Update: Men of the Church

Candlemakers (under the leadership of I.B. Southerland) produced and sold a (recent) record number of candles. The net proceeds are being donated to the following local charities:

  • SECU Family House
  • Sunnyside Ministry
  • Shepard’s Center
  • Second Harvest Food Bank
  • Laurel Ridge
  • Wachovia Garden
  • Crossnore School
  • H.O.P.E.

You can help make candles to sell this year! We have had a great turnout at our candle-making sessions. They take place in the candle making room on the 1st Thursday of the month from 8am-1pm.

There are several jobs to choose from: Candle Stringing, Candle Finishing, and making boxes.

It is a nice time for fellowship with fellow men of the church. You are invited to come for the whole time of just a few hours if that is what you have to spare.
