#Chalktalk

I don’t really consider myself a creative person. I have always loved photography and that is about as artsy as I get. I envy those that can draw and paint. I was not blessed with those skills at all. Charles had at some point started writing a question that related

New look!

I went up to COSTCO on my day off on Monday.  I didn’t need a case of toilet paper or a new flat screen TV (although there were some really nice ones, someone tell Amy that would be a nice birthday present prior to the NCAA tournament), I wasn’t even

Missions

If you have come in the back door of the church the last couple weeks you may have noticed we have been doing some work in the hallway. Ron Tillapaugh painted the walls, Krista Kmety and Stephanie Beamer put up a world map, and Susan and Tom Driggers put up

Surviving!

Well, folks, I have survived my first few weeks…just in case you wanted to ask. And I have been asked, which is good, because that means people care about me and/or the church. I am a few weeks into my new position at Wright’s Chapel and it has been bumpy,

Motel Ministry

A couple of weeks ago around 20 youth and adults from the church traveled to Winchester, VA to volunteer with Teens Opposing Poverty. We stayed the night at First UMC and that Saturday morning we put together treat bags and signed Christmas Cards. After breakfast we headed out to a

I love the parade!

I need some hand lotion.  My daughter has used up the bottle I keep in my desk.  I’ve been making a giant paper mache candle for the Wright’s Chapel float for the Bowling Green Christmas Parade next week.  I haven’t decided if I want to tell you to look for
