Dan River's Mainstream

We extend our sympathy to the:

  • James Guthrie family (Cathy Younger’s father)

Thank You
I want to thank you for the visits, cards and gifts during the seven years (my father) was at the Commonwealth Senior Living.  Also for the visits, cards, food, phone calls and for the ones who came to the visitation and services.  All of the kind deeds and words were appreciated.  You, my Church Family were good to us.

The Children’s Committee is planning a trip to Kings Dominion Saturday, April 28.  The cost is $35.50 with the group rate.  We are looking into spending the night Friday, the 27th near the park.  This trip is open to all children, youth and church friends.  Please sign up on the sheet near the mailboxes by April 22.  All money should be given to Kristy Satterfield, Vanessa Mason or Megan Ferrell.  If you are interested in the hotel please let Megan Ferrell know by the 22nd.  (434-470-6349)

Youth Helpers Needed
Do you remember a Sunday School teacher or youth worker who made a difference in your life?   Children and youth need someone to listen and make a difference.  We are looking for dedicated Christian volunteers to help with Sunday Youth meetings until we can find a Youth Pastor.
You can help by:
* providing a meal for meeting nights
* leading devotions
* planning games or activities
**Contact Carolyn Lewis (575-7337) or the church office (572-3547) if you want to help.

Senior Adult Sunday
The Senior Adults will be in charge of the worship service Sunday, May 6.

Baby Dedication
Dan River has been blessed with families who have welcomed “little bundles of joy” into their homes.  Each year we celebrate these tiny miracles by providing a service of “Baby Dedication.”  If you (or someone you know) would like to be included in this service on Mother’s Day, May 13, please contact the church office at 572-3547.
If you decide to participate in this service we will need the following information from you:
Child’s full name
Parent’s names
Child’s date of birth
Child’s place of birth
You may email or call the church office with the above information by Wednesday, May 2.  (; 572-3547)

High School and College Graduate Recognition
Please contact the Church Office if you have or know of a 2018 high school or college graduate who would like to be recognized for their accomplishments.  Graduate Recognition Sunday will be Sunday, May 20.

Mission Action
Our April church-wide mission action project focuses on the Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake.  It offers a comforting home away from home and a community of support for seriously ill children and their families.  Currently, the house is at full capacity.  It also supplies family rooms at Duke and Wake Med with snacks.  How can we help?  We can donate individually packaged snacks like chips, nabs, and Little Debbie cakes.  Boxes will be placed in the usual places.  Karen Smith will shop for you; she can also answer any questions.

WEE Employment Opportunities
As the new W.E.E. School year approaches, there are employment opportunities.  Available positions include PreK teacher, 3-4 year old afternoon teacher, and 2 year old afternoon teacher.  Please see Karen Smith, director, or call 572-3547 for more information.  If God has called you to work with children, and you want to be blessed, working at W.E.E. School may be for you!  Remember children are our most precious gifts.  Please share with others who may be interested.
