New and gently used school clothes and supplies needed

images

Do you remember planning for your first day of school each year– what to wear, what supplies to bring?  Some of the excitement was seeing your friends again; some was having new school clothes, shoes, or notebooks and pencils.

For the past few years one of our adult Sunday School classes collected gently used and new clothes and supplies for the Golden Triangle kids.  It was a special treat to see kids who were so excited to get clothes and supplies that were new to them. This year, we don’t have a SS Class who can take charge, so we are planning to simplify the process.

If you have gently used school clothes, shoes, or supplies to donate, please bring them to the Community Center on Sunday mornings. We plan to give everything that is collected to the Golden Triangle UMW Circle who, in turn, will redistribute them to children based on need.  We will continue collecting items through mid-August.

If you have questions, please contact Gayle Morin 615-414-4427.

Edgehill/Belmont UMW event

On Thursday, August 7, at 6:00 p.m., Belmont UMW members are invited to join Edgehill UMW members in their study of the Roma of Europe at Edgehill UMC. The program will be led by our own Mary-Helen Marigza, and refreshments will be served.

On that evening, you will have a chance to learn more about the history of the Roma (sometimes known as gypsies), as well as their plight during current times. You will look at ways they are treated in contemporary European culture, their lifestyle, and their spirituality.  You will be informed of ways the church and other organizations are working alongside the Roma.  Come ready to be informed and enlightened.
