Touching Davidson County with Love, 2019 edition

Celebrating our 13th year, TDCWL will take place on April 13th. This year, we will be working with the following churches: Coggins Baptist, Faith Church of Midway, First Presbyterian, First Reformed, First Methodist, Friedberg Moravian, Jersey Baptist, Linwood Methodist, Second Reformed, Shiloh Methodist and St. Stephen’s Methodist.

Sign up sheets will at the entrance to the fellowship hall from March 4th-April 3rd.

In addition, on March 25th at 5:30 p.m. you can sign up for a large project such as building a ramp. This will take place in the fellowship hall.

There will be around 40 projects that include the following: building ramps, singing in nursing homes, cleaning up yards, making blankets for the Dragonfly House (for abused children), doing a variety of repairs and construction for our helping agencies and planting gardens.

At the end of the day, each family who is served will receive a box of food and a Bible. We also pray that the people served will feel the love of God through us.

For questions, please contact one of the Steering Committee members. Tobin Shepherd, Debbie Auman, Ray Howell, Kay Albright and Judy LeCroy.

Please pray for TDCWL

Fall Festival 2018.

FBC: I have some really exciting news! A Fall Festival in the church fellowship hall is being planned for Sunday, September 30, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.. We will have the following: a supper consisting of soup and sandwiches for $5.00, a silent and live auction, a bakery shop with yummy treats, and crafts and games for the children. Our goal for this night is to raise money to get our church budget caught up and to have a night of fun and fellowship. I know if we all work together we can raise the funds we need.

I am challenging all members to participate in some way. Every age group will be able to help. For example, our children can save change and bring it the night of the festival. Our youth can give hours of babysitting, yard work, or make crafts to auction. The youth can also volunteer to serve food or help with the crafts and games.

I need the adults to donate items to auction, make baked goods, and/or serve on a committee. Our committees are Food, Games, Advertising, Sweet Shop, and Silent Auction. I will have a sign-up sheet so that we don not have more than one person going to solicit from a business. There will be sign-up sheets in the Sunday School classes, the office, and other places around the church.

This event will be open to the community. I hope you are as excited as I am about this opportunity to erase our church debt and have fun and fellowship! Please remember that no donation is too small of time or money! Every penny counts!

Sincerely, Beverly Fulbright
