Please bring your special holiday potluck item for the gathering time or the meal, table service and cold beverage of choice.  Coffee and tea will be provided.  And for your crazy gift, it can be a “White Elephant” item or a re-gift or candy or whatever, but please don’t spend too much money, this is for fun and on the cheap!!!  And if you know you will be coming a day or so before the 6th, please give Heather a call at 264-7347 so she knows about how many people to expect.  See you on Friday, December 6th at 6pm for a fun Christmas party.

Walk and Talk

We are a group of NCUMC church family who walk at the fairgrounds on Tuesdays and Fridays. This gives us a chance to get a little exercise while, at the same time, catching up with one another. The group began walking over 10 years ago (not sure of the exact date). The number of walkers have gone up and down over the years and are now between 5 and 7. We walk for approximately 30 minutes through the beautiful fairgrounds starting at gate 1. We are always encouraging more folks to join us so, just let us know if you are interested and we will look for you before we start our walk, which is presently at 8:30 a.m.

There is much to do to accomplish our Christmas Outreach Ministry to our community.  We need you to sign up to brings gifts for children, purchase needed groceries to fill bags that each family receives,  bake cookies or make some fudge, be here to help when you can with sorting and  packing on Monday, December 23rd and  distribution on Tuesday, December 24th.   This year we have an extremely tight time schedule!  Maybe you have some good used clothing that has been outgrown, or toys that your children or grandchildren no longer use. We have these items ready for people to choose what they can use.  Do stop and check out all the information and schedules posted near the nursery and help where you can.
