PANCAKE and SAUSAGE
Lacy Austin, Life Scout in Troop 25, is currently on the path
to receive his Eagle Scout rank.
Lacy cordially invites you to his Pancake and Sausage Breakfast Fundraiser to
help raise funds to build his service project. His project is building a
Ventilation Prop at the Guil-Rand Fire Department to aid in training
firefighters to cut holes in burning buildings to release smoke.
The breakfast will be held at Guil-Rand Fire Department, 10506 S. Main Street, Archdale, NC on February 16th from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The cost is totally by your donation.
If you can't make it to the breakfast but want to support Lacy and his project, you can mail your donation to Lacy Austin, c/o Dawn Pugh, 381 Echo Trail, Thomasville, NC 27360. Just make your check to Troop 25 and write "Lacy Austin Eagle" on the memo line.
Thanks so much for your support.

FEBRUARY BIBLE READING
Scripture reading for this coming week: Exodus chapters 30-40
Our Bible reading for the month of February as a congregation is the book of Exodus. It contains 40 chapters, reading two chapters per day which began February 3. Exodus is about the Children of Israel “The Hebrews” leaving enslavement by the Egyptians and setting out to the Promised Land. It contains some great stories of faith and tragedies. I encourage you to read it aloud to yourself or with another person or family member(s) and discuss the day’s reading. Come and join us in reading through Exodus!

Next Sunday, February 24th, during our 11am Worship hour, we will be remembering those within our Meeting who died in 2018. A special time of remembrance will be shared by friends and family members.

RUN 5 FEED 5
Run 5 Feed 5 is a local organization that hosts events during the year including a 5K walk in the spring to fund programs that provide
nourishment for hungry children in our community. 100% of the funds that are raised go to organizations that provide food for less fortunate children. In an effort to raise money, Run 5 Feed 5 is planning their Sixth Annual 5K walk/run at Trinity High School on March 30, 2019. The entry fee to run or walk is $25.00 and it includes a custom t-shirt. Financial contributions are received also. For more details, you can go to Run 5 Feed 5 Facebook page. You may contact Kim Reddick,
President of Run 5 Feed 5 at 336-688-7143. There is information on the table outside our church offices.
GYM OPEN FOR INDOOR WALKING
Monday—Thursday 12:30pm to 2:00pm
Beginning in March, the Family Life Center gym will be available for those who would like to walk indoors for exercise. While no walking is permitted while the Archdale Friends School is in session, open walking hours will be Monday – Thursday, from 12:30pm until 2:00pm. Walkers should enter the church from the front entrance outside the church office, and should check in with either Marlene or Linda to obtain a “VISITOR BADGE” before proceeding to the gym. These hours will be operational from September 1 through May 30 only. The gym will not be open on days when children are here the entire day or during the summer. Also, please be sure to turn your visitor badge back in to the church office before 2pm, as the church closes promptly at 2pm each day. A weekly walking calendar will be posted in the bulletin each week so that walkers know the days when the gym may not be available.
While security for our preschool and school-age programs is of utmost importance, we feel that we can safely offer this walking opportunity and maintain our security policies at the same time. However, please remember that you must wear the VISITOR BADGE at all times, and turn it in when you leave. Archdale Friends School Governing Board
