NEW BEGINNINGS THRIFT SHOP
Over the past few years, The New Beginnings Thrift Store has not only been successful in selling clothing and items, more importantly, it has helped people. It has provided items to people in need, not just by selling them items at extremely reasonable prices, but by giving items to those in need for FREE! Carol Roberts has met people in desperate need at the thrift store outside of regular hours to offer assistance . When we have an excess of items or things which have set on our shelves for long periods of time, Carol has donated them to other non-profit organizations, to make room for new items which are donated to us all the time. And the money raised through sales has been carefully used to help local people with emergency and medical related needs, to help support school programs (i.e. Bobcat Boutique), to provide Christmas gifts for children who otherwise would have no gifts under their trees, and to helpour neighbors throughout the nation survive and rebuild after national disasters.
Please take note, that the work at the Thrift Store is currently an undertaking of Carol Roberts (manager), Evelyn Baker, and Billie Jo Northrop from our congregation, as well as, community volunteers not affiliated with our congregation. Carol NEEDS more people from the congregation to keep this mission thriving. Please consider volunteering!
And also consider joining the Missions Committee to help decide on how these missions funds can best be utilized to help our local community, the B-G School district, and our national brothers/sisters.

USHERS AND GREETERS
Thank you to all members who continue to serve in these capacities. It is your service that makes our church a welcoming community that operates smoothly during each service!
Please remember that if you are scheduled to serve as an Usher/Greeter, liturgist, or communion server on your scheduled date, reach out to another member of the congregation to switch dates or secure a replacement.
The Spiritual Nurture Committee has decided to continue with 2 people per Sunday, who will greet as they hand out the bulletins and perform the other usher duties (light candles, place a glass of water on pulpit for the pastor, count attendance, and collect the offering). If you are currently not an usher/greeter but feel called to be part of this ministry, please contact Carolyn Williams at email@example.com or by phone at 967-8600.
