We have two September trips planned:
We will carpool to High Point, spending a bit of time at the High Point Museum (highpointmuseum.org) with lunch at Emerywood Fine Foods (emerywood.com). Our special guest for lunch will be Courtney Winfrey, who is a student at High Point University. After lunch, Courtney will provide a brief tour of the campus as we learn what’s behind the outstanding growth in this school’s national ranking in recent years. THE DATE FOR THIS TRIP WILL BE FINALIZED AND COMMUNICATED ONCE COURTNEY CAN CONFIRM HER SCHEDULE. Stay tuned!
* On Wednesday, September 23, we will meet at the church to carpool to dinner and then attend a concert by Ukrainian musicians at Centenary UMC. Below is information provided by the District Office:
Many Americans trace their ancestry in some way to Ukraine. Recent instability, invasion, war and suffering in Ukraine leave Americans wondering; “What’s really happening in Ukraine,” “How can we help? How can we pray?” Music Mission Kiev (MMK) has been on the front line of ministry in Ukraine for over 24 years, including these recent months of trauma and foreign invasion. MMK has seen, touched, smelled and experienced the recent horrors, wounds and tears. Wes and Kim Janzen will bring 42 fabulous Ukrainian musicians from the Kyiv Symphony Orchestra and Chorus (KSOC) here to Centenary’s sanctuary at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, September 23rd to share a sacred concert and stories of God’s grace. You won’t want to miss it. Franz Mohr (Steinway) said of a recent KSOC concert; “That’s the best sacred concert I’ve heard, anywhere.” See and hear what God is doing in the lives of other believers around the world.

* The SKY group will also help provide food for the Building Team to take with them when they head to Edenton the week of September 20 to help repair a home damaged by a tornado last year. (Note: There are still openings on the team; if you would like to help, contact Billy Walker.)
What’s ahead for October? Watch for details on our trip to Boone/Blowing Rock to enjoy the fall leaves plus opportunities to help with the annual Kingswood Fall Festival. So many choices for this great group!
