Holland's Kids
We have so many exciting ways for your family to plug in over the next few months. Please read below and visit Hollandskids.org often for updates & RSVP's!

Children's Church: Our children's church class has been growing! For children's church, children begin in the sanctuary during the 11am service and are dismissed after the Children's Moment. This is a great way for our children to attend our "big church" services, but it allows them to receive an age appropriate lesson during the sermon. We need help for Children's Church. Please check the signup often to help with this class.

Easter Eggstravaganza: Join us on Saturday, April 4 at 10am for a short program, egg hunt, and craft. This event is open to families with infants through 5th graders. We always welcome youth volunteers to help hide the eggs! Check out our website (above) for more info!

4th & 5th Grade Church Lock-in: We will be sending out more information in April to our 4th and 5th grade families. Event will take place on Friday, May 29.

Vacation Bible School: VBS will be June 14-17. We will be announcing the theme at our Easter Eggstravaganza event!

Volunteers: Please check our signup regularly to help fill our open slots on Sunday mornings. We are in need of Children's Church leaders and 4th/5th grade leaders.

Sunday School: In Sunday School this month, our preschoolers are learning that Jesus is the best leader we can follow. Our elementary students are learning about forgiveness. Visit our site to learn more!

As always, thank you for sharing your children with us! They bring so much joy to our church!
Relay For Life

Save the date! Relay for Life of Garner is going to be an all-day Saturday event this year. Come see us on Saturday, April 25 , from 10am-10pm at Lake Benson Park. Plenty of food, games, raffles, entertainment, and more all day long! For more information go to www.garnerrelay.org.
Wednesday Night Live

Wednesday Night Live will not meet until after Easter. Our next WNL meal will be Wednesday, April 15.
Easter Lily Orders
You are invited to help decorate the sanctuary with lilies on Easter Sunday. If you would like to place an order, please fill out the form located in the narthex and place in the offering plate or bring by the church office. If writing a check, make it payable to Holland's UMC and note "Easter Lily" in the memo line. The lilies cost $15 each. The last date to order is Sunday, March 29th.

Stephen Minister Prayer Support

In addition to Communion Sundays, Stephen Ministers are available every Sunday to pray with you before or after church. If you feel led to pray, look for someone with a Stephen Minister name tag who would feel blessed to pray with you!

SAMARITAN'S PANTRY

Altar Flowers 2020

Dates are filling up quickly! If you would like to donate an altar flower arrangement in 2020, please sign up for the Sunday(s) of your choice at the bulletin board outside the church office.
H.O.P.E. Ministry
We are currently in need of winter clothes! Please bring any coats, jackets, gloves, long pants, thick socks, sweatshirts, etc. and place clothing in the H.O.P.E. bin located in hallway outside of church office. 
If writing a check, make payable to Holland's and note H.O.P.E. Ministries .
For more information, contact Lee (lwhitaker7@nc.rr.com) or Cindi Whitaker (cwhitaker7@nc.rr.com).
We have revamped our website!

Same site, new additions!  www.HollandsUMC.org

With our updated site, you are now able to create an account and view an online church directory for our members. Each account must be approved, so anyone outside of Holland's will not be able to view our directory.

In order to get an account, you must request one through our website  (click "Contact Us" and then "HUMC Account Request" and fill out the form)  and wait for approval. You are only able to view the directory by signing in to your account. This way your information is only visible to our Holland's church family.

At this time, if an email address is shared between two or more members of a family, only one name can be associated to that email address. Family members can be added without an assigned email address, but cannot have separate contact information without a separate email account. We are hoping this issue can be solved in the near future.

Once approved, you will receive an email from Churchspring no-reply and the subject line will say "Welcome to the Church Member Directory!". Follow the instructions to complete your account and create your own password. From there you will be able to complete your personal profile to add family members and any contact information you would like your Holland's church family to be able to view.

We hope you all enjoy this new addition and the ability to easily access contact information for your friends here at Holland's UMC!

Please call the church office if you have any additional questions! 919-772-5294
