Pine Grove Happenings 6/20/2022

Sunday, June 12th Joys (got left off last week):
Ron Dry – Stanly County had 2 winners in Fast Pitch Softball yesterday.
West Stanly, won the 2A Division at Chapel Hill and South Stanly won the 1A Division at Greensboro! Stanly County was represented well!
Roddy Tomberlin – We celebrated Clara’s 6th Birthday on Friday and she will have another one on Saturday!

Sunday, June 19th Joys:
Happy Father’s Day!
Robin Hinson – I had breakfast on the patio this morning and it was 56 degrees! It was great!
Kathy Odell – We have a joy – Today we have 2 of our grandkids that usually are in Florida, then my oldest granddaughter is here too, and that’s really special!
We spent a week in Florida with Special Olympics which we had a wonderful time!
Nancy A. Burleson – My grandson graduated this week in Durham!
Dale Burleson – You know it’s Father’s Day and of course my Dad ain’t here and that’s a very bad thing, but I’m okay with that cause he had a best friend.  He didn’t have to love me cause he loved my Daddy – Keith Burleson, you are the Man!  Keith spent time with me when I was a kid, he didn’t have to cause he was my Dad’s friend, but he loved me first and that makes it awful easy to love somebody back!  Thank you!
Robin Hinson – When I came here in the1980’s, a long time ago; a lifetime ago, I didn’t know many of you, but there were a lot of men in this church, most of them are gone. I was thinking about it this morning and you could always count on Marvin Parker, you could count on Kenneth, you could count on Don, you could count on Max, you could count on Cecil, you could count on Gene Almond and Bernie, Larry,  you could count on Glen Dale, (I may have missed some) but anyway we have a wonderful legacy here from these men and that is something to be joyful about and maybe a little sad.

We still need more volunteers!

  • Volunteers need to go through Safe Sanctuary Training to work with the children. 
  • We need 4 men to help with skits (15 minutes on one night each).
  • We also need leaders to help move the children through the Jerusalem Marketplace.
  • We are in need of some props like Gazebo tents, baskets and pottery like what you might have seen in those days (We will return it to you after VBS If you want us to).

Please HELP if you can!
Fellowship Hall will be open for you to drop off your items on Wednesday, June 22nd from 6 to 8 pm.  Or contact Makayla, Ally or Trevor.
