Are you a One – that is, single for whatever reason? Then Holy Cross Faith Memorial’s ‘One-ders Ministry’ is for you. Sometimes a ‘One’ just doesn’t want to go to an event alone – now you are not alone. Here is a calendar of upcoming events and contact numbers for group events.
A Columbarium Committee has been established and the Vestry has approved our plan and policy for the Columbarium. If you are interested in being a part of the first phase, please contact the church office to get a copy of the policy and application. Applications, along with payment, should be received by April 30, 2014. Questions may be addressed to any one of the committee members: Bob Thompson, Chair, The Reverend Sandy Moyle, John Womack, Wally Fortuna, Bobby Buffington and Rob Ruark.
On Monday evening, May 12, from 5:30-8 pm in the chapel, HCFM will host Natalie Bankowski, Program Director for the Alzheimer’s Association of SC. She will present two topics: “Know the Ten Signs: Early Detection Matters” and “Communicating with Those with Alzheimer’s.” The first topic will focus on normal signs of aging vs signs of Alzheimer’s, and types of dementias. The second topic will focus on understanding the behaviors and will provide tips: how to approach and speak with those with Alzheimer’s, things to do and not do. Stories and personal experiences will be part of the evening. This session is free; a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association will be accepted. A light supper will be provided. Please register with Suzy Jayroe by May 5. If you have questions, call Amy Webb (Health and Wellbeing ministry), 235-3466.
Becoming and Growing as Episcopalians – Tuesdays through May 6th we will offer an Inquirer’s Class on what it means to be an Episcopalian. This class is certainly for confirmation preparation, but is appropriate for anyone who wishes to deepen his or her understanding of the Episcopal faith. Led by our clergy, Rev. Sandy Moyle and Rev. Wil Keith, we will be looking at the various tenants of our faith as set forth by scripture, our Book of Common Prayer and other resources. Classes will be held on Tuesday nights at 6:00 pm in the chapel. Questions? Call the church office at 843-237-3459.
The April Social Night Out will be held on April 26th at the Inlet Point Clubhouse beginning at 6pm. The hosts for the evening are Madeleine Ritchie, Betsy Marlow, Betsy Cole and Nancy Bracken.
