Farm volunteers needed
David Goforth says sweet potatoes will be harvested Saturday, September 23, unless the soil is too wet. Sweet potatoes are a good source of nutrition and have been a major crop since McGill first began the garden. That Saturday is also a UNCC football concession day. Many who would normally volunteer at the Farm will be working the game, so we need others to step forward and fill the gap. If you are considering volunteering at the Farm, sign up today following worship.
Nursery volunteers needed
The nursery is one of the first places many visitors see. Help us make a good impression by volunteering for one Sunday every other month (or being an alternate). We have a real need for the baby and the toddler rooms for both services. See Jordan Plemmons for the 8:30 a.m. service or Melinda Wolanin for the 10:45 service.
Dinner at Captain Steve’s
If you are interested in going to Captain Steve’s Seaford on Thursday, August 24, please sign up on sheets in your Sunday School class or call Susan Porter at 704-576-0322. You can meet at the church at 5 to ride the bus or be at the restaurant at 5:30 to eat.
