COATS FOR CHILDREN--A LENTEN MISSION FOCUS

This year, our mission focus for the season of Lent is something different, but very much needed in our community.  This past Christmas, Tryon UMC donated new coats to Outreach, who distributed those to children during their Holiday Gift Program.  Along with gift cards, toys, and other items, we contributed more than 20 new coats for children.  Parents and caregivers were delighted to have the chance to choose a new coat for their child as part of their Christmas present.

This year, we would like to contribute at least 40 coats to the holiday gift program. (More would be great!) This is perfect time of year to purchase them because they will be on sale.  Here’s how you can participate:

 

·      Check your favorite store or on-line shopping site NOW for deals on coats. 

·      Make a designated monetary donation now. (Pastor Lynnette will shop for you if you if you would like). 

·      Invite a friend, neighbor or relative to participate in this effort. 

·      Drop off your coats outside the office.  A coat rack will be there and you can hang your coat there. 

Donations will be kept here until November when we will send them over to Outreach for distribution.

Page Turners Book Discussion      

July 15, 2024    1:00 p.m.    Library

A river called Long Man has coursed through East Tennessee from time immemorial, bringing sustenance to the people who farm along its banks and who trade among its small towns. But as Long Man opens, the Tennessee Valley Authority’s plans to dam the river and flood the town of Yuneetah for the sake of progress—to bring electricity and jobs to the region—are about to take effect. Just a few days remain before the river will rise, and most of the town has been evacuated. Among the holdouts is a young, headstrong mother, Annie Clyde Dodson, whose ancestors have lived for generations on her mountaintop farm; she’ll do anything to ensure that her three-year-old daughter, Gracie, will inherit the family’s land. But her husband wants to make a fresh start in Michigan, where he’s found work that will bring the family a more secure future. As the deadline looms, a storm as powerful as the emotions between them rages outside their door. Suddenly they realize that Gracie is nowhere to be found. Has the little girl simply wandered off into the rain? Or has she been taken by Amos, the mysterious drifter who has come back to Yuneetah, perhaps to save his hometown in a last, desperate act of violence?

Suspenseful, visceral, gorgeously told, Long Man is a searing portrait of a tight-knit community brought together by change and crisis, and of one family facing a terrifying ticking clock. A novel set in history that resonates with our own times, it is a dazzling and unforgettable tour de force.
