First Tuesday Circle - There will be NO gathering in January.  Our next gathering will be Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at 6:30pm  Location to be determined.

Adult Fellowship - Looking ahead. We will be meeting soon to plan events for 2020 and will then post them on the Adult Fellowship Events Board in the church narthex by the Kitchen.  If anyone would like to help the planning committee or coordinate an event, please contact Tom Turner 7172tomcat@att.net, or Dan Stansell stanseld@bellsouth.net.

January 17 - Clean & Tidy Friday - 10:00am - 12Noon  ~  Clean N Tidy Fridays are 2-hour sessions once a month to do cleaning, painting, small fixes, etc. coordinated by Trustees.  Please sign-up on the sheet in the church narthex if you plan to attend, or contact Tom Turner at email 7172tomcat@att.net   All volunteers are welcome.  Optional Activity for volunteers and those who wish to fellowship will be to gather at Cracker Barrel on Woodruff Road at 8:30 for breakfast prior to the church work session.

January 29 - Beads of Hope  ~  1:00pm

After carefully studying the schedules of those who regularly attend, we have changed our meeting day to the last Wednesday of the month at 1:00 in the afternoon.

Join us as we begin another year of jewelry making from recycled bulletins.  All are welcome – Bring your friends.  No experience needed.  We’ll show you how to roll the beads and design the jewelry.  Everyone can help in some part of the process. The entire line of Beads of Hope jewelry is packaged, individually priced, and displayed for sale on a revolving stand in the narthex next to the glass cabinet. These items can be purchased anytime from Cheryl Turner or Bill Whipple on Sundays or a church office volunteer on weekdays M-F, 10-2.  Funds raised from these sales benefit missions through the United Methodist World Service Fund.  After a year of good sales, we need to get busy and build up our inventory. We now have instructions for making paper beads in various shapes.  We are excited to learn how to make them which will add more variety to our designs.  A BIG THANK YOU to all who supported the World Service Fund Apportionment which is one of the 7 Apportionments that each United Methodist Church is asked to support. Through Kids for Christ Sunday School Class weekly offerings, Beads of Hope jewelry sales, and designated gifts, we met the 2019 goal for Disciples of $3,836.00!!
