Fishing to serve the world

One Great Hour of Sharing

During Lent, Presbyterians in Marshall and all over the country are stuffing cardboard fish with coins for the One Great Hour of Sharing offering.  Again this year MPC will have a "fishing contest" with another Presbyterian Church in Texas - sharing the fun in a conference call the Sunday after Easter.  
Your organization may want to apply for help from the One Great Hour of Sharing.  Madison County's Neighbors in Need has been granted funds from OGHS in the past. 

The combined offerings are shared through grants:

April 7: Free lunch, great folks

Enjoy lunch with your community:
  • Noon, Sunday, April 7
  • Marshall Presbyterian Church social hall
ROARRural Organizing and Resilience, is joining with Marshall Presbyterian Church and Beacon of Hope to offer lunch to the Madison County community.  All are welcome.  

This is not a fund raiser, there is no charge.  

The goal is to have Madison County community folks meet, break bread, and chat with other Madison County community folks.

ROARRural Organizing and Resilience formed in Madison County, NC in the Spring of 2017 in response to the need for a rural voice working for all who call these mountains home.  ROAR works to strengthen connections and respect among all people in our mountain communities by countering systems of oppression through education, outreach, empowerment and mutual aid.

Don't miss this opportunity!

Ash Wednesday is March 6!

...and Pastor Melissa will be joining other area clergy for an Ash Wednesday service at Mars Hill University's Broyhill Chapel.

Join friends, neighbors, students, and strangers in worship and receiving ashes; the service begins at High Noon. Arrive early to get a good parking space.

For those who cannot make it to today's service, there will be another opportunity this Sunday, March 10, here at Marshall Presbyterian Church at 11 a.m. with Elder Carol Brown presiding.
