Beginning the first Sunday in October (Oct. 5, 2014) and each following first Sunday of every month, two Board members will be available in the Library between services at 10:15 am to discuss what went on at the Board meeting and other topics of interest to you. We will call it the Board Coffee Chat. We hope you will join us to become familiar with what the Board is doing to help grow our Fellowship. Your input and interest are important to the members of the Board as we strive to implement our mission.
When Faith Hollifield, the music coordinator at Petree Elementary School, introduces her students to instruments of the orchestra, she will have a silver flute to illustrate her lecture. Fellowship member Arnold Gelbin donated a flute belonging to his recently deceased wife, Marjorie. The flute is currently being refurbished, thanks to a generous donation from Arnold. “It will be wonderful to have a real instrument to show the students,” Ms. Hollifield responded when she was told of the donation. Petree students begin playing the recorder in fourth grade as a precursor to choosing a band instrument after they move on from Petree.
You're invited to the first 4th-Sunday sorting party for our Community Clothes Closet! Join us after service, up the hill at 4045 Robinhood Road, for orientation, refreshments, & fellowship as we sort donated clothing. The Clothes Closet will also be open to visitors from 12:30-2:00

We invite you to investigate with us how we can be kind and compassionate towards ourselves on a more consistent basis. We will start the meeting with a discussion of the second paragraph of the Humanist Manifesto III, which begins with the sentence “Humans are an integral part of nature, the result of unguided evolutionary change.” If you are interested in Humanism with Heart, please send your name, email address and preferred phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org to join our email list or click to sign up online.

Muddy Creek Greenway is one of many birding "hot spots" in Forsyth County. We will meet at Don Kautz & Carol Ziel's house, 4620 Century Oak's Lane at 8:30 am. Don will have a picture guide of the birds that have been seen the previous week there, and off we will go. The Greenway is in their backyard! This is a paved walk, so good walking shoes will do. We won't walk more than about a mile. We will spend about an hour out looking for birds, and then come back to Carol and Don's for a light brunch.
