Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry
The Food Pantry is in need of a volunteer on Tuesdays, 9:30 a.m.– 12:00 p.m. to help unload the Second Harvest Food Bank Truck, assist clients to their cars after they have made their food selections and help with clean up at the end of day. Being able to lift boxes and containers that weigh up to 50 pounds is a requirement. Anyone interested should contact Debbie Richards at 704-962-4874.
Small Groups
The UMW Logos
The UMW Logos next meeting is Tuesday, August 6th at 7:00 p.m. in the Youth Lounge. Lynn and Perry Brittain will be our guest speakers. They will be talking to us about Multiple Sclerosis. Lynn was diagnosed with MS in 2012. She will be taking part in a 60 mile bike ride in the early fall to help raise funds to free the world of this crippling disease. Lynn and Perry were active members of HUMC for many years. We welcome anyone who would like to come hear them share about their journey since Lynn’s diagnosis. 
Disciple Bible Study
Disciple Bible Study is transformative. The 34 week study is incredibly effective in shaping lives through interaction with the Word of God and each other. I hope to have enough people to sign up for this study so that we have two classes, on Sunday afternoons from 5:00-7:00 p.m., and on Wednesday evening. We will meet on August 18 at 5:00 p.m. to form classes. This will be an information session designed to give you the information you need to make this deep commitment. Please email Pastor Paul at  pthompson@wnccumc.net  to express your interest in learning more.
