Vedado UMC in Cuba

While visiting the Vedado UMC in Feb 2018, the women of the church expressed a need for clothing, especially children’s clothing. We discovered that the UMW at Vedado are able to get material and usually hand sew; however, needles and thread are difficult to obtain. Instead of trying to send clothes, a team decided to buy sewing machines and teach a team of women how to use them. 

5 women from
 TN, TX and NM are going to Vedado UMC on Nov 30 - Dec 4. They will be hand carrying 2 sewing machines and will be conducting sewing classes for 10 women from Vedado UMW who will then begin a sewing ministry within their congregation. 

If you would like to donate money to help purchase sewing materials or donate medicines to take to Vedado UMC, contact Vicki Warren. Here is a list of needed medicine for children and adults:

Our church will work with the Red Bird Mission Crafts division of Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky to host an Appalachian Craft Fair on September 29, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.

Available handmade items will include honeysuckle vine, creek willow, and reed baskets, jewelry, hand-painted gourds, woven placemats, brooms for use or decoration, dolls, corn shuck flowers.

Community Care Fellowship Fall Fundraiser: October 2

This year will be at The Cordelle on Lindsley Avenue in Nashville, a great event space owned by East Nashville locals. They'll have live entertainment, a silent auction, and plenty to eat and drink, but no assigned seating (and no keynote speaker). Community Care Fellowship's mission has been unchanged for 34 years—to serve Christ by providing families and individuals who are at risk of chronic homelessness and poverty with hope, love, and resources so that they may experience physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation. Their fall fundraiser is the single largest source of funding for the calendar year and is what makes their services and programs possible. Please mark your calendar for October 2nd and make plans to join them to celebrate the work that CCF is doing in the Nashville community!
