Faith, Hope, Love in Action

 Dear CTC UMW,
I greet you on this Good Friday with a request for prayer and action. I have been in communication with Glenda Busch, president of the St. Barnabas United Methodist Women in Arlington, to let her know we were praying for them and to ask what we could do to help.  Along with Rev. Dawne Phillips at the Conference Mission Center, we have been working on a plan on action.  There is a need for 2 things- bottled water for the volunteers who will be working on the site and stuffed Easter eggs for the egg hunt on Sunday.  Here is Glenda's latest communication:
 
Our associate, Rev. Mike Rodden, is coordinating the volunteers on Saturday.  They have cleaned up the parking lot and he said that Michell Freeman and the youth will be at the church all day today (Friday) in the parking lot delivering bedding plants they sold as a fund raiser.  He said that all the water can be delivered directly to Barnabas Hall (a smaller building at the back of the east parking lot).  We have another need.  When the tornado hit, volunteers were stuffing eggs for our Easter egg hunt.  We are having services on Sunday Morning Sonrise on the church lawn and later at Martin High School and will have the egg hunt on the football field.  Anyone wishing to stuff and donate plastic eggs can bring them to Barnabas Hall on Friday or Saturday.  Many of our children had a very traumatic experience on Tuesday and restoring a sense of normalcy and of overcoming this in our Christ centered community is very important for them.

We are very grateful for all the CTC UMW support and your continued prayer on our behalf.

If there is any way you and your United Methodist Women can help- please do so! There will be church members there on Saturday to take your donations.  It would be good if you could organize a collection spot today and get one person to deliver water and eggs to St. Barnabas. The water will be needed for some time. If you can't bring donations, please remember to pray for all affected by these storms. The church's address is 5011 West Pleasant Ridge Road, Arlington, 76016- 817-483-1667 Please let me know if you have any questions.  Call me on my cell number below.
In Christ's love,


Cynthia
