Our first Bible study will be divided into three 8-week sessions. It is an in-depth (24 week) study especially useful for the leaders in our church. It focuses on the relationship between God‚Äôs Word and everyday life. Its goal is to build stronger, more trusting relationships and confidence in the scriptures. Covenant also offers an opportunity to better understand God‚Äôs call, His love, and His unexpected favor.¬†Please consider joining us for at least 8-weeks beginning on January 4 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. The first 8-weeks focuses on CREATING THE COVENANT: How the Covenant community is created and established.

Michael Hawn of¬†Crossroads UMC¬†is asking for our help in making cookies for the KAIROS Prison Ministry again this year.
For those of you who have never made cookies, I will give just a little background.¬† Each person on the team is asked to bring at least 100 dozen cookies.¬† There are 42 inmates on the walk, plus the inmates helping with setup, clean up, serving, sound, and video.¬† The inmates eat as many cookies as they can during the actual walk.¬† Each participant/inmate also gets a dozen cookies each evening with the exception of¬†Saturday.¬†¬†On Saturday, each participant gets two dozen cookies.¬† One for them and one for a person whom they have had a disagreement.¬† Also¬†on Saturday, every inmate, no matter what part of the prison they are in gets a dozen cookies.¬† If each of you would make five dozen cookies per the instructions attached to this email, I would greatly appreciate it and so would the inmates and security personnel.¬† I would also ask that you start praying now.¬† You would be surprised at the gratitude these men show when they learn that so many people are baking cookies and are praying for them.¬†¬†The cookies and your prayers do make a difference!¬†
The date of the walk is¬†October 8, and it goes through¬†October 11, so I would need the cookies by¬†October 6.¬†¬† Again, for those who have never made cookies, the instructions on cookies and how to package them were given to us by the state of Tennessee department of Corrections and have to be followed explicitly.¬†¬† If the cookies are crumbled, have ingredients besides what are in the instructions, or have sugar on top, the cookies will be rejected by the prison.¬† The prison does this for security reasons and so the inmates will not take the contraband ingredients and make alcoholic beverages out of it.¬† Contraband ingredients would include candy, nuts, sugar or frosting on the top, or fruit like raisins.¬† Brownies are forbidden also as well as store bought cookies.¬† Thanks again.¬† I really appreciate it.¬†

Members of our Cub Club began a special opportunity through the Willard and Edythe Scott Learning Landscapes Raised Garden Project: Along with our partners, the Kingsport Lions Club (who sponsors our Cub Club members) Appalachian Sustainable Development, and one of the most important partners to get the project off of the ground , the youth mission group from Cassidy United Methodist Church. Young people from Cassidy United Methodist Church spent most of July 28th building six raised beds for members so they could learn how to plant gardens and what it means to provide healthier options for their fami¬≠lies.¬† This joint project is one that will last a lifetime because of caring members such as you who understand that we must continue building our member‚Äôs futures…mind, body and soul.
