SOLE HOPE - SHOE CUTTING PARTY
Posted March 26, 2015, 12:18 pm

WEDNESDAY, MAY 20
6 PM
CHRISTIAN ENRICHMENT CENTER

SOLE HOPE is and organization tat strives to effectively put in place preventative methods to combat diseases that enter through the feet, to create a positive physical and spiritual difference in the lives of individuals in impoverished communities.

Sole Hope works in Uganda with medical clinics to remove jiggers, which are sand fleas that burrow in the feet. Shoes are then provided to children who previously had bare, exposed feet.

Memorial UMC will host a "Shoe-cutting Party" on Wednesday, May 20.

In order to make this happen, we will need to begin collecting materials NOW. We need denim and plastic milk jugs. The shoe pieces that we will help to cut to send to Uganda will allow local shoe makers who are paid a fair wage, to use those materials in the construction of shoes.

So start saving those old jeans NOW!!!

THOMASVILLE COMMUNITY CONCERT SERIES
Posted March 26, 2015, 11:59 am
(A collaboration of the North Carolina School of the Arts and Thomasville Area Schools)

SUNDAYS, APRIL 12, 19, 26 & MAY 3
4:00 PM
MEMORIAL UMC SANCTUARY

OUR MISSION is to bring outstanding classical music to the Thomasville community and to provide inspiration, support and collaboration for young classical artists in the local area.

Each of the four concerts will include a variety of old and modern classical chamber music performed by local musicians. In addition to enhancing arts in Thomasville, we strive to educate audiences by showcasing music written by new or obscure composers. Music of all kinds will be performed, from classical and romantic styles to 20th-century compositions. Each concert will involve five to seven musicians providing a variety of instruments and genres.

Each program will also showcase a young musician who has shown promising progress towards a music career, primarily from the Thomasville City Schools. This opportunity allows the student to have a paid performance as a potential professional. The student will also be able to network and collaborate with musicians that have already launched their careers.

Are you interested in lending volunteer support? Contact Tom Holladay or Cherie Johnson. Call the church office for contact information: 336-472-7718.
