Cheatham Memorial United Methodist Church will hold its second Autumn Celebration with a fish fry and silent auction on Saturday, October 15, 2016 beginning at 5:00 PM. We are looking forward to your joining us for an evening of good food and fellowship as we raise funds through a united effort for the mission programs of our Church.
Fish fry and side dishes including cornbread salad and gumbo, drinks, and deserts.
A wide variety of items such as home decor, arts and crafts, services, sport items and tickets, dining certificates, entertainment certificates, food baskets, bake goods, and many more.
Special live auction will also be conducted. We are currently accepting auction item donations. Donations received by October 8th, 2016 will be listed in our program booklet.
THE BIG GREEN EGG RAFFLE
Another fun way to contribute to the cause! With donation as little as $2, one could help
the community and have a chance to win the large Big Green Egg, a high quality ceramic grill, great for outdoor cooking, an activity people love to do here in East Texas. The drawing will be done during the celebration. Presence is not required to win.
WHERE THE FUNDS GO
The Outreach and Evangelism ministry, who runs the mission programs of the church has reached out and embraced young and old to share the heart of God. Last year we raised about $10,000. Up to now, about 70% of the funds have helped:
- Feed needy families and seniors
- Provide school supplies and shoes for local children
- Contribute to medication and funeral costs
- Supply food and personal care items for homeless children at school
- Reach out to the youth in the community with Youth Rally and activities throughout summer
- Reach out to seniors with Elm Circle ministry
- Bring a comfort of prayer to the ill, the grieving, new babies, or simply someone who needs it through Prayer Shawl ministry.
The list goes on and the work continues.
