Random Act of Kindness
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just need to do something good! On Sat., Oct. 13, at 7:30 am a group of folk at Bear Creek UMC aim to do just that. We’ll meet at 7:30 for a short breakfast and then head out as a group to bless someone else’s life with our hands and hearts. Our goal is to be done by 10:30...that’s a.m.! Come join us! PS: If you know of someone who could use 10 or so willing hands for a Saturday project, give Pastor Brook a call at 6056107793!
