WMU News for October 2022

Fall is here and God is beginning to paint the hillside and mountains with colors only He can produce.  I’m so thankful that I live in an area where I can see God at work in His creation with changing seasons.  Man cannot do that, even tho’ he thinks he can.  What a mighty God we serve!!

This Sunday, October 2nd, we kick off our Saturate, USA/Share Jesus Without Fear project with a church-wide luncheon and “packing party”! Everyone is invited to stay after church and share a sandwich and fellowship with each other.  Then we will pack bags with just three items:  a Jesus video DVD, a pamphlet regarding salvation and an insert about our church.  We need as many bags as we can pack to supply those who will go out Sunday night distributing this vital information.  We invite all of you to be a part of this sharing and saturating our community with the good news of Jesus Christ.

Also, this month, we are highlighting our local Cherokee Food Bank and our Lions Club and the work they do in helping those in our community who need help with basic food needs.  We will not have a one Sunday special offering, but I encourage everyone to include, in addition to your tithe to the church, an offering designated for the food bank.  This offering in the hands of dedicated Christian men and women will be a blessing to many and will show the love of Jesus Christ.

And last, but not least, it’s Christmas Shoebox time!!  Another year has rolled around {quickly} and the boxes will be available to you by mid-October.  Collection dates are November 14-21, so we would like to have our boxes filled and back to church by November 13 and no later than Nov. 16th. The shipping fee, like most things, has gone up to $10.00/box.  So, pray about how many boxes you can pack; online packing is available, but the shipping fee is the same.

Such a busy month but loads of opportunities to serve.  Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are His making, created in Christ Jesus for good works…” Saved to serve, so jump right in and get involved in your church today.

God bless, Helen

We are delighted to announce that the AFBC Titus 2 Women’s Ministry Team is hosting a women’s conference for our church and community on Friday, April 27th and Saturday, April 28th.  Sheila Womble, of Planting Seeds to Trees Ministries from Cairo, GA, will be sharing her personal testimony and speaking on the Overflow of God’s Love in our lives as women!  Her guest Malorie Whitley, will be leading worship for the event.

We are seeking volunteers and women from our church who may feel led to share their personal testimony during this event.  We are encouraging you (women and men) to begin praying for this event; that women will attend with open hearts and that God will use both Sheila and Malorie for His glory through the Overflow conference.

We will have a sign-up sheet posted for those who are interested and pre-registration packets in the lobby of our church.  There is also an online registration option found through Facebook.  Cost for attendance is $15 each or two attendees for $10 each as we would like to encourage each attendee to bring a guest!  Food and child care will be provided for women who attend.   Please contact any of the Titus 2 Women’s Ministry Team if you have any questions or would like to volunteer your time or your testimony!
