News and Events for the Week of March 8

Throughout the season of Lent, we will be offering a special Wednesday night study based on the book “Wounds That Heal.”  You are welcome to join at any time. 

Our annual Beans and Bluegrass Dinner featuring the Sullivan East Patriot this Wednesday, March 11 in the Fellowship Hall at 5:30 PM.  The meal is free but donations will be accepted. Please come out and support our young people and get a good dinner.  Please see Lelia Perry if you wish to provide food for this ministry.

There will be a J.O.Y. (Just Older Youth) trip on Friday, April 17, to the Festival of Nations at Dollywood.  If interested in going, please see Sammy Waid (870) 310-1068.

During the season of Lent, our kids will be collecting Change for Children.  So make sure to bring your pocket change to worship so the cans will ring!  This money is given to children’s ministries throughout Holston Conference in the form of grants to local churches.  BCUMC has been the recipient of these grants in the past, so your small change adds up to big ministry!
