News and Events for January 7

We welcome Dell Gates today to share the message. Dell is a member of Piney Flats UMC and our district coordinator for Lay Servant Ministries.

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.

SPRC will meet Thursday, January 11 , at 6:30 pm in the Willing Worker Classroom. Team members are: Michael Forrester (chair), Elaine Good, Kathy Hurlbert, Paula Durham, Bobbie Warden, Linda Rader, Carole Miller, Lana Butler, Valerie Altman, and Tony Lundin.

Next Sunday, we will be collecting canned goods and/or monetary donations for the Rockhold Food Pantry.  Please be generous and support this important ministry.
