September 8,9 – "Who Cares? We Can't NOT Care"
Please join us – and bring a friend!
I've had one eye on the weather reports and one eye on my grand-dog who evacuated to our house with my daughter and son-in-law ahead of Hurricane Dorian. It seems ironic that we are facing another storm on our coast just as the Season of Creation starts up. Over the next few weeks, I will be preaching a series called "Who Cares?" When we consider how humans treat the natural world, it can seem that no one really cares, but that is far from the truth. This weekend, we will learn how God cares for all of creation and in the following weeks, we'll discover why we should care and how we can care for the great gift of this world. I pray that you and your family will be safe and that we will see you in worship.
Woodmont continues to care for children at Moss Street Elementary School by providing food for the weekend to those who are uncertain when their next meal is coming. We are looking for helpers to carry these bags from the church building to the school. This is a great way to offer your service in the community. A signup sheet is on the closet doors of the fellowship hall near where the computer table sits for worship.
"As our culture grows more aware of the harm toxic stress has on children's lifelong learning and mental and physical health, the church must follow suit. There is a marvelous opportunity for the gospel to impact the lives of children, but we must first learn how trauma operates so we can start to change our approach." -Rev. Peter Dodge, Reidsville Alliance Church.
Open to faith leaders including clergy, lay ministers, childcare providers, Sunday School teachers, and more. Provided at no cost to attendees. Limited spots available. Breakfast will be served starting at 8:30am. This workshop ends at noon. RSVP TO CYNTHIA AT THE ROCKINGHAM COUNTY PARTNERSHIP FOR CHILDREN AT 336.342.9676 OR email@example.com.
Safe Sanctuaries Training Opportunity
A Safe Sanctuaries Training will be offered on: SUNDAY, September 29, 2:00pm - 4:30pm at Mission First in Fellowship Hall.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE: Anyone in ministry with children, youth, and vulnerable adult populations; members of the Board of Trustees and S/PPRC; anyone who would like to learn a bit more about Safe Sanctuaries.
TRAINING WILL INCLUDE: the best practices recommended by the WNC Conference of The United Methodist Church and some practical tips to help your church or ministry context provide spaces of safety and grace.
WHY DO WE NEED TRAINING: Every church in the WNCC is required to have a Safe Sanctuaries policy with accompanying procedures. Part of the policy and procedures requires that you and other leaders in your church be trained regularly on best practices and emerging new trends as it relates the prevention of child abuse and safe practices for ministry.
THERE IS NO COST FOR THIS TRAINING AND EACH LOCAL CHURCH CAN BRING AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CHOOSE TO BRING.
If you want to attend, or have any questions, please contact Rev. Michelle Foster-Beckerleg at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 25.
Help bring RECYCLING back to Reidsville!
Newspaper article in Rockingham Now.
A public service announcement from the City of Reidsville: "With Waste Management's recent decision to no longer provide this service to Reidsville City residents, the City has negotiated with Foothill Waste Solutions to offer a voluntary curbside recycling service for our citizens. However, a minimum of 400 Reidsville City residents must sign up prior to September 10th directly with Foothill Waste Solutions before the curbside recycling option can be offered. Curbside recycling cannot be offered by Foothill if less than 400 Reidsville citizens subscribe to this service. Subscribers will be charged $9.50 per month and you will be billed quarterly. Glass will not be collected by Foothill. To subscribe to this service or to learn more about it, call Foothill Waste Solutions at (336) 871-4055. Thank you."
(Many of you have asked me: "What are we going to do about recycling, it's so difficult to throw it in the trash now!" So, I wanted to be sure our members have an opportunity to help bring recycling back to Reidsville ... I have signed up, Jonathan)
The Big Silence: A 4-Day Mostly Silent Retreat, January 19-22, 2020
Eight years ago I began leading this retreat in January to help people start off the new year in a spiritual way. Some of you have asked me about attending. Only a few spaces are left. Here is the link to our website: www.TheBigSilence.org
