Drive By Celebration for Melinda Ivey

A Blue Christmas Service

A reflective time of worship and prayer.  The holidays are not always “merry and bright” for everyone.  Come to find the hope and peace you are seeking or to simply stand in solidarity with those who find the holiday season difficult.




This is a digital version of the Stewardship article that will be in the newsletter!

Benefit Dinner And Silent Auction For Michael Frank Champine

Michael Champine was born February 18, 2011, weighing in at 9 lbs, 7 0z. At 10 months, he was still only 18 lbs.  He does not gain weight like a normal baby should or have BM’s like he should. Most of this is caused by GI issues but there isn’t much that can be done.  He is just considered failure to thrive and acute abdominal issues along with a severe allergy to milk. He has been hospitalized 3 times and on one of those occasions the parents were told he possibly wouldn’t make it.

A few months ago they inserted a feeding ‘tube. The formula for this is $50 a can. As of Jan 1st, 100% of medical bills and prescriptions have to be paid by the parents. He goes to the DR at least once a week. We are doing the dinner
and auction with all proceeds going to the family for bills, prescriptions, gas, etc.

Spaghetti Dinner: $5 for Adults

Many items to choose from in the Silent Auction

Where: Kipling United Methodist Church

Date: Saturday, March 31st, 2012 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Please come and show your support for this family anyway that you can.  You can download the flyer here as well.

Ash Wednesday – One Solitary Life

He was born in an obscure village.

He worked in a carpenter ship until he was about thirty.

He then became an itinerant preacher.

He never held an office.

He never had a family or owned a house.

He didn’t go to college.

He had no credentials but Himself.

After preaching three years, the public turned against Him.

His friends ran away.

He was turned over to His enemies and went through a mockery of a trial.

He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.

While He was dying, His executioners gambled for His clothing, the only property He had on Earth.

He was laid in a borrowed grave.

Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race.

All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed,

All the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned,

Have not affected the life of man on the Earth as much as that
