God's Perfect Timing by Janet Myers


How often have you said to someone “your timing is perfect?” In the last 6 weeks, I have experienced God’s perfect timing.  During a dinner conversation at a Wednesday Night Fellowship Supper, a church member, who I will call Lydia, shared a touching story about a special gift she received some time back. While Lydia had every good intention of using this gift, time passed, it only collected dust and took up space. Lydia listened that night as I shared about my love for sewing and how I especially enjoyed applique and creative sewing projects. Several weeks later Lydia approached me with a wonderful surprise!  She wanted me to have that special gift that she had spoken about at dinner one night. You guessed it! It's a sewing machine!  Not just any sewing machine, but a machine that has all the bells and whistles that a seamstress dreams about!  Little did I know that this sewing machine would later be the work horse that has enabled me to sew over 400 face masks for first responders and healthcare professionals in our community during the COVID19 Crisis. You may be thinking, “Lydia’s timing was just right,”but I think it was God’s timing, His perfect timing. He’s never too early, never too late, but ALWAYS on time!

New Mask Sewing Ministry Needs Your Help!

3/31/20Update on Mask Sewing Ministry:  There are 5 women and 1 man sewing to provide masks for local health care workers.  Seven agencies have been served so far.  All are local agencies except fr one in Mocksville.  Over 200 masks have been sewn and donated so far.  Requests are still coming in and they'll continue to sew until the need no longer exists.  Needs: Financial support for the purchase of thread and machine needles, men's polo knit shirts, tight weave and NO NYLON.  We've also added a sign on the containers the masks are in.  


How all of this started:

When church member, Penny Rose, who works in a certified nursing facility, called church member Janet Myers asking about the possibility of sewing masks for their staff, Janet gladly accepted the task!  Janet is also working with a liaison at Randolph Health and Moses Cone to sew masks and face shields.   The great thing about fabric masks is they can be laundered and reused.  Volunteers are needed to help sew.  If…

Nothing is Impossible: Luke 1.26-38 (ESV)

It’s a season of hope, Christmas is coming.As we celebrate our veterans today we are reminded of hope.The reason people go into our military is hope; we have a hope for a future.We believe we can make a difference.God gave Elizabeth hope.She was told she was going to have a son.Elizabeth is six months pregnant and an angel is speaking to Mary.Hope isn’t just from stories 2000 years ago.God entered into our world.Right now, in His presence we too can find hope.What is God doing?God spoke to Elizabeth and then to Mary.Hope is beginning to grow.People are asking questions.
God brings hope.Are we open to the possibility that God can bring hope into our lives?

Corona Caroling

Church member, Alison Hargett has led a group to minister in a local assisted living center.   They've led Bible School for the residents for a few years now and this has turned into a monthly Bible Study for residents with her, her daughters and some other moms and their daughters as well.  In this season of social distancing and lockdown for assisted living facilites, Alison's group got creative and went, "Corona Caroling" last week.  They sang outside the windows to the residents. 






The windows couldn't be opened but they sang loud and the residents loved it!  They did a couple of songs with American Sign Language and brought smiles to faces.  They've made plans with another facility for this coming week and look forward to doing this again.  "We can't do our normal Bible Study but we figured out a way to bring them a little joy anyways!" said Hargett.

After the group did this they received another invitation to sing at another facility.  Th…
