May 20th, 2019 MONDAY
It’s Memorial Day week, a time when we honor those who have given their lives in conflict for our freedom! I believe Jesus falls in that category! And we have an opportunity to honor Him by sharing our blessings with another church! I’ve spoken of this for the last two weeks in our services—here’s the deal:
Blair Road UMC near Charlotte wanted to come down and provide a picnic for us! They suggested that this could be turned into a fund-raiser for us (and we certainly need the money!). But we have been blessed by churches and people all over this country, people who will never meet/see us face to face! The suggestion was made that the picnic be opened up to the community, and that the proceeds be given to St. John Church of Christ
down Highway 17 toward Wilmington (Their roof is repaired, but the interior remains heavily damaged, and their insurance company is giving them the run-around--sound familiar?!). Blair Road and St. John are most excited about the possibilities, so this is a rough outline of what we (all three churches) are gonna do:
BASIC PLAN for 8 June for 400, and bulk chicken sales-- walk-in only (no tickets!)
8am- Assemble cookers, set up tables, arrange paper and cooking needs, tea, ice.
9am- Marinade chicken; put sides on warmer grills;
10am Begin cooking chicken (30-35 min, 150 degrees internal)
1045am- Send our roadside “agitators” out!
11am-2pm-Serve (Continue until we run out)
2-3pm- Clean up
Blair Road UMC, Mint Hill, NC; St John’s Church of Christ; Hampstead UMC.
PROCEEDS TO: St John’s Church of Christ (DOC)
Blair Road- Chicken, bread, slaw, beans, desserts, banner
HUMC- Mac&cheese, desserts, pig cooker grills, shrimp boil cookers, tables, chairs,
tea, ice, paper products, sauces, bottled water, public information distribution
St John’s- TBD (meeting Monday evening)
COORDINATOR NEEDED!!! I need management help!
Let me know how you plan to help! And God bless you as you serve! Skip

Congratulations! Caroline Bolin graduated from UNC Greensboro on May 10, 2019 with two separate degrees, a BS in Professions in Deafness and ASL (American Sign Language) Interpreting and a BA in Communications. She graduated Summa Cum Laude in BOTH. She “signed” the National Anthem and Alma Mater at her ceremonies. Needless to say mom/dad/family are very proud!
