What a snow/sleet storm we had this past weekend! Hopefully, you survived without any

problems other than “cabin fever.” Thankfully, we had no major power outages. We

ap-preciate Donnie Lakey for snow removal from our parking lots and the parsonage

drive-way. Thanks also to those who shoveled our sidewalks to get us ready to re-open on

Monday. Anticipating you will receive the newsletter before Sunday, January 31, I want to

remind you we are having a Fifth Sunday Brunch sponsored by our worship team to bring

together participants from both worship services. The brunch will be provided, so “y’all

come.” Try to have your food and be prepared to start our program at 10am. There will

be a presentation from our Study Committee on future building expansion designed to

make our facilities on the sanctuary side of Main St. handicapped accessible and to

im-prove and expand our children’s ministry and other ministries. The Administrative Board

wants to get a reading from you regarding whether to move forward with this project. I

hope you will join us in the Family Life Center. Be in prayer for the Honduras Medical

Mis-sion team under the direction of Dr. Joel Edwards Jan. 29 – Feb. 7. Our Ash Wednesday

Service to begin Lent will be at 7pm on February 10. The Choir will minister in music and

there will be no Wednesday night meal. On Sunday, February 14 we will celebrate

Valen-tine’s Day. The United Methodist Men will host their wives and widows of deceased

for-mer members for breakfast at 7:30am. At worship we will recognize long-term

marriag-es, have a message to strengthen marriages and offer a renewal of marriages vows at the

conclusion of the worship services


On Sunday, Feb. 21 our Hand Bell Choir accompanied

by Frank Voltz, harpist, will share special music at the 10:55 am service. On Sunday Feb.

28 the Children’s Choir and Puppets will share their talents at both services. I hope to see

you each Sunday and often in between as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the

trans-formation of the world and our community.

Our minister, Rev. Glenn Myers asked us if we would be interested in writing an article for the church bulletin called "Miracles Grow" because there have been so many wonderful miracles that have hap-pened since we began "Deep Roots". So here we go! When forming Deep Roots of course, the first item was where do we locate our garden? Almost immediately two individuals, Marie Collins and Joe Harris stepped forward and gave us permission to use their land for our garden. With two choices, it was diffi-cult to make a decision. We finally went with both! "Start small!" was the strong advice we were given; however, we listened for God's direction and realized that God does not do anything small!

The roller coaster ride these last two years has been just amazing! Two young boy scouts, Warren Foster and Joseph Cartner working for Eagle Scout badges, built raised beds, a lean-to for our Clement Garden shed, picnic tables and a beautiful sign. Our church community and the entire Mocksville Community donated tools, hay, fertilizer, hoses, loads of mulch and now seeds! This ride has been beyond our dreams and imaginations! Tom Brown from Southern States has given us, time and time again, dis-counts on items needed for our gardens and last week Lowes Home Improvement store donated enough seeds to keep us going for years to come! Miracle upon miracle has abounded for us. Whenev-er an issue arose. It seemed that God would provide an answWhenev-er- sometimes instantly! When we wWhenev-ere wondering who we could get to build our raised beds, the phone rang the very second I was praying about it, and Warren Foster's mom asked if Warren would be allowed to build our raised beds for his Eagle Scout project. It has been that way right along. If we trusted in Him, he would answer! Our amaz-ing young youth group has constructed shelvamaz-ing in our Storehouse garden shed and are now plannamaz-ing to build us additional raised beds starting in February. You all have also supported us beyond our wildest dreams with our dinners and other functions. We have tried to keep God as our main focus here to see what it is that HE wants us to do! Sometimes we are on the mark and sometimes we miss by a lot, but our desire to follow his direction has never wavered. God is good, God is kind, God is gracious, God is generous, God is fair, God is Love! We humbly thank all of you for this amazing opportunity!

Great marriages don’t happen by accident! A Weekend to Remember is a two and one-half day getaway weekend to be together as a couple to invest in and strengthen the foundation of your marriage, no matter how strong or fragile it is. A Weekend to Remember is not a counseling session, and you are not asked to participate in small groups. You receive Biblically centered marriage principles with interactive activities that you can take home and apply to your daily lives in order to strengthen your marriage. This event is sponsored by the organization, Family Life, and you can find additional information by accessing the website www.familylife.com/weekendtoremember 2015/about. The Family Ministries Committee has been encouraging attendance for the upcoming Weekend to Remember event being held 2/19/16 through 2/21/16 at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel in Asheville, NC. You may register and make hotel reservations via the website. We are also happy and excited to inform you that there is another local opportunity on 6/10/16 through 6/12/16 at the Embassy Suites on 5400 John Q. Hammons Drive, Concord, NC if you are unable to attend the one in February. You may get further information on this event at the above website also.

The WHEN ministry has taken off! Members of this team have already prepared hot meals for the

resi-dents of the Scottish Inn and Lakewood Motel on Thursday evenings since January 14th. That is an incred-ible accomplishment since members just met that Monday, January 11th and three days later were deliv-ering hot meals to hungry, needy folks. Many thanks go to Dave and Diane Salmon for taking on three empty Wednesday night meals in a row that no other group was hosting. Extra food was prepared at these meals and the reserve food was warmed the following day and packed in to-go boxes along with desserts, fresh fruit, water (milk items for the children) then delivered to both locations. Two generous donations of warm knitted toboggans and mittens and coloring books and crayons were made to give to these children just in time for them to put to good use during the past winter storm. Pastor Glenn went with the team to deliver meals and witnessed first hand the joy and appreciation the recipients of these meals demonstrated.

The goal of the When ministry is to provide food, hygiene items, fellowship and prayer for families who are facing difficult living conditions. The Thursday meal is an additional meal these families receive. Krys-tal Dumas with JUST HOPE has other churches and groups provide a meal for them on Tuesday evenings. Plans are being updated with each meeting and will be shared with congregation members. Many thanks go to all of the WHEN team members who happily give of their time and talents for this new ministry. For more information please contact Jerry Banks, 336.998.8898. WHEN meets Monday, February 1st at 6:30 PM in the Conference Room followed by an Evangelism Committee Meeting in the Conference Room at 7:00 PM.
