Immediate Need at Genesis Ministries

I have long been impressed with a ministry called Genesis whose stated purpose is, “We exist to provide a new beginning for women who are bound by addictions.”  Recently, I had conversations with Christy Starnes, the Executive Director.  When I asked what was the greatest need they had during this crisis time she responded,

“Hey Pastor Thane. The largest help, besides monetary donations, would be food.  Can goods and Walmart gift cards for the purchase of meat and fruit.”

Canned goods included green beans, asparagus, peas, fruit, beans and soups.

I told her I would get the word out asap. I am asking the good people, churches and individuals to help meet this immediate need.

Our drop off site at Woodbine in the courtyard near the main entrance located in the back of the church.  There is a black bin with the words, Genesis Food Donations on it.  If you want to make another type of gift, please call the church office.

Drop off sites are…

We will be collecting donations through May 22, 2020.  The items will be picked up and delivered to Genesis.

Thanks for your help in advance,

Thane Barnes, Pastor

When are We Going to Have Church Again?

Simply put, we don’t know! The government seems to sloooooowly be phasing in a return to life as we knew it. I would hope we may be able to start back later in May.  We will keep you informed. The phased approach leaves a lot up in the air.  When we are able to meet publicly again, we may have multiple services of 50 or so. We will probably begin with Sunday mornings. The last church I pastored had three morning services so I know it can be done.  We are also considering options for small group ministry gatherings going forward.  Sunday School will be one of the options.  There may be small group electives to choose from.  JUST THOUGHTS!  IT’S ALL UP IN THE AIR!  WE REALLY DON’T KNOW, BUT WE HAVE TO PLAN AHEAD.

Thanks for your support and listening to our Facebook messages which can also be found on our website at Woodbinebc.org. Share them with others.  There’s other information and updates on the website.
