Congregation Collects Halloween Candy for 
Oct. 28
"It's a good way to help kids stay safe on Halloween," a church-goer recently said about the annual  McCaysville/Copperhill event.  Please bring individually-wrapped pieces of candy -- no nuts -- to church by Sunday, Oct. 22. Volunteers are also needed to hand out the candy in downtown Copperhill from 5 to 7 pm on the 28th.

Urgently Needed: School Kits for American Children Uprooted by Disasters


The Puerto Rico (PR) School System has been closed for the remainder of the school year, due to hurricanes.  The school children of P R will be sent to several places in the continental U S to continue their school year, including Central Florida.  The Florida Conference has accepted the offer from Holston Conference through Holston Conference Disaster Response Ministries to provide UMCOR School Kits to the displaced P R children.  And our Cleveland District is therefore asking for our help in assembling school kits.  To download a PDF of required contents and assembly instructions, please click this link: SCHOOL KIT INSTRUCTIONS.
