After a wonderful year, the King’s Kids program had it’s last meeting on Wednesday, May 15.
The children enjoyed ice cream sundaes, practicing a hymn they will sing at this Sunday’s 11am service,
and taking aim at a big piñata full of goodies.
Once again, the success of this outstanding ministry is a direct result of the faithfulness of the adult volunteers.
Thank you for all your hard work and love of the children. Seeds of faith have been planted because of your efforts.
The adult/youth workers are:
Susan Amato, Jennifer Hewett, Verlie Jernigan, Jennifer Johnson, Shane Knight, Sue Knight, Sherri Pittman, Darlene Teeple and Larri Whitehead.

HELP WANTED SHARON UMC CHICKEN LUNCH/DINNER
Our CHICKEN lunch/dinner is scheduled for May 17, 2013 and many people are needed to make this event a success.

BAZAAR EVENT SCHEDULE FOR 2013
On the evening of 2/21/13 the Bazaar Oversight Committee met to develop the Bazaar Events schedule for 2013. As the schedule for Sharon, a very active church, was being developed it was apparent that it was going to be difficult to schedule activities related to the annual bazaar. This schedule is being provided so you can place these dates on your calendar and you can start telling your friends the plan for 2013. These events are great opportunities for you to work with and get to know the members of Sharon. We hope you find a place you feel comfortable working for this year’s Bazaar.
The event schedule currently planned is as follows:
Spring Yard Sale — March 22/23 Completed – A big success!
Chicken Dinner — March 22 Completed – Another success!
Chicken Dinner – May 17
Live Auction & BBQ Dinner — October 19
Bazaar — October 25/26 – Yard Sale, Crafts, Silent Auction, Bake Sale, Breakfast, Soup, Hot Dog/BBQ Sandwiches
The Bazaar Oversight Committee continues to meet periodically to discuss this major fundraising function at Sharon; these various events have been very successful for many years. We need to work hard to continue the success of all these events. The committee is starting to recruit individuals to lead these various areas. Open your heart to accept the various positions needed to make these major events a success. Thank you!
Vicki Altoonian, Waydell Bowen, Debby Kirby, Allison Stone, Ron Wilson and Rev Eddie Hill

The Missions and Outreach crew had the most blessed week in February feeding and housing the less fortunate of out area. Many people were fed, given coats, blankets, food and toiletries. The Fellowship Hall was filled with great fellowship and God’s love nightly. We would like to thank New Life Christian Fellowship, Holden Beach Chapel, Peace Memorial Baptist and Building Hope Ministries for the food and support A great big thank you to all the wonderful volunteers that helped out through out the week. Two of our guests rededicated their lives to the Lord on Wednesday night. Praise Him!! We were able to make a real difference in the lives of a few people, even for just a week. To God be the glory. The Missions Crew has signed up to host 2 weeks next season, with one week in November and another in February.
Our future plans are to host an informational luncheon for other area churches to increase awareness of the homeless problem in Brunswick County as well as give information on the church host sight program through Streetreach.
