    Dinner and a Movie

    Sunday, October 21 at 5PM

    Pikeside Fellowship Hall


    We invite our entire community to join us as we come together to watch the wonderful movie Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. This movie is based on the Biblical story of Joseph and his brothers and follows the journey of Joseph, who is sold into slavery by his jealous siblings. While in exile, Joseph’s knack for interpreting dreams gains him favor with Pharaoh, and leads to an unexpected reunion with the family who abandoned him. We will begin the movie at 5 pm and break for a potluck dinner, then return for the conclusion. There is no charge for this event, however, please bring a dish to share with fellow moviegoers.

    Prayer Shawl Ministry

    Created in the convenience of our homes

    Distributed from Pikeside UMC


    This ministry creates warm and cozy wraps representing the love of God and those that give it. We pray a blessing over them before the shawl is given, asking for God’s hand of healing on the recipient. The recipient does not need to be a member of our church, we reach out to all who need to know they are not alone—man, woman, or child. We also make “Chemo Caps” to keep the heads of chemotherapy patients warm. Contact the church office if you know of someone in need of these blessings or if you would like to volunteer for this ministry.
