Hall County Schools start back on August 6. The South Hall Community Food Pantry will be packing book bags and giving them out at the Pantry, to families with school aged children, starting July 31. All of the sponsoring churches are gathering supplies to fill 50 book bags. McEverites have been asked to gather 50 each of the following:

  • Notebook paper 150 count (wide or regular ruled)
  • 12” rulers
  • Erasers—pink rectangular and/or pencil


If you’re out and about and can pick up some supplies, place them in the Pantry black & yellow tub on the front porch of the church Annex.


We will be packing the book bags at Oakwood First UMC on Wednesday, July 28, at 11AM. Please come help “pack.”


Our next scheduled times to volunteer at the Pantry:

Monday, July 12, 4-6 & Saturday, July 17, 10AM-12PM

Monday, July 26, 4-6PM & Saturday, July 31, 10AM-12PM


Questions or concerns, contact Jackie Buchan 678-313-8893 or Jean Prezel 678-720-6945.


FYI: Oakwood 1st UMC is having a “Last Blast of Summer”

on their campus on Saturday, July 31, 11AM-1PM.

Bring your kids and tell your friends to come join the fun!


For I was hungry and you gave me food,

I was thirsty and you gave me drink,

I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
