Church Wide Notifications:

  • Women's Ministry: The Women's Service Team of our sister churches in the International Churches of Christ have begun a website WomenToday.International to provide greater resources for our sisterhood globally. This includes content many women can find in their first language. They would also like to share this invitation for a Meet & Greet for Widows : This invitation is for widows in our fellowship globally. We would like to invite you to our Online "Meet & Greet" on Saturday, October 17 for 90 minutes, so as to give more time to connect with one another. Because it's challenging to set up a time that fits everyone's time zone globally, we've decided to have TWO separate calls on the SAME DAY:
    • Asia & Australia/Oceania: 10 AM London, UK time
    • North & South America, Europe & Africa: 6 PM London, UK time (1pm EST)
    • Join Zoom Meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82610833153
    • Meeting ID: 826 1083 3153
    • You do not need to RSVP; just join on one of the calls that best suits you. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions (womensserviceteam@gmail.com).

We are in need of volunteers to assist them in distributing food boxes. You must contact me to reserve a slot for this project to ensure we can maintain the CDC guidelines. If you are interested please contact Mike Dames: mikedames@prodigy.net or 704-724-2362. Please wear your HOPE T-shirt when you serve.

MMOG:

  • MMOG Tent City Missions: We, have had the opportunity to meet a pretty incredible couple that has fallen on extreme hard times due to Covid and we are working with them to get out of the tent city and into residence. Right now we have helped place them in a weekly hotel, but the funds will run out in about 2 weeks. Many of you that read this already gave to our tent city project that we had this past Saturday, but I am throwing out a plea and if you can find it on your heart to give $10, $20, $50 or more to help keep them in a hotel longer that would be absolutely fantastic. They are also both working very hard at regaining employment and even better yet, we will be looking at scriptures with them and showing them discipleship!! Pray for Karen & Jonathan
