Annual Stewardship Campaign 2019
The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7

The Outreach Committee thanks you for your generosity!!
Thank you for filling your fish banks!!
Because you took your banks home, filled them and brought them back, we collected $406.66 in coins, bills, and two checks for our One Great Hour of Sharing special offering on Easter Sunday!! This is in addition to envelopes that were put in the offering plates. We will have a grand total for you soon!! If you have not yet given to this PCUSA offering and would like to do so, you can still put that notation on a check and drop it in the offering.
Our Shallowford Community Garden is flourishing!! Each Sunday our "Sharing the Bounty" table will be laden with lettuce, kale, spinach, chard, and radishes for a few more weeks, and more produce will be appearing as the summer continues! Take home some fresh, organic veggies to enjoy in exchange for your donation to Crisis Control Ministries! Any produce left on the table is delivered to Clemmons Food Pantry.
Red Cross Blood Drives - Put these important dates on your calendar and "give the gift of life" at the next Lewisville Community Blood Drive. We need a volunteer to provide a cake and a volunteer to cover the hours of 9:00AM–1:30PM at the blood drive. Please contact Liz Jenkins if you can volunteer: 336-546-2663 / firstname.lastname@example.org

Community Garden News - The Sharing the Bounty table for our Community Garden overflowed with the fruits of our labors this summer! Lots of tomatoes, okra, beans, cucumbers, eggplants, peppers, and winter squash!!
Thank you for your support this year, whether you planted, tended, or "shopped" at the table. In 2018 we raised $825.00 in donations to Crisis Control and made several trips to Clemmons Food Pantry. Thank you for your generous contributions!
Watch for news in March about a date for garden clean-up and early spring crop planting! It’s going to be a great year! If you are interested in being a part of this wonderful ministry, talk to Janet Scharling or Stewart Ellis- hope you can join us in the garden!!
