Happy Valentine’s Day, Ladies,


While the meaning and celebration of Valentine’s Day has changed from a church holiday to honor martyrs and saints, it has remained a special day to shower with love those we hold close.


February 11th is our General Meeting after the late service at 12:30.  Dr. Beth Mills, Pharm. D and CDE at both Campbell University and Benson Area Medical Center will be our speaker and will talk to us about women’s heart health.  Gifts of the Heart will be collected for this meeting and will go to Benson Area Medical Center emergency patient food bags.  Nonperishable food items, such as:  Peanut Butter – Canned Meat – Canned or Cups of Veggies and Fruit – and Saltine Crackers.  If you usually attend the early service, please consider coming to the late service and stay for the meeting.  Lunch will be served and we look forward to seeing you at the meeting.  See the church bulletin insert for this event.


Annual Spring Retreat will be May 18th through May 20th again at Oak Island.  We will travel to Oak Island for a fun-filled weekend of Bible study, fellowship, and a couple of days at the beach.  This year the cost will be $140.00, which includes two nights stay, two breakfasts and one lunch. The facility has an elevator.  $70.00 is due by March 1st so we can secure our room and the balance of $70.00 due by March 19th.    If you need financial assistance in order to attend, please let us know.  Full and partial scholarships are available and your request will remain strictly confidential.  Ladies, this is a great way to meet other women at Holy Cross.  Traditionally we all meet for dinner Friday at a reasonably priced seafood restaurant on the island.  Saturday night we break into small groups and go to various restaurants.  We will return to Clayton Sunday morning after our church service.


Mites Madness begins March 4th and ends March 18thPlease start to gather up extra change for the Mite Boxes which will be collected at each service during communion.  Someone will be at the altar to receive the donations.  More detailed information will be in next month’s newsletter.
