Go & Do: Outreach & Mission Opportunities

Opportunities abound to help within our community and in others this fall. It’s as easy a picking up a package of diapers at the store, or as involved as providing hurricane relief support to those in the Lumberton area. Take a look!

• Yam Jam: Saturday, Oct. 5
Join a St. Michael’s team to glean sweet potatoes at First Fruits Farm in Franklin County. Volunteers of all ages, including families, are welcome.

We will meet for breakfast somewhere near the church, time and place TBD. Please contact Anna McLamb to sign up.

• Hurricane Relief Day of Service: Saturday, Oct. 5
Volunteers are needed to provide labor to families still suffering from housing needs in the wakeof Hurricane Florence.

Small Groups Return this Fall

Our programs are designed to introduce Contemplative Prayer and the practice of Christian Spirituality. In a small group setting, we will explore what helps us respond to God in ordinary life. We will build friendships, practice attentive listening, and respond to scripture. This time will allow us to experience silence as a uniquely powerful way of being open to God.

“A Woman’s Heart - God’s Dwelling Place”

This in-depth biblical study by Beth Moore explores the fascinating account of the building of the tabernacle, the significance of its intricate design, its pivotal role in God’s eternal plan and the grand fulfillment of its purpose by Jesus Christ, the true Tabernacle. As we journey through this Old Testament account, we are encouraged to prepare our hearts, like the Holy of Holies, to become a home for God’s love and glory- a dwelling place for the Most High God.
