A good time was had by all visiting this local sanctuary that cares for injured birds to nurse them back to health and return them to the wild.
Volunteers like Toni interpret what they do for visitors as they dedicate their time to care for God's creatures.
Pauline Lawhorn was a long-time member of Rockton United Methodist Church and at the beginning of January 2022 a memorial to her was placed in the narthex of our Sanctuary. Pauline was known for welcoming visitors and for her tireless dedication to spreading the gospel. She organized numerous events/get-togethers and taught the adult Sunday-School class for many years. Her favorite scripture was the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19 ". . . go and make disciples of all nations . . ." Her daughter, Judie Heinschel, and husband, Bob Lawhorn, stand on either side of the stained glass portrait of Jesus and the Great Commission that will now remind everyone as they leave our Sanctuary of this important work that she loved so much.

Due to Covid, the meals were brown bag lunches which included ham/cheese sandwiches and numerous sides plus notes.
Unable to do hot meals, the gang had to mix up some extra goodies. All in all, they delivered over 70 lunches to the Emmanuel Episcopal Community Soup Kitchen.
Every bag needs a sweet treat for desert and Katherine got the enviable job of stuffing in the good stuff.
Somebody has to do the clean up and the group was thankful Elizabeth was there to do the job.
Henry Ford would be proud. Look at that assembly line of ham & cheese sandwiches they've got lined up!
Thanks again to the scouts of Troop 619 who helped get the kitchen clean and ready for events like this.
Janet & Margo give folks a new outlook.
