"Students See Cracks in the Wall Separating Church and State" will be the topic at the February 23 meeting of the Triad Chapter of Americans United. Ellis Brown, Marissa Siavelis, and Noah Washburn will provide insight into how local high-school students view hot-button issues such as the mandatory Pledge of Allegiance, school vouchers, home schooling, and curriculum revision. The moderator will be Ms. Leigh Humphrey, who teaches Advance Placement US History at the Career Center. The Tuesday evening meeting will be held at the Polo Recreation Center (1850 Polo Road, Winston-Salem) from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
A revised Share the Plate program has begun that shares every plate, every Sunday, with a designated monthly partner. With members and visitors able to contribute to our partners every Sunday, instead of just the first Sunday, the hope is that overall plate collections will increase, thus resulting in more funds for our partners and more funds for the Fellowship. This model is being used successfully at other congregations. Please place cash and checks in the Sunday offering basket to support this program. All funds not designated toward pledges will be shared 50/50. [Please put "share" in the memo line of checks.]
This month we will share the plate with WSSU's GAP Scholarship Fund, created to assist those students who do not have any financial aid remaining and only need 1-2 classes to complete their degree requirements. It's specifically to keep students from leaving just short of graduation due to financial shortfalls. Often the amount needed to help a student graduate is just $300 or so. Please contribute as you are able ALL MONTH during our worship services at 9 and 11.
