Weekly News & Updates

November 17, 2023

I am excited to report that BOTH the Heating AND Cooling Units in the Choir Room and Sanctuary have been replaced - and I can confirm they are working!

The congregational meeting on Sunday saw the approval of a $30,000 loan through the Presbyterian Investment Loan Program (PILP). There were some questions that were asked after the meeting that, I think, would be great to share answers to - perhaps you, too, have been asking them:

  • The total cost for the 2 HVAC units (the choir room and the sanctuary) is approximately $65,000 in total.
  • The difference between the total and the loan amount is being funded through monies secured by the sale of the church vans in 2021 and the monies from the closing of the preschool.
  • The building reserve fund was not utilized.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday! Please make sure to read below all of the wonderful things going on in the life of our Fellowship Family. Advent is just around the corner!

With gratitude,

Pastor Kathryn

Mission Ministry Team Highlights

A Few Tags Left!

Thank you to all who already claimed tags from the angel tree that supports the students at Claxton Elementary School with Christmas gifts this season. Participants are invited to take an angel from the tree in the Dogwood Lobby and go shopping for the items suggested on the tag by the child. Each child's gift(s), totaling no more than $25-30, should be returned to the tree, unwrapped, by December 10.

Support Backpack Beginnings

Wondering what to do with all of those grocery shopping bags? The Missions Ministry Team collects “gently used” plastic grocery bags for Backpack Beginnings. Please bring any you don’t use to church with you, leaving them in the marked box in the Dogwood Lobby closest to the double doors leading towards the classrooms.

Honor Cards

The Missions Ministry Team is selling Honor Cards in the Dogwood Lobby after worship on Sundays that benefit Greensboro Urban Ministries and UKirk Greensboro during the holiday season.
