The Grocery Cart- Donations requested for the August Grocery Cart will be given to Portland Avenue Church. Harvey Browne has long supported their efforts to minister to the Portland area. Most needed items: Peanut butter, toilet paper, paper towels, bleach, dish detergent, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, and diapers.
Kitchen Help- There will be a meal associated with the HBMusicians Concert (read more below) on August 28, and Dudley needs three helpers to prep, serve, and clean up after the meal. Clean-up will likely overlap the performance of the music. If you’re available and willing to assist, contact Dudley Haines.
Library Help- HB Library needs a few folks to help Will Hilyerd catalogue books. This process will continue weekly on Sundays through August at 9:00 AM to place labels on books. Easy peasy! Thank you for volunteering.

MONTREAT CO-INSPIRE CONFERENCE CONFRONTS RACISM- The conference, to be held October 7-10 at the Montreat Conference Center in western North Carolina, addresses systemic racism in the church. Co-Inspire will examine ways that we, as members of Christ’s body, might co-inspire one another to liberate imagination for new ways of being, and examine ways we can conspire to eviscerate the racism within our churches. Nancy and Bill Williamson are planning to attend and invite others to join. Total cost (room, board, and conference registration) is $325. Registration deadline is August 25 (the price goes up after that time), so contact Bill soon if you’re interested.
