Health & Wellbeing Program March 16

Posted

On Monday evening, March 16, the Health and Wellbeing Ministry will sponsor an event focused on whole-person wellness, 5:30-6:30pm in the church.  The short presentation and large and small group discussions will invite us to take stock of what we are doing now, and may want to do going forward, to live healthy, meaningful, happy lives.  On Sunday March 8, we will provide a Wellness Inventory (electronic and hard copy available) for individuals (or families!) to complete.  Whether or not you plan to attend the evening discussion (please bring your completed inventory with you), you may find the process of exploring the inventory enlightening, helpful, and fun. The ministry will continue to sponsor activities throughout the year to help us keep our wellness wheels round and rolling!  Questions?  Contact Amy Webb or Lexie Johnson.

Supplies Needed for Medical Mission to the Dominican Republic

Posted

A medical mission team from All Saints Church in Hilton Head is planning a trip to the Dominican Republic in April to assist the needs of La Barquita. They have requested crayons and color books for the children to use while they await their various medical appointments. They would like 8 pack jumbo crayons and color books-not activity books. (The English instructions are difficult for the children.) The Hispanic Ministry team has placed a box in the narthex to collect these items. Please consider making a donation.  As you can imagine the expenses for supplies for a medical mission trip are significant. If you are inclined to make a monetary donation make your checks payable to HCFM and write medical mission trip in the memo line.

Hospitality Hosts Needed

Posted

If you enjoy the time of fellowship after worship each Sunday, then consider signing up to be a host. This provides an opportunity to engage with fellow parishioners and to widen the friendships among us.

     The hosts provide their choice of snacks, which may include: fresh fruit, breakfast bread, cheese, hard boiled or deviled eggs, cookies, raw vegetables, nuts, goldfish….. The church provides lemonade mix, ice, water, cups and napkins.  Carrying the bread and wine to the altar with the ushers following the offertory is an option for the hosts.  The sign up sheet is in the narthex on the bulletin board on the wall to the left of the front doors as you leave.  Be a host with an old friend or a new friend.  If there are enough volunteers, we will have snacks EVERY Sunday!  Questions?
