  • hOMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS? (hABITAT FOR humanity)

    Urgent: A Home for the Holidays:  Local families need your help! We are currently building two homes in Lincolnton and a home in Denver. The homes in Lincolnton were started last May during National Women Build Week. These homes are being built for three single mothers in Lincoln County. One of these future homeowners has three children and recently moved to night shift so that she could work on building her home during the day. Do you know where your family will be spending the holidays? Where these families spend the holidays will greatly depend on how many volunteers we have serving with us this month and next. Our mission is impossible without volunteers. On our last Saturday build day Dave, Martin, and I were on the construction site with two Homeowners in Progress - and no volunteers showed up. Who is willing to lend a hand on the build site so that these families can be in their homes by the holidays? We host build days Tuesdays - Saturdays from 8am - 1pm. If your team, church group, or friends & family are able to lend a hand, I will feed you a good lunch and make sure that you have a fun time on the job site - learning something new and helping to build strength and stability in the lives of neighbors. 
    Kelly McLain, AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator, Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County Cell: 828-406-4045 Will YOU help us Build Them?

  • ATTENTION...ANYONE SEEKING TO BE A BLESSING....AND BE THE HANDS AND FEET OF CHRIST....

    **Calvary Hispanic needs your help...From now until they are able to get into their new church building—they will be hard at work every Saturday on the needed renovations.  For the next two Saturdays (July 29th and August 5th beginning at 8 AM) (they especially need as much help as they can get.  They will be busting up the roof over the Sunday School Room section (It is similar to asphalt) and putting it in a dumpster to prepare the way for the new roof.  If they get enough help this Saturday they could possibly get all the old roof material removed and hopefully be ready to begin the new roof by next Saturday (weather permitting).   We only have a few tools on the Disaster Trailer, so if you can come help and you have any—please bring picks, mattocks or axes to bust up the asphalt.  Also, it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could come and make sandwiches, etc. for the workers for lunch each Saturday.  The Hispanic congregation has been working their hearts out each Saturday—it would be a great blessing if we could come alongside them and help!  If anyone could bring an ice chest full of ice to keep the bottled water (that was donated) cool—that would be great!    Also, if you care for something besides water such as Gatorade, you could bring that along as well.  After this roof work is done, there will be a need for help in cleaning up inside.  Men, Women, Youth, ---ALL HELP IS GREATLY APPREICATED!  Please contact Lamar Lewis (704)472-0727 for more info.  

  • South Mountain Baptist Camp needs church van!

    Friends of SMBC. We have a need that someone can help us with. We need a cargo van or passenger van or minivan with removable seats and I believe there is someone reading this that has one at their home or church right now that sits unused most of the time. Each week during the summer we have to make multiple runs to town to pick up the the next week's supplies(bread, produce, store, etc.). And at this time we don't have a reliable vehicle to perform these tasks. This vehicle doesn't have to look good. We're just looking for something that is safe and in good mechanical condition that can travel back and forth to Morganton and Hickory. And here's the kicker...we're asking you to donate it to the camp! Doing so won't put any dollars in your pocket but it will help you to lay up treasure in heaven as you invest in the salvation of souls through this ministry. And since we are a 501c3 non-profit, you can get a tax deduction for the value of your vehicle at the end of the year. If you have the camp's van, you can contact the director through Facebook messenger or through the main camp phone 828-437-8788. If we don't receive a donated van, I wonder if there is someone that would either loan us a vehicle for the purposes I described for June - August or perhaps could give us a great price on a vehicle that would meet our needs. Thanks for taking the time to read this and passing the word to friends and relatives that might could help as well. Albert Tinnin altinnin@bellsouth.net

  • volunteer opportunity - True north pregnancy center

    Dear Churches and Team Leaders,        You may be familiar with the CareNet Pregnancy Center that has served in the Bennington, VT area for many years.  They have recently reorganized under the name True North Pregnancy Center directed by Heidi VanVoorhis, and each staff member will receive certified training before their opening date in late summer.  The new location in downtown Bennington is more visible and is, we believe, providentially located one block from Planned Parenthood.  The building has received some volunteer renovation, and additional improvements are needed.    


      Below is a list of items (some needed; some wished for) that this facility would like to have that will enhance their efforts to save the unborn from abortion.  If you are willing and able to supply any of these items, please  contact Nellene at this e-mail address (ncarter23@att.net) or her cell phone, 704-530-7438.     


    Please make your involvement a matter of prayer.  Vermont is still one of the least Christian states in America.  With sincere thanks, Steve and Nellene Carter/NC/VT
