Massanetta. Thank you EVERYONE for your generous support.
JOY GROUP-The March
JOY Group will gather at the home of Barbara Massenburg on March 14 at 6:00 pm.

for his services as a Private in the Revolutionary War. The original home was
built in 1807 with the kitchen wing added at the end of the Civil War. The home
and land have always been in the Massenburg family. Please let Ann Cobb at email@example.com or 919-847-0820 know of

OUT YOUR ATTIC! The MS Youth Group Yard
Sale is just two months away and we need your gently used furniture,
housewares, athletic equipment and more to help raise money for our summer
trips. The date of the Yard Sale is Saturday, April 12 in the CLC. We
will announce drop-off hours and pick-up schedules as the date draws nearer,
but for now, start spring cleaning and set aside some items for an amazing
cause -- sending Middle School Youth to do mission work in Raleigh and to a
retreat in Massanetta. For more information about what items may be donated,
please contact Amy Donahoo at email@example.com or (919)
IT IS NOW TIME TO
SIGN UP FOR OUR SPRING DINNER GROUPS, lovingly called our Koinonia Suppers. Koinonia
(Koin-no-ni-a) suppers are simply a time for fellowship with other Christians.
What could be more fun? Last fall 64 of our congregation participated in
dinners that were hosted in 8 different homes. Although participation is just a
one time commitment, most groups met multiple times rotating through the
different members of their group. This is a great opportunity to get to know members
of the congregation and to share good food and good conversation. If you are interested in being a part of a
group, please contact Lucy Deeprose at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please let me
know if you would be willing to be a host. The spring dinner groups will
meet in April or May.
are available on a first come-first serve basis for the 2014-2015 preschool
