Youth Fundraiser – HoneyBaked Hams

The NCOB Youth and Jr. High groups are raising money to help them serve at workcamps and other activities. Please support their efforts buy purchasing HoneyBaked Ham gift cards.  Buy one for a turkey at Thanksgiving.  Buy one for a ham at Christmas.  Need food for New Year’s Eve???  We’re thinking ham.  Or turkey.

 

You can use your HoneyBaked Gift Card to shop online, order from the HoneyBaked catalog or pick up at any HoneyBaked location nationwide. The gift cards make GREAT stocking stuffers!  And the most satisfying part? 20% of your purchase goes directly to support the fundraiser. Please feel free to share this event with friends and family.  This promotion ends December 31.

Underneath that sweet, crunchy glaze is the leanest, most flavorful, moist & tender ham you’ll find anywhere. Whether it’s our signature ham, tender turkey, delicious desserts or our tasty Heat & Serve sides, you know you’ll be serving the best.

Crop Walk to End Hunger

We will once again be partnering with Manassas Church of the Brethren in the CROP Walk. This is a great even for the entire family. We will gather at Nokesville Park on Sunday, October 13 at 2 p.m. to walk.

This is the 50th Anniversary of the Crop Hunger Walk.  In 1969, teens in Bismarck, North Dakota and York County, Pennsylvania decided it was time to do something for families who had to walk miles for food and clean water. So they walked…and, because they took that first step, hunger has forever been changed.

In celebration, we will be spending time in worship on Sunday, October 13, examining what Jesus has to say about caring for the hungry.  And then, we will give “feet” to our worship!

Invite friends and family to support your walk with their donations. You can bring checks or cash with you, or friends can donate online.

Donations to National Older Adult Conference (NOAC)

Pastor Angela will attend the Church of the Brethren NOAC, where she will take continuing education workshops and teach a “Sewing Your Own Prayer Journal” workshop. Additionally, she will participate in a 2.5 mile walk to raise money to support university education for Church of the Brethren members in Rwanda. If you would like to make a $10 pledge to support her walk, please have the money to her by Sept. 1.  Checks can be made to “Church of the Brethren” with “NOAC walk” in the memo line.

Additionally, NOAC is collecting children’s books for the Junaluska Elementary School. You are welcome to donate new (or gently used) books for children in kindergarten through 5th grade – again by Sept. 1.

Gratitude Workshop, Sat. March 30

Some Christians make a point of giving something up during Lent, but Pastor Angela suggests “giving something away” instead. Join her for a Gratitude Workshop on Saturday, March 30th at 10 am. You will be guided through a series of prompts to “give your thanks away.”

She wrote:  “As I’ve been preparing to lead this workshop, I’ve been really excited by my evolving understanding of what the word “gratitude” even means. Is it something we “owe” someone because of their generosity – or is it so much more? I hope you’ll come and explore how focusing on gratitude, even just a little bit, can change everything!”

Please bring $10 for the workshop – we will use note cards as part of the workshop, and the money will go towards Major Maintenance. Invite your friends.
