**Sweet Heart Dance on Saturday, February 4th!
Pine Grove is having their Annual Sweet Heart Dance on Saturday, February 4th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for all the local residents with developmental disabilities.  We are expecting as many as 200 folks to attend!  We need lots of help with this wonderful mission.

Stanly Community College will be doing their hair and make-up for some of them for free!

We will meet at the Fellowship Hall to decorate, move tables, and get other things ready at 4:00 pm and The Dance will start at 6:00 pm and run to 8:00 pm.  (The guests are known to arrive a little early.)

If you are able to help in any way, set up, serve, clean up, or just be there for support, please come!  I know if you come you will receive a blessing just being there!
