We will have a farewell potluck dinner for Pastor Jodie and family on Sunday, June 2nd at 5:00 in the Fellowship Hall. Please bring a delicious dish or two and help us celebrate the Ihfe family’s time at New Salem UMC. If you have questions, please contact Seth Anderson at 423-394-3695 or sanderton@unim.com.

We are excited to offer our first Community Cares classes. Join Connie Ward on May 28 (6:30 to 7:30 pm) for “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words”. This workshop, which will demonstrate ways to turn family photos into games, puzzles, and activities, is for parents/grandparents of K-3 elementary age children. On June 25, (6:30 to 8:30 pm), Beth Bradford will present “Red, White, and Blue and Paint Too” patriotic crafts. Supplies will be provided. Sign up in the church Narthex.

This is the 18th year that college students from New Salem UMC may apply for the Dessie Massey Memorial Scholarships. The applications are in the Narthex. Please complete the application and return it to the Narthex or the Church Office with the additional required documents (see application for clarification) no later than June 2, 2019. Last year recipients received $500 annually.

If you have been thinking about cleaning out your clothes closet, now is the time. The Clothing Bank will willingly receive your spring/summer good clean clothes. No winter things please. The Clothing Bank is open downstairs on Thursdays from 10:00 to 1:00. You can leave donations in the hallway at any time. Many thanks!

Continue to put aside your “trash to treasure” items for the annual UMW Indoor Yard Sale on August 1-3. This is a major fundraiser for missions and other projects. Please tell your friends about it. With questions call Betsy (706) 398-3270 or email BtsyMc@bellsouth.net.
