There will be a World Day of Prayer at Scartho Methodist Church on Friday 6th March, at 7pm. This is a Day of Prayer which encircles the globe, starting as the sun rises in Samoa and ending 36 hours later back in the Pacific as the sun sets over American Samoa.  We will be joining with people in over 120 countries and islands around the world. This year the service has been prepared for us by the women of Zimbabwe who call us to 'Rise!  Take your mat and walk' All are Welcome.  Refreshments will be served after the service.

MEMBERSHIP SESSIONS

 

Are you considering becoming a Member of the Methodist Church at Scartho?  Would you like to know more about what it means?  If the answer is 'yes' to either of these questions you are invited to come along to a series of sessions for those who would like to explore

the subject further. They will be held on Thursdays 12th, 19th and 26th March and the 2nd April, at 7.30pm.  You will be very welcome.

If you want to know more in the meantime, please contact

Rev Susan Chambers or any member of the Leadership Team.

 

'TALK TOGETHER'

 

The next meeting for the 'Talk Together' project will be at Scartho Methodist Church on Friday 13th March, at 7pm. Please come and share any thoughts you may have about what we can do next.   See you there!

 

PREPARATION FOR OUR AGM

 

Our AGM (3rd May at 12.15pm, followed by a Faith Meal), will soon be upon us.  At this meeting we will appoint members of our Leadership Team and Representatives from the Church Membership to the Church Council.  Please prayerfully consider if you should apply for either of these roles.  Application forms will be out soon (from Heather) and will need to be in by the end of March.  Thank you.

 

CARE – ANNUAL DONATION OF FOOD IN MARCH

 

As you may be aware CARE have stopped their own Food Bank, but they are still collecting food and passing it on to another Food Bank.  Therefore, we will still have our annual collection and the table will be out from March.  I have spoken to the Food Bank who provide food for between 400 and 600 adults and children each week including many who have no fixed abode. They are desperately short of tinned food namely Baked Beans, Spaghetti and Soup.  Please therefore concentrate your donations on these three items.  Giving just one of each of those tins to every person that means they need at least 1200 tins per week.

Please note that the object of the Food Bank is to supplement what food is already available to individuals, or to be a stop gap facility when social payments are delayed, or they are on temporary stop.  Thank you, Derek.
