Christian Mission Donations:
In addition to our ongoing food drive for Mooresville Christian Mission, please consider donating school supplies and kid-friendly snacks for children in need in our community, especially as virtual school is getting ready to begin soon. Children will still need basic supplies such as spiral notebooks, pens and pencils, scissors, crayons, markers, 3 ring binders, dry erase markers and dry erase boards, glue, colored pencils, etc. In addition, school-age children also need kid-friendly snacks such as individual fruit cups, peanut butter, crackers, gummy snacks, individual cereal, pretzels, and juice boxes. Please leave donations in the boxes in the drive-through. Thank you for your generosity toward the children in our community during these difficult and challenging days.

Children's Messages: There will be a Children's Message posted on the church website (mooresvillefpc.org) at the end of each week. Click on Ministries tab, then Children tab.
Apart from the prayer and support of the Elders and Deacons, we have a wonderful group of people who have been responding to the needs of our congregation as they come in. Food has been delivered to homes and the Christian Mission, errands have been run, masks have been made, and many have felt loved and supported. If you have a pressing need caused by the stay at home order, please feel free to reach out to Jason and we will do our best to come beside you and help. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission partners at the Christian Mission are in desperate need of Pantry volunteers in the afternoons. If you are comfortable, serving in this way, you can sign up using this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c45a8ac22a75-pantry
Father & Son Kayak Trip:
Saturday, August 29, 2020. Fathers and sons are invited to join a group from the church for a day trip on the New River. We will meet at 6:45 a.m. at the church for donuts and devotion, and then head to Wahoo's Adventure where we will kayak down the river. We will eat a packed lunch on the river, and grab dinner on the way home. Cost is $35 per kayak. To register please go to the ministries page of the website or click here.
Back to School:
School begins for most of our students and teachers this coming week. Congratulations on entering a new grade, and on the new opportunities awaiting you this school year. We want students and teachers to know that we are praying for them, and that we pray for God's blessings on them as them embark on an entirely different way of learning and teaching. "Back to School goodie bags" have been prepared for all of our students - please pick one up in the drive-through area today. God bless you in the 2020-2021 school year.
We are initiating a program where people in the congregation will be paired with a child in our congregation to specifically pray for that child and their family. On our current church roll, these are the ages of our children:
- Elementary (grades K-6) - 35 children
- Middle School (grades 7-8) - 19 children
- High School (grades 9-12) - 41 children
Please contact Ellen Auten (email@example.com) to sign up to pray for a child or children in our church family. What a great opportunity to show love and concern for these young people! Please let Ellen know if you would like a specific age child. In addition, we will also be praying specifically for teachers in our church family; please let Ellen Auten know if you would like to pray specifically for a teacher in our congregation.
n in our community during these difficult and challenging days.
These are trying times for us all, and continued financial support of the present and future operation of our church is very important.
If you are in a position to continue your giving to the church, there are several ways to do it. You can take it to the church (M - F, 10am - 2 pm), mail it, or use the new giving portal on the church website: https://mooresvillefpc.org/give
The website gives you two options: bank account or charge card. If you use your charge card, approximately 2% will be added automatically to your giving amount to cover the transaction fee. The church then gets the full amount of your planned donation. Note: Even though the website will ask for your name and email, only the email comes through to Marian in the transaction. Please add your name in the 'note' section. She needs this in order to give you proper credit.
Thank you for your continued faithfulness.
