Pine Grove Happenings 10/25/2021

Sunday, October 24th Joys:
Pastor Ron – We have two new members who joined Pine Grove UMC today, Mr. Art Whittaker and Mr. John Bates.
Makayla Hinson – Last Sunday we took five children to Sunny Oaks Farm and all had a great time!
Pastor Ron – The Trustees fixed the light on our sign and now it is visible at night again.
Keith Burleson – Mr. Art and I are really good friends and eat together sometimes, but if you want to go out for a good meal, have one with Mr. Art ( he usually picks up the tab!).
Pastor Ron -Jonathan had an appointment and he is doing really well.  He goes back to work on November 1.  He still feels like he is weaker than he should be so please continue to pray for him.
Anita Walker – I had a visit from my Sister and Mom and they spent the night.  Also I helped the group prepare and feed the football team and that was great!
Angela Burleson – Ron Huneycutt got to come home and he even got to escort his Daughter at Homecoming.
Also, thank you for prayers for my Mom, she came home on Wednesday, but is still struggling. Please keep praying for her.

**Youth & Family Event – Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat
 We will be holding a Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 30 from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.
We Need Volunteers! We need more car Trunks! We need folks to pass out candy as the cars with children pass through!
We will also give out hotdogs as the cars leave so we need folks to help with this too.
Please reach out to Pastor Ron or Robin Hinson if you plan to decorate your car trunk, bring decorations, pass out candy, or help with hotdogs. We need many helpers to make this a success!
We will also accept donations for candy, prizes, and hotdogs.
Please pray as to how God would have you participate in this outreach.
Invite your friends and families!
