Uganda Mission Trip 2020

Please join us for a “Pounding” for Rev. Greg Smith, his wife, Helen, and daughter, Megan on July 28, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. in the Family Life Center. We will also have ice cream and maybe even some peach cobbler!
If you have never heard of a Pounding, here’s an explanation: The idea of a Pounding dates back to the age of the original Quakers. The custom was established to welcome a new pastor and his family into a congregation. The idea was to give the family a pound of pantry staples...corn, wheat, sugar, butter, etc. It was a sign of hospitality and welcome.
Now, we don’t live in a time of cellars and dry storage. We are more of a coffee and chocolate kind of culture. Help us shower the Smith family with love by bringing “pounds” of pantry staples or gift cards to help them stock up the kitchen in their new home.
An opportunity for growth and learning that you don’t want to miss! We would like to have all 5 generations within our church represented at this training session as we learn how to reach the new generations moving forward and growing stronger as a church.
Please contact the church office at 205-339-5990 or email@example.com if you would like to attend so lunch may be planned accordingly.
