News and Events for September 24

Today in worship, we join in Freedom Sunday with the International Justice Mission (IJM) and thousands of churches around the world to unite and proclaim that slavery still exists and that we as believers must lead the charge to end it. We will consider the reality of modern-day slavery, God’s heart for justice, and an invitation to our congregation to get involved to end this injustice. If you would like to give a special offering, make your check payable to Bluff City UMC and put End Slavery in the memo line. We will pass along 100% of what you give to IJM. IJM is a global, non-denominational Christian ministry that protects the poor from violence in the developing world, including working to end slavery. For more information about IJM, visit http://www.ijm.org.

Halloween is fast approaching.  Trunk or Treat will be on TuesdayOctober 31 at 6:00 PM in the parking lot.  Donations of candy and/or monetary donations are needed.  There will a box in the Information Center in which to put your donations of candy.  If writing a check, please put “Halloween” on the memo line and put with the regular offering.

Holston Habitat for Humanity needs volunteers for several projects.  There are several build projects taking place across the Tri-cities and especially need help on Thursdays and Fridays.  They are also needing volunteers at the ReStores located at 750 East Main Street in Kingsport and 3201 Kimberly Court in Johnson City.  If you are interested, please contact Holston Habitat for Humanity at HolstonHabitat.org or call Mandy Penz at the Habitat office (423) 239-7689, ext. 800.

Volunteers are needed to drive the van on Wednesday nights. The more who volunteer, the less you would need to be available to drive/ ride passenger. We need two adults every Wednesday night. Also, Matthew Martin is in need of a ride from Volunteer Parkway. If you or someone you know lives in the area and can pick him up, that would be incredibly helpful. Please let Taylor Lee know at (423)956-2919.

News and Events for September 3

On Communion Sundays, usually the first Sunday of each month, we collect a special offering to share with our brothers and sisters at the Robinson Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church.  Claiming our oneness in Christ Jesus and to help bridge the racial divide in our culture and because of our shared Wesleyan heritage, we support that congregation with a gift of $100 per month. During Communion, you can bring your offering forward. You can make a check payable to Bluff City UMC and write “AME Zion” in the memo line.

Our second Sunday of each month is Invite A Friend Sunday. We would like each person who regularly attends worship to be praying specifically for someone and to invite them to come to worship that Sunday. Of course, you can invite a friend to come any time, but we hope you will make a special effort for Invite A Friend Sundays.

Next Sunday, September 10, we will be collecting canned goods and/or monetary  donations for the Rockhold Food Pantry.  Your generosity is very much appreciated.

Volunteers are needed to drive the van on Wednesday nights. The more who volunteer, the less you would need to be available to drive/ ride passenger. We need two adults every Wednesday night. Also, Matthew Martin is in need of a ride from Volunteer Parkway. If you or someone you know lives in the area and can pick him up, that would be incredibly helpful.
